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).
2015 Tommy John surgery robbed hard-throwing relief prospect and long-time Angels' farmhand Ryan Brasier of one last shot to make the Angels bullpen.
2014 Ryan Brasierís resume boasts a mid-90s fastball and a minor-league no-hitter that he threw as a starter back in 2010. He hasnít kept many hits off the board since, yielding a 24 percent line-drive rate and .366 BABIP in two seasons at Salt Lake.
