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).
2016 Hard-throwing right-hander Cory Mazzoni became the fifth pitcher in MLB history to allow at least 20 runs in fewer than 10 innings, and then followed his act of vandalism by escaping to the disabled list with a strained shoulder.
2015 Cory Mazzoni's season was abbreviated by a strained lat that kept him out for two months. He hasn't made a relief appearance since his first year of pro ball, but for reasons both in and out of his control, the time may be nigh.
2014 Cory Mazzoni’s K/9 jumped to 10.4—thanks to a heater that sits 93-94 with movement—and he could make his big league debut in 2014. He’s always been a starter, but for an undersized right-hander who will impact the rotation, see Montero, Rafael.
2013 Mazzoni has received plaudits for his smooth delivery, and he does bring a hard fastball, but his questionable secondary stuff and relatively small stature mark him as a likely reliever. It's too early to fully consign him to that fate, though: His back-of-the-rotation upside is still in play. He'll need to miss more bats if he wants to reach that ceiling. The list of right-handed pitchers without size who succeed despite striking out six men per nine in the minors is shorter than, well, than the pitchers themselves.
2012 2011 second-round pick Cory Mazzoni was fantastic in short stints after signing, but will be developed initially as a starter.
