BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-10-23 14:00:00 (link to chat)Jose Berrios, Tyler Glasnow, Robert Stephenson: three pitchers with different levels of success this year (stat-wise). After what you saw this year, who has the highest/lowest ceiling? Highest/lowest risk of reaching their ceiling?
(ORWahoo from Tigard)
I might change my answer in another month or so, after having more opportunity to dive into each player's minor-league progression and physical development, but off-cuff I would say: Stephenson has the highest floor, Berrios has the highest ceiling, and Glasnow is the guy who will continue to out-produce expectations (Doug Thorburn)
2014-09-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who's the best RHP prospect in the Twins system? Jose Berrios, Kohl Stewart, Alex Meyer or someone else? Thanks Ethan!
(Nils from Minneapolis)
I did not get a look at any Twins affiliates this season, but the reports I've gotten on Berrios have been enormous. The stuff is filthy with a slider that could be a difference maker. Not saying he's the best of the bunch here; again, I didn't get eyes on any of these guys this season. We'll line them up for you this offseason. (Ethan Purser)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Jose Berrios part of the Twins rotation next year?
(Jim from Houston)
even if he was healthy, I don't think that's reasonable (Craig Goldstein)
2014-07-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rank these pitchers: Jose Berrios, Daniel Norris, Marco Gonzales Rank these hitters for their bats: Hunter Dozier, Michael Taylor, Rio Ruiz, Jesse Winker Thanks!
(FantasyFrodo from Washington)
Norris, Berrios, Gonzales. #BullDozier, Winker, Ruiz, Taylor. (Chris Rodriguez)
2014-07-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Keith Law recently tweeted on Jose Berrios: "6' max RHP who doesn't get fastball plane or life and gives up a ton of flyballs." Are those legitimate concerns?
(John from MN)
These are certainly important observations to Berrios' profile, but the reports I've gotten on Berrios have all been positive. Fastball 94-95 T98; plus curve; developing slider and change. He's on our #BPTop50, up quite a few spots from the pre-season Top 101. I haven't seen the player, so all I'm going by is what we've reported this season, but it's a high-upside profile. (Chris Rodriguez)
2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)Reports from Fort Myers have Jose Berrios getting the bump to AA New Britain today. What are you going to be looking for out of him as he makes the jump?
(Tom from MN)
The ability to make his pitch when he needs to make his pitch, and to sequence his arsenal multiple times through better orders. Double-A is always a good test for prospects, both on the mound and in the box. (Jason Parks on the Top 50)
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jose Berrios makes his debut in AA tomorrow. What are your thoughts on him? One other prominent analyst isn't that high on him because of a lack of downward plane, iffy arm action, etc.
(Nick from New Britain CT)
I really like what Berrios brings to the table, and I think some of the perceived warts have been blown out of proportion to date. I haven't had a huge issue with the arm action in the past, though I'm anxious to get another look at him in Double-A. I think he has enough life on his fastball to compensate for any lack of plane, and the fastball will still work as a really strong offering. All told, I think he's one of the better pitching prospects in the game and the larger concerns for me center on him demonstrating his ability to handle the workload over the course of a full season. (Mark Anderson)
2014-07-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jeff, you've been a big supporter of Jose Berrios this year. Law and a few other evaluators think his FB is too flat and that he has trouble repeating his delivery. What's your take on those criticisms of Berrios? Thanks!
(danrnelson from Mpls)
I wonder how much they saw him this season. That may have been the case last year, but I had no concerns about it when I saw him this season. There is some effort in the delivery, but not enough to cause major concern or throw off his mechanics. I though he repeated well enough and he throws strikes. What's the concern? Because of his size, the fastball doesn't have a ton of downward plane, so I understand that, but he gets on top of it well. It's not a huge issue for me, and the change-up keeps hitters honest. It may keep him from becoming an ace because of some home run susceptibility, but he's a solid number 2 for me in the long-run. (Jeff Moore)
2014-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)I think Jose Berrios would rank much higher as a prospect if he went by JO. But as it stands who ranks higher Berrios or Hunter Harvey?
(edwar288 from Minneapolis)
Harvey is going to be higher in the rankings, but as soon as Berrios finishes this year without losing his velocity, he's going to close the gap.

