BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2018 Due to publishing agreements, the 2018 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2018 book (available in hardcopy, and soon e-book and Kindle).
2017 Pluto: a dwarf planet on the fringes of the solar system. Adam Plutko: an archetypical fifth starter destined for the fringes of the rotation.
2016 Adam Plutko pitched in the same rotation as Gerrit Cole and Trevor Bauer in college, and he's still not conceding rank: He absolutely dominated High-A, then pitched well in Double-A. But the BABIP, and he doesn't carry top-end stuff, and... yeah, we'd still rather have Cole.
2015 Adam Plutko threw in the mid-90s in high school but the velocity has been sliding backward ever since, so now he's a 90 mph strike-thrower, which is unlikely to work at higher levels.
