BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-08-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Chris Flexen kind of a big deal or not really yet?
(Bill from LA)
Not so big that I could give you any insight on him myself, but I'd say the same for just about any 18-year-old in the Appy League. I just asked Mark Anderson, a member of our Prospect Staff, and here's what he said:

"I'm not sure I'd call him a big deal but he's a legitimate prospect. I've had reports of him reaching 94-95 a few times and sitting in the low-90s with some effort to the delivery. He's a big kid that doesn't have a ton of physical projection left, but he's also really young. I think it's a bullpen profile, but a profile that could be interesting in a couple of years."

My chats always get more interesting when I let other people pinch-hit. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Anything on Chris Flexen and Robert Whalen? Do they bring the heat like Harvey/Wheeler/Syndergaard?
(Sean from NY)
They may be ok, but can we really get to talk about how good Harvey/Syndergaard/Wheeler trio is going to be? (Zach Mortimer)
2013-07-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Have you seen Chris Flexen and what are scouts saying about him?
(Frank from Canoga Park)
Honestly that's the first time I can remember seeing is name. (Harry Pavlidis)
