|2015-03-25 19:00:00 (link to chat)||Buck Farmer. Do you think that he will remain a starter long term? I've watched him this spring and the fastball has been consistently around 95+, however, I've read a few reports saying the he lacks a true out pitch. Im no scout but the command also seems a little fringy. Is he better off in short stints from the bullpen where he stuff might perhaps play up a tick?|
(Zack from Detroit)
|I think he can be a swing man or 7th inning bullpen guy depending on the team's needs. He has good enough stuff to get people out second and time through the order, but the FB is somewhat flat. I think the CH is a 5+ pitch, so it could get guys out, but it's probably a role 4-4.5 type guy either way. (Jordan Gorosh)|

(ColeWhittier from Pasadena, CA)
|Farmer is a swingman or 5th starter for me. I don't see much more than that, and there's a distinct chance that he fits better as a reliever as a result of suspect command and consistency. He can mix his arsenal and is a strong kid that can handle a robust workload, but the package just doesn't stack up in a rotation for me. I'm very skeptical of his ultimate future. (Mark Anderson)|
