i have info:


credit BaseballAmerica top 10 list from year 2000...



. Steve Colyer, LHP

B-T: L-L Ht: 6-4 Wt: 205

Drafted: Meramec (Mo.) JC, D/F 1997 (2nd round) Signed by: Mike Hankins

Background: Colyer is a perfect example of why the Dodgers need a low Class A affiliate. Usually a pitcher at his age with inconsistent command would pitch below the California League.


Strengths: Colyer?s raw stuff should place him higher on this list. He throws a mid-90s fastball and a power overhand curveball, both potential strikeout pitches when he has good command. Colyer?s changeup showed improvement last summer.


Weaknesses: Colyer hasn?t shown maturity on the mound or off the field to take advantage of his natural tools. His approach is inconsistent from start to start, and scouts felt that he gave up late in the year. Colyer?s command would improve if he simply concentrated more.


The Future: Colyer will turn the corner if he dedicates himself to being a major league pitcher. Some members of the organization believe Colyer?s best role might be as a power reliever who could come in and throw in the upper 90s for an inning at a time.
