|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.

|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)
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
