BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-09-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on the Greenville pitchers, especially Trey Ball and Teddy Stankiewicz?
(Eric V. from Greenville)
I missed Ball but heard underwhelming reports. I wrote up Stankiewicz in a Ten Pack.

http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=23831

I liked him a little, but he fit more of a #5/swingman type role for me. (Ethan Purser)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat! Who has the greatest ceiling and what is their future rotation spot - Lucas Sims, Trey Ball, Kohl Stewart, Jeff Hoffman, and Hunter Harvey.
(Nicta from Peoria AZ)
I think Kohl Stewart and Hunter Harvey have the biggest ceilings here. Kohl has a very athletic delivery/body and I dig his profile. I would probably put him over Harvey. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)This is a theological question. Do you believe in Trey Ball? Not Baal. Does this make the previous tall, skinny lefty savior, Henry Owens, into John The Baptist?
(CyMature from Cabin (Fever))
I don't believe in Beatles I just believe in me. Yoko and me. (Jason Parks)
2013-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Bonus chatting is the best chatting! Thanks Mark. Is Trey Ball's upside well below the tier of top arms you've cited above, or is he dinged more for high risk/lack of experience?
(Ed from Seattle)
I assume you're referencing the Red Sox pitching prospects I mentioned, and if that's the case, he's not included in that group because he is light years behind those guys in terms of development, while they are on the radar for next summer. That said, I think Ball has a ton of potential but I need to see him make adjustments to pro hitters and work through a long season. (Mark Anderson)
2013-11-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Being a redsox fan! I thought bosox should have taken Austin Meadows instead of Trey Ball! Thoughts?!
(The minor league guy from Illinois)
I liked Ball. Improved reports on Meadows at the complex league, but still dubious about long term outlook. He looks the part, but I had a lot of viewings throughout the twelve months leading up to the draft and he regularly underwhelmed. Certainly wouldn't pay the $500K or so extra it would have cost to land Meadows at same slot. Too bad they couldn't entice Ryan Boldt away from Nebraska... (Nick J. Faleris)
2013-10-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you had a preference, would you have Trey Ball on the mound or in the field?
(Biscuits from Cali)
Mound (Jason Parks)
