ON Top 50 Prospects 2012 – #49: Wynn Pelzer

The Orioles acquired Wynn Pelzer from the Padres in return for Miguel Tejada prior to the 2010 trade deadline. At the time of the deal, Pelzer had just been moved to the bullpen after struggling with his command as a starter. The Orioles kept him as a reliever when he pitched with Bowie in 2010, and he performed well, striking out 20 while walking just 7 in 20 Eastern League innings.

Different good or different bad? I don't think he is starter material. I'd prefer to see him tried in a long relief role.

Bad way. His command hasn't been the same. He's definitely a relief arm going forward.

Does anyone have an opinion as to whether his control problems are related to trying to throw too hard or an inability to repeat his delivery?

good question. I haven;t seen him enough to fully know the answer to that though.

But all I can say is Pelzer is a MUST follow on twitter. He is pretty amusing haha.
