2016-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tito Polo is showing a lot more pop this season. He's got a HR in consecutive games for Bradenton. What are your thoughts on his development?
(Steve from Pittsburgh)
He was a really interesting player to get to see at West Virginia. Polo raked for the Power, albeit with a toolset and frame that are going to keep scouts more suspect until he shows that it clicks at higher levels.

He's very muscular and has real power for a shorter player. The way his game power has emerged this year is a reflection of raw power that's there, with more contact ability this year than last. That said, he's really a left field frame, was already old for the level even if he wasn't repeating it, and...he was repeating the level.

I see him as a raw power RHH corner type of bat who has that bench bat or maybe platoon look to me...I would keep that ceiling in mind, a guy who could get there on the strength of what he can do, but might have some 'cant's' that could get in his way of everyday play in Pittsburgh. Then factor in how deep the Pirates OF already is, and the presence of Austin Meadows, and maybe a Harold Ramirez.

Makes you even just throw out there in a "pie in the sky" type of way if for all the reasons above, he's a good second or third prospect chip in a larger deal...Pittsburgh trying to sell high on him as a complementary player in a deal, if that route is the one they so choose. (Adam McInturff)
2016-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Marte/Polanco unlikely to go anywhere and CF is covered either by McCutch or Meadows. Seems like Harold Ramirez is trade bait, but is he a starting LF for another team or a bench bat?
(Greg from VA Beach)
Good question from a good state in this land. I'm kind of on the fence about Harold Ramirez as an everyday guy, or if he is, it's the kind of corner OF where he's got to hit for a dominant batting average. There just isn't a ton of homerun power in there, though he does put a charge into it. There's just not a ton of leverage or lift in the swing, and not a lot of demonstrated game power, either. Let's say best case for Ramirez is an everyday LF for a second-division club, with the chance to be a quality situational or bench contributor for a team if short of that ML impact.

I do think OF prospects like Harold Ramirez and Tito Polo make for interesting 'sell high' trade candidates for all the reasons we mentioned here. (Adam McInturff)
