DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)Was Kevin Plawecki close to making the list? What is his ceiling?
(jsull11 from LIC, NY)
He was, actually. Legit role 5 catcher with good glove and stick (Jason Parks on the Top 50)
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)How would you rank Kevin Plawecki, Blake Swihart, Jorge Alfaro, and Kyle Schwarber offensively? Also, Who on that list should be starting by this time next season? Cheers
(Jim from Kansas)
In terms of ceiling, I think Alfaro has the highest overall offensive ceiling of that group, followed by Schwarber, Swihart and Plawecki. That said, Alfaro also comes with arguably the greatest risk in his offensive profile, so that has to be taken into account as well. I'm a pretty big believer in Alfaro, so I tend to think even if he doesn't reach his ceiling, he is still going to be an impactful offensive player.

I'm not sure any of these four guys are good bets to be starting in the Major Leagues by this time next year. Swihart and Plawecki would be the most likely bets, but I wouldn't put money on either one at this point in time. (Mark Anderson)
2014-07-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Name an prospect from the Futures game that was not in the spotlight who could end up being an All Star?
(Kyle from DC)
I was watching the game on my phone in an airport (isn't technology wonderful?) so I'm not super aware of who was getting all of the spotlight, but I like Kevin Plawecki, and J.P. Crawford as guys who didn't seem to be getting a ton of attention. If you haven't noticed, I like guys with good strikeout to walk ratios. (Jeff Moore)
2014-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)What would you say is Kevin Plawecki's upside? Does he have the potential to be better than what scouts thought (well, and still think) d'Arnaud can be?
(raymond from queens)
Most scouts are pretty surprised at the extent of d'Arnaud's struggles in the majors, both in their severity and duration, so who knows what his upside is at this point. Plawecki's is certainly comparable, however, and it's a nice luxury that the Mets have another strong catching prospect waiting in the wings in case their first one doesn't pan out. I haven't seen Plawecki in person because I didn't see St. Lucie last year, but if you've read my work you know I'm a sucker for prospects with a good K:BB ratio. (Jeff Moore)
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Kevin Plawecki - does he have a shot at the majors this year? and how do you project his impact at the big league level? Thanks!
(Matt from Whippleville, NY)
I like Plawecki OK. He's an offense first catcher but I don't think he reaches the majors this year and I like D'Arnaud a lot, so I'm not sure what he is in the long term. He's more of a time-share catcher to me in the majors, unless he answers some of the questions on his defense. I'd say 2015 is a better bet for his arrival. (Craig Goldstein)
