2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)Which Diamondbacks SS would you rather have: Sergio Alcantara or Andrew Velazquez? I'm guessing Alcantara, but Velazquez did just tie Betts' on-base streak.
(Steve from Arizona)
Alcantara. (Jason Parks on the Top 50)
2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any thoughts on Diamondbacks prospect Andrew Velazquez? Looks like he's had a great season. I know he's repeating a level, but he's still young for the league. The speed profile really stands out between the stolen bases and the triples.
(Steve from Phoenix)
He's not a burner, but is quick. I have plus times on him. I like the profile as a 2nd division SS or utility guy. He's a grinder, and his approach is advanced for a kid his age. He doesn't give away at bats, and plays the game hard. I wouldn't bet against him reaching the big leagues in some capacity, even though the profile isn't ultra sexy. (Jordan Gorosh)
