DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of ML players will Christian Walker and Chance Sisco be?
(nottes from work)
Walker - I view him as a 50 OFP, 45 Realistic

First base only type, not athletic, 4.50+ home to first times, lacks much range at first. Bat speed is a tick above average and he has always shown a good approach and hit tool. The power is deceiving, as most of the HR's at Bowie were off org guys chucking 88-92 mph meatballs to the plate. I was low on Walker, but he has at least shown me this year that he can potentially play second division baseball in the bigs, but I highly doubt this is an impact bat.

Full Chance Sisco report here:

2014-08-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Christian Walker the Orioles 2016 first baseman?
(Bilbo from Brooklyn)
No he is not.

Call it a hunch, but Chris Davis will be their first basemen. (Tucker Blair)
2014-07-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Bat only... what are the upsides of guys like Preston Tucker, Kennys Vargas, Christian Walker, and Dan Vogelbach? I know a couple may profile as DH types, but what kind of ceilings are we looking at?
(MP from Bluegrass State)
At least Tucker can play the OF. For guys at low positions on the defensive spectrum, they really have to hit. Most of these guys should be good for 20-25 homers, but at 1B or LF, that alone doesn't get you much past second-division regular territory. They also have to hit closer to .300 and show strong on base skills, which may or may not happen. (Jeff Moore)