And given the choice, all prospects should go by initials. I'm with you. (Jeff Moore)
2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who's the better of these three prospects: Marco Gonzales, Jesse Winker, and Jose Berrios. Does Gonzales get the edge over Berrios simply because he's more MLB ready?
(FantasyFrodo from Washington)
Berrios has the most upside, but MLB time table comes into play here. I'd go Gonzales, Berrios, Winker. Gonzales' change up is one of the best in all of baseball, and will be an out pitch and bat misser at the big league level. Winker can hit, but I just wasn't blown away by the tools package. He's more of a 1st division guy with a solid average/plus hit tool and 4 other average ones than an impact star. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)How would you rank Aaron Sanchez, Jose Berrios, Lucas Sims, ChiChi Gonzales, & Marco Gonzales as prospects?
(bzalaski from Madison, WI)
Chi Chi, Gonzales, Sanchez, Berrios, Sims. I've been the low man on Sanchez for quite some time. I don't think the command profile ever comes around, and he's never gotten outs past the 5th inning. In fact, he hasn't even thrown 100 innings in a season yet. It's hard to project how someone is going to turn a lineup over when they've never pitched tired. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-06-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)In your opinion which couple of batters and pitchers have seen their stock rise the most this year.
(Willie from Springfield)
I mentioned a few hitters earlier, but I'll touch on some pitchers, I've been extremely impressed with Twins prospect Jose Berrios this season, as have a few of our other guys who have seen him. The reports are extraordinary. He wore down late last season, which is a concern, but also something that happens to a lot of guys in their first full season. It's really the only concern about him right now, so if he makes it through the rest of the season without any major drop in velocity or production, he could really shoot up our rankings, or at least he will if I have any say in the matter. (Jeff Moore)
2013-09-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any pitchers in the minors right now that you can't wait to see preform in the majors for whatever reason?
(Lucas Punkari from Airdrie, Alberta)
My favorite is Jose Berrios. I absolutely loved his delivery when he was drafted, with incredible momentum and the functional strength to handle so much kinetic energy. The burning question is whether the Twins will let him keep the momentum or if they will try to slow him down due to the perception that such power belongs in the bullpen. This is especially critical given his height (listed 6'0") and the aforementioned bias against "shorter" pitchers in a starting role.

The momentum gives Berrios an extended release point that more than makes up for any height deficiencies, and to take away the momentum would be to sap his most effective mechanical weapon - this is actually a common scenario, and in this sense the "short power pitchers belong in the 'pen" paradigm can be a self-fulfilling prophecy. But my eyes saw a strong kid who could definitely develop the foundation necessary to make the most of his physical gifts.

I can't wait to see what he carries with him to the majors, and what (f anything) changes.

On the jukebox: Van Halen, "Panama" (Doug Thorburn)
2013-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jose Berrios, any more information you could give about him? Like how far off from being inthe Top 50, and where he'd rank in a Top 100 mid-season prospect list?
(TheDonCharleone from North Carolina)
He was in the mis for the Top 50. Not a tall kid but strong and athletic. Has a plus FB and two secondary offerings that could get to plus. He's short but very legit and I think he can stick around in a rotation. (Jason Parks on the Midseason Top 50 Prospects)
2012-12-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who where the best players you scouted at instructs this year?
(Lewis from New Haven)
Byron Buxton was at the top of the list. I really like what I saw out of him from a tools stand point. They're loud and the package is there. But, he's a ways away and will need a lot of seasoning.

Manuel Margot, Miguel Sano, Jose Berrios, and Bralin Jackson stood out as well. (Chris Mellen)
