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).
2016 Yet another near-ready starter whose season was derailed by elbow trouble, Casey Sadler opted for a PRP injection rather than Tommy John surgery. Modern medicine is evidence that miracles happen every day, but Sadler is probably going to have an elbow zipper by the time you read this.
2015 Hailing from Western Oklahoma State College—the same place that produced Andrelton Simmons—Sadler has outdone most 25th-round picks by reaching the majors. He could make many more appearances, but it won't be in the starting role he filled for Indianapolis. In the bullpen, his average sinker-slider combination gives him a chance against righties. Picture Jared Hughes, only shorter. Now picture Jared Hughes' ERA, only larger. That's Sadler.
