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 Surprisingly added to the 40-man roster prior to the 2016 season despite barely pitching above rookie-ball, Randy Rosario was unimpressive at High-A and could be destined for the bullpen.
