BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2017 The last name on the World Championship t-shirt—and on every list he’s ever been on, probably—Zastryzny has a chance to avoid making 2016 the highlight of his nascent big-league career. He’s got a solid four-pitch mix, has demonstrated reasonable durability over four minor-league seasons and should be in line for a shot in the rotation sometime soon (although maybe not in 2017). When he gets there, he’ll probably want to add depth to his curveball, which is a little flat at the moment, but otherwise has a good shot at a few solid years at the back of somebody’s rotation.
