2009 Big, fireballing lefty reliever Andy Sisco had Tommy John surgery last April and hopes to work his way back to the majors this year.
2008 On the Sox' too-long list of interesting science experiments gone bad, there's still reason to invest some hope in Sisquatch. After all, he's still 6-foot-10 and still throws hard. The Rule 5 draft interrupted his development-providing another reminder of how it can derail a guy-but Sisco has still managed to have his moments. The team has attempted to help him harness his power assortment by giving him more innings to pitch, but it isn't working; he hasn't shown progress with his heat or his slider in Triple-A or a repeat engagement in the Mexican Winter League. He'll never make it through waivers, but riding around on the wire could be his fate.
2007 Sisquatch had a sophomore season as disappointing as his rookie season was promising. His slider flattened out, he lost command of his fastball, and his ERA more than doubled. Lefties smacked him to the tune of .318/.430/.489, which for a southpaw with his height and arm angle is unforgivable. The Royals` frustration with Sisco was understandable, but so was the White Sox` interest. He still has three major assets: his physique, his stuff, and his youth. Now he`s working with a pitching coach, Don Cooper, who has had success processing raw arms into finished pitchers. The Royals sent him to winter ball in Mexico as a starter, and the White Sox say they`ll let Sisco decide which role suits him best.
2005 Sisco is a monster of a guy at 6'9" and 265 lbs. He's got middling mechanics, gives up a lot of flyballs, doesn't have a good breaking pitch just yet, and both his walk rate and his home-run rate were up at Daytona. In short, he's going to need all his development time, and is about the last guy who might benefit from a premature year on a major league roster. Whether that played into the Cubs' decision to leave him exposed for the Rule 5 draft is hard to say; most clubs are going to take one look at him, think Randy Johnson, and look for the sharpie to sign the contract. Now a Royal.
2004 There's been a rash of Really Tall Dudes attempting to make it as pitchers in recent years, and Sisco might be the most imposing physical specimen yet. At 6'9" and around 265 pounds, Sisco looks like the result of some bizarre genetic foible involving Randy Johnson and David Wells (or, more fairly, David Wells with a recessive gene that motivates him to hit the gym twice a week). We've had point guards, quarterbacks, goalies, and tight ends that went on to be big league baseball players, but Sisco was recruited as a defensive lineman. Sisco's fastball-curve combo is good and should continue to get better, as should his command. He's well ahead of where Randy Johnson was at the same age. The concern is his delivery. Sisco has an odd %ths arm slot, and a habit of leaning forward with his body that leaves him off-kilter as he releases the ball. Although the injury that sidelined him for part of the summer did not occur while he was on the mound--Sisco broke his hand, reportedly as a result of punching a clubhouse wall-refining his mechanics is critical given the big frame he's carrying.
