John Schreiber

(ranks out of 116 rookies)

Grade: D+

Analysis: Schreiber has done a good job throwing strikes for most of the season, and that’s helped him stay out of more trouble, but otherwise he’s been below average across the board. His unusual delivery offers some deception, but it’s not really helping his miss bats or keeping batters from hitting him hard. He’s been a bit unlucky, but even with average luck his best role would probably be mop-up duty.
