BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which prospects are at the top end of the scale when it comes to locating their pitches?
(Gary from Irvine, CA)
The guys that came up the most during our off-season Top Tools (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=22959) discussion were Kyle Hendriks, Dylan Bundy, Ty Blach, Justin Nicolino, Rafael Montero, Marucs Stroman, and Noah Syndergaard. (Mark Anderson)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Ty Blach a guy who projects as future plus command at the big league level, or just a minor league strike thrower?
(rmunter from Washington DC)
I do think he has plus command projection once he rounds into form at the highest level. That said, I'm not a huge fan and think he's more of a 4/5 starter in the end. (Mark Anderson)
