BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2005 After finally breaking down and having his shoulder operated on last winter, Leskanic began the year in the back of the Royals bullpen and performed about as well as everyone else on the Kansas City roster. The Sox picked him up after he was released and despite a month on the DL for that same shoulder, he was useful down the stretch, still throwing in the low-90s with a nice slider to boot. Whether or not he hangs 'em up this winter is anyone's guess, but we bet you'll see him tossing 50 innings some place next year.
2004 Allard Baird finally found his grail: a reliever that could get guys out. Leskanic's style is about as subtle as Jim Caney: a fastball at 95, a slider at 85, and a tip of the cap if you can hit either one. He's one of the more underrated relievers in the game, as one of the few pitchers to have tamed Coors Field and make a full recovery from rotator cuff surgery. He'll be back for another year in the set-up role, but he brings with him closer insurance in case MacDougal struggles again.
