Welcome to the MLBTR TIM TEBOW scouting spectacular live chat.
only Tebow questions, please!
(I kid, I kid ... get some questions in and we'll get rolling momentarily)
2:00
BTW this is Jeff, subbing for Steve today. He'll take my spot on Thursday.
Joey Votto
2:01
The Votto to Toronto conversation is just noise, right?
Jeffrey Todd
2:02
Well, far as we know it hasn't picked up since last summer, so ... seemingly more of historical or analytical interest at this point.
ATX Halo
2:02
What can Halos get back for Escobar and will he clear waivers?
Jeffrey Todd
2:02
I think the DL stint pretty much nixes any chance for a deal. They never seemed to show much inclination to trade him. Honestly, that makes sense. They aren't going to rebuild. Why get rid of him and then leave yourself forced to commit multiple years at a similar cost to another player this winter?
2:03
(Escobar has a reasonably priced option.)
Aquizno
2:03
Dodgers need a right handed bat badly. Chances they acquire Braun before Thursday?
Jeffrey Todd
2:03
No indication Braun is in play.
Chris
2:04
What's the biggest name you see moving before the end of the month?
Jeffrey Todd
2:04
Hate to say it, but I don't expect any. We haven't seen any glaring holes open up or anything, so most likely just a few fairly minor deals.
Never know, though!

Hi Jeff, you're awesome! HoopsRumors does this poll, they call it NBA Draft Take Two. What are the odds of getting something like this started for MLBTradeRumors?
Jeffrey Todd
2:05
Not as awesome as you.
Man I don't know if that's something that would make quite as much sense for the MLB draft, but I'll consider raising it.

Hey Jeff. What are your thoughts on Tebow reaching the majors after 10 years?
Jeffrey Todd
2:06
I think it has been more like 12 since he has played.
His swing looked herky-jerky to me, but what do I know.
He makes the ball go far.
Best part so far is 30-40 grades on the arm. Ummmm...
And oh by the way

A real prospect just signed with the Reds: @JesseSanchezMLB
Source: Reds have agreed to a $4.75 million deal with RHP Vladimir Gutierrez, #4 on @MLB Top 30 Int'l Prospects list @MLBPipeline
Chancey
2:07
What type of contract is Jose Adolis Garcia expected to garner if he performs as expected?
Jeffrey Todd
2:07
I think he's a real wild card at the plate. Wouldn't expect a major bonus at this point.
2:08
("I think" = "If I'm reading Ben Badler correctly")
Ace
2:08
Any chance Peter Bourjos gets traded? Wouldn't make much sense for the Phillies to hold onto him
Jeffrey Todd
2:08
Yeah he's one of the most likely guys to move. Perfect guy to add on the last day of August. Wheels, glove. Option someone to make room and then bring them back shortly thereafter.
2:09
Nice piece down the stretch.
Ryan K
2:09
Chances of Puig getting traded by end on 2016?
Jeffrey Todd
2:09
By end of this season? Minimal. Calendar year? Hum .... maybe 50/50? That might be a bit high.
Sean
2:09
Manaea was taken out yesterday with some obscure injury... He gonna get shut down for the season?
Jeffrey Todd
2:10
If it is the type of thing that would require a 15-day DL stint (except for rosters expanding), then yeah, maybe. No reason at all to push it, though they probably want him to build up a few more innings.
2:11
He's at 140-ish ... maybe get him to 160?
Joe, Esq.

What is more scary for Indians fans if they make it into the playoffs, the recent hitting woes or the recent starting pitching woes (outside of Kluber).
Jeffrey Todd
2:11
I wouldn't be worried about any recent woes, honestly. These things can turn on a dime. It's baseball.
Wadena Dave
2:12
What are the chances of the Twins trading Ervin Santana and what would be the type of return to expect?
Jeffrey Todd
2:13
All but nil at that point. He cleared waivers, but they seemingly want too much. Really, that just suggests they want to keep him b/c they don't want to have to commit more years for a replacement when they like the veteran guy they hve.
