DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)if you had to try to pick one lottery ticket....Francisco Mejia, Ricardo Sanchez, Luiz Gohara, Jose Martinez, Franchy Cordero or Rafael Devers? Sanchez looks good but there can be some many variables from then till now, or can he take the Urias track?
(Fred from Still here)
Sanchez isn't going to be on the Urias track. he's not nearly polished enough to make those kinds of moves over the next year.

Of that group, I'd hang my hat on Devers as the one lottery ticket to pay off. He could be a complete beast. (Mark Anderson)
2014-07-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Mr. Moore - thanks as always for the time! I was hoping you'd share your thoughts on an odd troika of prospects. Victor Reyes, Franchy Cordero, and Kennys Vargas - ceilings, likelihood of reaching them, and ETA?
(dtothew from Atlanta )
I love odd troikas! Here’s Ethan Purser’s report on Reyes.: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_bat.php?reportid=100 Not a lot of standout tools so the hit tool will have to carry him. High risk guy but a good prospect. Franchy struggled with the adjustment to stateside ball early in the season but is now in short-season ball where he belongs. Disregard the struggles in Fort Wayne to start the season. He shouldn’t have been there. Kennys Vargas is big and fun to watch, as you saw yesterday in the Future’s Game. Here’s Chris Mellen’s report on him: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_bat.php?reportid=125He’s a big time power guy that’ll need it because he’s stuck at first base. (Jeff Moore)
2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any updates on Franchy Cordero out of Eugene? He seems to be playing a little better in the first week.
(padremurph from Los Angeles)
Franchy has a gorgeous swing, but unfortunately, the approach left quite a bit to be desired. To be fair, he was overmatched in the MWL. He'll try again next year, and the talent is certainly there for him to succeed. He's really raw, and it was an aggressive assignment. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-05-29 19:30:00 (link to chat)Hey Ben, what would your order be of these prospects you would want in a Dynasty League? Alexander Reyes, Hunter Harvey,Francisco Mejia, Franchy Cordero, Ryan McMahon?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
Hmm, let's go Harvey, McMahon, Reyes, Cordero, Mejia. Is this Craig? These are all guys who Craig loves. (Ben Carsley)
2014-05-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Bret, what would your order be of these prospects you would want in a Dynasty League? Alexander Reyes, Hunter Harvey,Francisco Mejia, Franchy Cordero, Ryan McMahon?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
I'd go Harvey, McMahon, Reyes, Cordero, Mejia. (Bret Sayre)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)Professor Parks, what would your order be of these prospects if you had them in your farm? Alexander Reyes, Hunter Harvey,Francisco Mejia, Franchy Cordero, Ryan McMahon?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
Harvey, Reyes, Mejia, McMahon, Cordero (Jason Parks)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)Can you tell me anything about Franmil Reyes? Big and young in the Midwest League and holding his own.
(Chris from Phoenix)
I wasn't on Franmil Reyes during camp. I thought he looked 28 years-old instead of 18. Huge kid. Hulking frame. Normally I would be all over this profile, but I don't think he will hit. Of course, he's hitting very well at the full season level, and the player that I found to be dramatically superior (Franchy Cordero) was pressing and failed in his first pass at the same level. (Jason Parks)
2014-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Saw your glowing review of Franchy Cordero this morning. Do you have a guess on his big league ETA? Thanks!
(Gravybill from New York, NY)
He's not close. Love the swing and the power potential, but he's still very raw in the field. Considering the fact that his professional experience is limited to the complex level, I think 2017 is a realistic ETA. (Jason Parks)
2014-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know you saw Padres camp, because I know you had the chance to drool over Franchy Cordero. Did you get to see Joe Ross? How did he look, and do you think he'll be better than his brother?
(birdzfan52 from Baltimore)
Ross can be quite a tease, showing you easy plus (to plus-plus) velocity and a sharp slider that can miss bats. The problem is that I was drunk on the Kool-Aid last season and the pitcher I saw in camp didn't fully translate to the regular season, so I'm both optimistic based on his spring badassness yet skeptical because he likes to show a little leg in the club but it doesn't go beyond that. (Jason Parks)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)Are there any position players off of top 100 lists that you like to take a huge step forward in 2014? Franchy Cordero seems like an obvious name, for sure. Anyone else jump out to you?
(kfazio from WV)
I threw out one in Ervin before, but this is exactly what I wrote about for the Futures Guide - something I'm really proud to be a part of. There's a ton of great content, both prospect and fantasy wise, in it. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)How would you rank Frenchy?
(Vic from Dumfries)
Assuming you mean Franchy Cordero, I'm a big fan. Saw him take an at-bat in spring training and while that's not much to go on, the reports are positive. I recently ranked him aggressively in Ben and my introductory Dynasty Dynamics column, which should give you some idea. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)Most future fantasy value (please rank): Tim Anderson, Raimel Tapia, Francisco Mejia, Stephen Piscotty, Franchy Cordero, Hunter Renfroe
(McClane from Nakatomi Plaza)
Tapia, Mejia, Piscotty, Cordero, Anderson, Renfroe but that's not the order I'd draft them in (Craig Goldstein)
2014-01-17 10:00:00 (link to chat)You mentioned Franchy Cordero as a guy you really liked and you had him as an On-The-Rise guy in the Padres system. How does he profile defensively? Is he going to outgrow SS or does he have the tools to stay there?
(Liam from Dallas)
Likely to outgrow shortstop, but the bat profiles well at third. He could really develop legit game power down the line. (Jason Parks)
2013-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any hitting prospects of note for the Padres who isn't named Hedges or Liriano?
(Art from San Diego)
Hunter Renfroe. The group of hitters down in the AZL this year was very strong. The Padres don't have a lot of potential impact offensive talent in their system, but that AZL group of Franchy Cordero, Franmil Reyes, Peterson, Jose Urena, etc. was solid. I'm iffy on a couple of those guys but really liked Franchy Cordero. (Jason Cole)
