DateQuestionAnswer
2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Alberto Tirado is the classic whippy armed short season starter that has control issues....now he has been demoted to short season. How do you view him now?
(Norris from Chicago)
About the same as I looked at him before the season started. The potential is there for a mid rotation starter, or even a tick better. However, he's struggled to locate in the zone at all, and the velocity is down a tick. His mechanics are out of whack, and he's really struggling to repeat. I'm a fan of the demotion; he needs to work on quite a few things. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-05-27 11:30:00 (link to chat)Have you gotten any reports on Alberto Tirado? He seems to be struggling, but after seeing Daniel Norris do the same last year, I'm thinking its just standard growing pains.
(bluejaysplus from Canada)
Not throwing a lot of strikes, let alone quality strikes. FB command is a problem, and the velocity is down a bit. I'm not all that worried, because he's young, but he may be a two year MWL guy. If that's what's best for the development, I'm okay with that. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hi, thanks for taking time out to do the chat. I've got 2 questions for you please: Albero Tirado - what do see as his ceiling, and what do you think he'll settle in as? Justin Verlander - how worried should we be about 5 Ks in 14 IP? Cheers, Daff
(Daff38 from Sheffield, UK)
My pleasure, Daff. I really enjoy these chats - it's one of the perks of the trade.

I wish I could go in-depth on Alberto Tirado, but I haven't seen him pitch yet so I'll have to defer to our awesome prospect team. I'm also not too worried about Verlander - he has the stuff, the delivery, and the track record to feel confident going forward. Small sample caveats aside, if there are still things that he is honing then I trust his ability to make those adjustments, and he can be effective even while at something less than peak form. (Doug Thorburn)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)Hello, good sir! Would you be so kind as to rank the following high upside arms? Jose Martinez, Adalberto Mejia, Lewis Thorpe, Alberto Tirado.
(Gravybill from New York, NY)
My order of preference: Tirado, Martinez, Mejia, Thorpe but all have pluses and minuses. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-03-19 20:00:00 (link to chat)in a deep dynasty any pitching prospects with high ceilings and arent close to the majors? need some names for late
(tno1986 from nyc)
Lewis Thorpe, Alexander Reyes, Jose Martinez, Alberto Tirado. (Bret Sayre)
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Major and minor-league player you think are headed for a breakout.
(Pie from Somewhere)
On the minor league side I think Alberto Tirado will really light it up. In the majors, I think Chris Owings can be really interesting if he wins the job. (Craig Goldstein)
2013-09-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Best under the radar Single A and below players to keep a close eye on...
(Joe Bob from TX)
RHP Alberto Tirado is a good one to keep a close eye on; Jose Rondon with the Angels will most likely jump into their top three prospects; Franklin Barreto really wowed people in the GCL. (Jason Parks)
2013-05-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you could predict the future, where would Alberto Tirado rank in next years top 100? ~75 range?
(Parker from British Columbia)
75 (Jason Parks)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Can Alberto Tirado be a top 101 prospect next year?
(tlheard12 from Canada)
Yes. I think he will. He needs to clean up the delivery, but the stuff already belongs in the 101 discussion. (Jason Parks)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Parks, who are some of your favourite non-top 101 potential risers? (Guys who weren't on the 101 but very well could be, and maybe highly rated, by midseason)
(froston from Peterborough, ON)
Miguel Almonte, Alberto Tirado, Matt Wisler, Andrew Heaney, Rafael DePaula, Joey Gallo, Owens, Snell, Seager (Jason Parks)
2013-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)who's your favorite high upside player not yet in full season ball?
(Pat G from Long Island)
I'm quite high on Alberto Tirado and Miguel Almonte on the pitching front. (Jason Parks)
