Eric A Longenhagen
12:39
Looked good in AFL. 92-96, slider, curve, change all play. I think he has at least a #3 ceiling.
Steve
12:39
Mitch Keller had a fantastic year. Would you say he is one of the biggest gainers up the prospects ranks? Does he have a chance to be on the same level is Glasnow/Taillon?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:39
Definitely popped up but not on the other guys' level for me. Not yet, anyway.
Eric
12:40
Reports on Sixto Sanchez?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:41
Short but not small, mid-90s,, will touch higher. Pounds the zone. Mixed reports on the secondaries. Really good prospect, though.
Jeb
12:41
How has the latest CBA affected the next J2 class? Any broken deals, etc. or were teams non-committal, knowing that the CBA might derail their plans?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:41
Actually because of the CBA uncertainty and the helicopter parentage of MLB since the Red Sox issues this summer, teams don't really have deals with kids yet.
12:42
Next year's class is kind of odd. Outfield-heavy, not as many SS up top.
Julio Rodriguez is a name to know.
Sebastian Grullon, too.
Brandon M
12:43
Do the Rangers have a strong enough system to make a major trade? It seems like their system has some depth, but not any real impact names
Eric A Longenhagen
12:43
If I were a GM and Daniels put Leodys Taveras on the table, I'm listening.
Drew
12:44
Acuna vs. Jahmai Jones vs. Verdugo? Do all stick in CF?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:44
Jones and Acuna might, Verdugo I doubt.
Jeb
12:44
Who're the next few teams to get top prospect write-ups?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:45
KC, DET then onto NL Central
BOBBBY
12:45
Zips has a pretty high opinion of Candelario for next year, is he ready to be an everyday third baseman?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:45
1B for me, low-end regular, 45 FV type of guyy
GSon
12:45
Brady Aiken had his FB velo back into the low 90's by the fall.. does he regain his prospect status.. enough to overtake the best pitching prospect in MiLB, Tristan McKenzie?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:46
Wrote up Aiken for the Cleveland list last week. He was 87-90 in my fall look.
Ram
12:46
Not a big fan of the Melancon signing, do the Giants have any potential closers in the system other than Black and Rodolfo Martinez?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:47
Rodolfo'a velo was way down for me in AFL.
Reyes Moronta is the other name for you
Also, I like Okert quite a bit.
Trey
12:48
Connor Greene's prospect relevance flamed out now, or still MLB potential there?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:48
He's tough. That fastball arguably plays like a 7 but there's not a whole lot else there right now.
Jeb
12:48
How different is your job at FG v. what it was at ESPN?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:49
I'm not juggling a full time job with writing anymore
Toms Cruise
12:49
The Rays haven't developed a great hitter in some time, will Willy Adames boom or bust?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:49
Boom
Kevin
12:49
Do you think Tyler O'Neill will be an above-average RF in MLB in 2-4 years?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:49
I keep dancing back and forth between a 50 and 55 for him. Your vision is realistic.
Toms Cruise
12:50
Will Derrick Fisher the Hou prospect have a better career than the NBA player? Will it be in Hou '17 or '18?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:50
Nope, ex-Laker Derek Fisher will have the better pro career.
Jason
12:50
What is the difference between Sixto Sanchez and Anderson Espinoza? Shouldn't Sanchez be getting more love?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:51
Espinoza's secondaries >
AJ
12:51
Giants going to be okay with a Williamson/Parker platoon? Can either of them be a solid big league player?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:51
I like the bigger half of the platoon there, not a Williamson fan.
I think Parker is underrated. Huge raw power.
Bill
12:52
Do you think Andrew Moore turns into a Kyle Hendricks-lite SP or is he more likely to end up a #5 SP? The guy keeps a journal after every time he pitches...
