DateQuestionAnswer
2016-05-18 19:00:00 (link to chat)Jason Parks was very high on Pedro Fernandez a couple of years ago and he now seems to be coming around. Thoughts on him ?
(Ernie from Midland, TX)
Hey Ernie! Parks is the man, but yea what's really encouraging about Fernandez is that the strikeouts appear to be back up and he's made some progress cutting back his walk rates. Only 22 I'm excited to see how he does after just getting promoted to Double-A. (George Bissell)
2015-05-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)Have you either seen or heard any news on two KC prospects Cody Reed and Pedro Fernandez ?
(Adam from St Louis, MO)
Cody Reed. Getting him again and finalizing what I think. (CJ Wittmann)
2014-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Other than Manaea, do you see any other under the radar pitchers who look like they could make a big jump in the rankings next year?
(Asking For a Friend from Chicago)
On the Royals? Pedro Fernandez. He will be one to watch in the next few years. Could be electric. (Jason Parks)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)Any thoughts on Pedro Fernandez (KC) and how good can he be ?
(Jimmy from St. Louis)
I don't know enough right now. Parks says he's a guy to watch, so I'll be paying close attention going forward (Craig Goldstein)
