BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2015 Alfredo Figaro owns a 98 mph fastball and a 1.9 HR/9 rate.
2014 The Brewers became enamored with Figaro thanks to a strong showing in the Dominican Summer League, and a competent spring training earned him his first major-league roster spot—and his first American roster spot at any level—since 2010. Figaro showed big-league velocity with a fastball that touched 98 and regularly sat above 95, but it had little life, leading to home run issues. Still, he could control it, and a big fastball with control is usually enough to survive in the majors. Will Figaro thrive? Without improvement, he seems destined for long relief, but considering their small investment the Brewers should be satisfied with their marriage to Figaro.
2011 Alfredo Figaro can be Figaro Alfredo, which is to say that he doesn't lack cheese; the slight Dominican whips a low-90s fastball and darting slider that would likely play up in shorter appearances, and a dodgy changeup that will determine whether he’ll be trusted to face big-league lefties. In the short term, the Tigers didn't trust him to face big-league anyone, selling his contract to the Orix Buffaloes.
2010 Figaro is either "skinny" or "wiry," depending on your level of optimism for him; either way, it brings into doubt his ability to remain a starting pitcher. A cousin of Fernando Rodney, he has a pretty good fastball that can occasionally reach 95, and could be expected to do that more consistently in short relief. He started two mid-season games for Detroit before a sprained wrist sidelined him for two months; all of his relief appearances followed that DL stint.
2009 On a numbers level, Figaro was as good as anyone in the Midwest League last year, with a season that included a pair of complete-game three-hit shutouts, almost unheard of in Low-A. He's a short, skinny Dominican with a lightning-fast arm who throws a low-90s sinker as well as a promising curve and changeup. He ran out of gas after a promotion to the Florida State League, and he doesn't project as a big star, but the Tigers thought enough of him to put him on the 40-man roster in order to avoid losing him in the Rule 5 draft.
