Some combination of scouting and analytics. But yeah, both Clark and Lee are fringe guys for me.

Do you have renewed faith in Micker Adolfo? Dude is hitting bombs this year.
Eric A Longenhagen
1:08
There are some statistical red flags, I'm still a bit apprehensive.

After a rough start Reggie Lawson's stat line looks better the last 3 games 24/3 K/BB ratio. Heard anything about how his stuff looks?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:09
The same. Low-90s, might creep up to 94, 95, curveball feel is good.

Is Adonis Medina one of the Phillies arms likely in your current Top 100?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:09
I think he deserves consideration.
Danny

What do you think of Matt Sauer's chances of staying a starter?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:10
40%
Nils
1:11
Since Miguel Almonte came off the DL, he's had 2 RP appearances.  Is this a matter of building back his arm strength or is this the beginning of his move to the pen?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:11
He's probably a RP at this point.
Ricky

Are body type and body projection different for domestic players vs international players. Could diet and culture affect their physical growth?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:15
Good question. Physical projection plays a unique role in projecting the J2 kids. Some of them are very physically immature and others have lots of present strength, the gap can be quite vast. Giving a 16 year old $1mil and turning him loose in America can absolutely backfire when the kids discover fast food.

Isaac Paredes is 18 this whole season in A-ball and seems to be hitting well-enough for a shortstop.  Does he have projection left and will he have to move to 3rd?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:17
I've heard he's improved his conditioning but still projects to 3B for me.
Some want to see him catch.

Higher ceiling:  Isan Diaz, Delvin Perez?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:17
Delvin
Joe Douglas
1:18
You mentioned on the Pod that Will Craig is having a horrible season. Does that entirely hinge on the move to 1B? 140 wRC+ is not horrible at 3B, bar is just high at 1B.
Eric A Longenhagen
1:19
He's a 1B-only college hitter struggling to hit for power in A-ball.]
Andy
1:20
What did you see from Austin Beck last night?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:21
A talented kid who needs time to adjust to pro pitching. He's clearly never seen anything like what he saw last night, which was, in order, a low-slot righty with a funky breaking ball, 95-99 from Stetson Allie, 94-96 from Yeison Cespedes.
baby bull
1:23
have you seen Kyle Lewis yet in 2017? any update on him?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:24
Not yet. He's down here rehabbing (again). Think I'm heading to Peoria on Wednesday so if he's still here and playing, that's when I'll catch him.
Hank
1:25
I've noticed Lucas Herbert has began to finally hit, could he end up a MLB backup?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:25
That's probably his ceiling.
Ducklin
1:26
How does faedo rank alongside other Det sp prospects such as manning, burrows, funkhouser?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:26
Behind them, but those guys have all been great so that's not a knock on Faedo.
Bear Hands
1:26
Did you watch Luis Castillo's major league outing? Do you think he can stick in the rotation now and what's his ceiling?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:26
I did not, I'm working on July 2 stuff.
Anthony
1:26
Are you still bullish on Yadi Alvarez? His most recent coverage has seemed overwhelmingly negative. Him or Buehler ATP?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:27
Still bullish, albeit a bit dismayed. Buehler at this point.
SK
1:27
What are your thoughts on Ryan McMahon - doesn't seem to get enough hype. How do you project he'll perform in the bigs?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:27
Can't find anyone who has seen him over the years that can pinpoint a reason for the improvement.
Nate
1:28
Which side of the plate will Francisco Mejia be a better hitter on in the Majors?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:28
RH
SK
1:29
Jae-Gyun Hwang 's release date is coming up soon - he's not exactly a 'prospect' but how do you think his skills will translate in the bigs?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:29
Haven't seen him, scouts I've talked to who have think he's a bench guy.
Kosch
1:29
Could Derek Fisher be a 2 WAR player in the majors right now?  He's gotta be better than Aoki at this point right?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:29
2 WAR right now? Pretty agressive.
