YearComment
2012 Jose Ascanio has mid-90s heat, but he's been derailed by arm injuries—labrum surgery following the 2009 season, and an elbow strain last spring. He'll keep getting chances somewhere as long as he can throw hard.
2011 Ascanio had a lost year after undergoing labrum surgery in October 2009, not making his 2010 debut until August, after which he made it through only two minor-league rehab appearances before suffering a hand injury in a home accident, ending his season. Ascanio has pitched a grand total of five times since the Pirates acquired him from the Cubs at the 2009 deadline. Armed with a four-seam fastball that reaches 95 mph and a solid two-seamer, the near-26-year-old Ascanio has a chance to be an effective middle reliever or more—if he can ever get healthy.
2010 The Pirates never really got the chance to see what they had in Jose Ascanio after acquiring him from the Cubs before he landed on the DL with a shoulder that eventually required surgery in October to repair his rotator cuff; he won't be able to return to game action until at least June.
2009 The hard-throwing Ascanio had opportunities to sneak into the back end of the bullpen, but tendencies towards high strikes and too many cookies—especially to left-handed hitters—bode ill. If he can keep pumping gas in the mid-90s, he'll get looked at, but the Venezuelan has to be consistent at the right time during the team's moment of need to pan out.
2008 Jose Ascanio is a project with a big-league fastball and a solid slider who was rushed last summer and dealt to the Cubs over the winter.
