BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2019  Due to publishing agreements, the 2019 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2019 book (available in hardcopy, and soon e-book and Kindle).
2018 Southpaw Caleb Ferguson rode a solid heater and plus-flashing hook to one of the better pitching seasons in the high-octane California League, pacing the circuit's qualified starters in ERA and whiff rate.
2017 A 38th-round pick, Caleb Ferguson can run his heavy fastball with plus life up to 93 mph from the left side, with a breaking ball that could get to average. There have been lengthy careers built on less.
