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 Jordan Sheffield struck out a batter an inning as a starter across two levels of A-ball in his first full season, and he has the stuff, command and delivery of a future high-leverage bullpen asset.
2017 Jordan Sheffield is a short right-hander with a high-effort delivery, a scar from Tommy John surgery and a hot fastball-breaker combination. You're expecting us to say his future is in the bullpen, right? Well, his future might be in the bullpen.

2017-07-25 20:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on the Great Lakes rotation? Obviously Dustin May is dreamy, but I'd love to hear more about A.J. Alexy. Thanks.
(Steve from LA)
I wish I could tell you about Alexy, but I've missed him this year. I've had some misfortune with Great Lakes and ended up with Jordan Sheffield three times. I can confirm that May is very dreamy though, I saw him twice and think he's legit. -Emmett (Emmett Rosenbaum & Nathan Graham)
