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 Josh Sborz's particular struggles to throw strikes and miss left-handed bats at Double-A foreshadowed a likely conversion to situational relief work, where his explosive heater and solid slider will have a better chance to play with modest control.
2017 A fastball/slider pitcher with good command, Josh Sborz showed he could handle the lower minors. The question is whether he can handle a long-term role in the rotation.
