What do you think of Gavin Cecchini's throwing issues? How about the bat?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:09
Throwing issues kill chances of playing SS if they persist. I like the bat to ball, no power.

Corey Ray, Lewis Brinson and Trent Clark. How good could this OF be for the Brewers in a few years?
Eric A Longenhagen

Even better than that if Monte Harrison's tools play consistently.

So, how much do you change your evaluation of a prospect after a pretty short stint in the majors? How long do you give them to 'adjust' before you start to worry?

Unless the stuff or tools go way up or down inexplicably I think patience is important. Guys who make seamless transitions are exceptionally rare.

Is German Marquez a starter for the Rockies in 2017? please rank him against C.Kuhl, J.Cotton, Y.Mendez. Thanks.
Eric A Longenhagen

I'd have him ahead of everyone but Mendez and I love Cotton.

Who has more value right now, Urias or Sale?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:13
Sale has been an Ace, let me repeat that because I think it's the first time I've used it in a chat since I was hired, ACE for years now. I know the contract situation makes it a more complex equation, though.

Is Robert Gsellman in the same tier as Jose De Leon?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:14
I think that's about right, yes.

What can you tell me about desmond Lindsay? Potential breakout candidate who can rise up lists quickly?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:15
Mature body but the tools are good and he was undervalued pre-draft because of injury. Already looks like a bit of a steal.

Any strong feelings on Christin Stewart or Mike Gerber? With JD likely on the way out, what can Tigers expect from their OF prospects?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:16
I like Gerber but had concerns about him vs LHP in AFL. Think the glove might be good enough to play him everyday, and live with him vs LHP. Stewart is going to swing and miss a ton but the power probably makes up for the ills there, even if he's just an average regular.

What's the highest hit tool grade you have ever given a prospect pre-majors? Who was it?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:17
I've put 7s on several prospects. Christian Arroyo and Jesse Winker come to mind.

Aaand I went way over my time. I need to hustle west for the afternoon AFL game. Everyone have a wonderful week.
