2014-08-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)CJ, would appreciate your thoughts on two White Sox prospects, Tim Anderson and Micah Johnson. What do you see for their ultimate roles / ceilings, etc. Thanks!
(ChiSoxFan from Chi Town)
I didn't see Micah Johnson personally but I know he can really run and hit a little bit. Tim Anderson was electric for me. He hits out in front and has premium bat speed. The K numbers were a result of him struggling during an adjustment period and being extremely raw. I think he will end up in CF where his speed will be utilized and his bat will be more than enough for the position. Anderson has plus raw power and the hit tool for it to play. I think he's the total package. (CJ Wittmann)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who has the better career, Marcus Semien or Micah Johnson?
(hamsterjockey from DC)
Blech. Real baseball? I guess, Semien. Fantasy baseball? Johnson. The steals will help him carry some value. Just wish he could hit. (J.P. Breen)
2014-04-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)RJ, the Southsiders have Micah Johnson and Northsiders have Arismendy Alcantara. Any thoughts on ETA and expected production/ceiling?
(Chi-Town Keystones from Sweet Home Chicago)
Both could be up this year. Alcantara is the better prospect, as he's got the chance to be a legit first-division starter. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)When do you foresee Micah Johnson's MLB debut?
(Phil Packer from Pizza Parlor)
2015 guy for me. Not a big fan of the profile. Utility guy (Craig Goldstein)
2014-03-14 09:00:00 (link to chat)What's the chance that Micah Johnson hits and defends well enough to become a regular so that he can become fantasy relevant with his speed?
(Gary from New Jersey)
30-40%. He'll be relevant in mono formats if he makes the Majors, but I'm thinking more Elliot Johnson/Chris Getz here than a guy who sticks long term as a starter. Those batting averages as he has moved up the chain don't inspire confidence. (Mike Gianella)
2013-08-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Micah Johnson seems to get no love, despite his 80+ SB and .300+BA since promotion to high-A. Can he be an impact player in the show?
(tsweber from Reno, NV)
Long way from that. A lot of the good work came at A-ball as 22. (Paul Sporer)
