Starting Pitcher | Retired or Inactive Players
Naputi likes to get hitters looking down and away, then ties them up by coming inside with hard stuff, getting a lot of groundball outs. Naputi can get into trouble with walks, and there's concern about him being able to maintain his stuff over the whole season. His fastball gets into the high 80s, but it's the sink that makes the pitch effective. Naputi also has a decent changeup. He attacks lefties and righties with similar success.
Defense & Hitting
For a lefty, his move to first base is average at best, and he has a tendency to forget about runners at second, thereby creating opportunities to swipe third. Naputi is nothing special in the field. Naputi is a surpisingly good hitting pitcher. And I'm not sure you can say this about a pitcher, but Naputi has some pop in his swing. Interesting sidenote, The Retired or Inactive Players have been known to use Naputi as a pinch-runner on occasion.
If Naputi doesn't perform, the Retired or Inactive Players won't hesitate to send him down to the minors. I just don't know if The Retired or Inactive Players are ever going to get what they expect out of him.
