DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Mark, where do you see the ETA for Diamondback hurlers Braden Shipley and Aaron Blair? Also, are the mid rotation to back end guys or a chance for more?
(Brett from New Jersey)
Shipley is showing the stuff and enough polish to move very quickly through the system and could reach the big leagues late next year, though 2016 is more likely. Blair is squarely in the 2016 time frame for me. Shipley has a much higher ceiling and be a #2 if he can put it all together; Blair has the type of ceiling you noted. (Mark Anderson)
2014-06-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Higher upside - Henry Owens or Braden Shipley? See either one making an ace level leap anytime soon?
(John from LA)
Braden Shipley, whom I could be seeing next week, has the higher upside by far. (Ron Shah)
2014-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any word on Braden Shipley? Heard he has biceps tendonitis. Is that serious? TJ? I see him as a solid #2 to Archie. What do you think?
(tsweber from Reno)
Big fan of Shipley. Dig the stuff and the delivery - he stays back a little bit more than I would like, but the balance+posture are excellent. Tendinitis can be a bit of a wild card, as we don't know the root of the inflammation, and biceps tendinitis can have implications for elbow and shoulder. The D'Backs will be wise to stay cautious in order to avoid the risk of cascade injury (detecting a theme in this chat), and with careful management the minor setback will just be a speed bump in his development. I am not too concerned, so I think that we can back off the TJ ledge.

On the jukebox: Warren G, "Regulators" (Doug Thorburn)
2014-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat. In your opinion, which hitter and pitcher, outside of the top 50, have the highest ceilings?
(cracker73 from Florida )
Alex Reyes, Jose Martinez, Braden Shipley, and Hunter Harvey on the pitching side; Nick Williams, Raimel Tapia, and David Dahl on the positional side of the ball. (Jason Parks)
2014-01-17 10:00:00 (link to chat)Name game time! Outside of the top 50 prospects, give me 2 pitchers and 2 hitters you think are going to be well within the top 50 by this time next year!
(vegetto712 from Florida)
David Dahl and Josh Bell with the stick; Alex Reyes and Braden Shipley with the arm (Jason Parks)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of a ceiling do you see for Braden Shipley? Could he be a role 6/#2 starter?
(Mark from Arizona)
That may be his ultimate ceiling, but he's probably more of a High-5, #3 starter, which is still really good. (Mark Anderson)
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Top 5 dynasty prospects from this past draft?
(John from My basement)
Off the top of my head: Bryant, Frazier, Gray, Stewart, Appel. The fifth one was tough for me. I also really like JP Crawford, Braden Shipley, Hunter Harvey and Reese McGuire. The first four I'm a little more confident on. (Craig Goldstein)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)More promising potential: Braden Shipley or Hunter Harvey?
(Alex from Denver)
I'd take Harvey's ceiling, but also high on Shipley. (Jason Parks)
2013-10-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which prospect will breakout next year?
(Cards from St. Louis)
Braden Shipley; Hunter Harvey; Edwin Diaz; Chi Chi Gonzalez

Just to name a few (Jason Parks)
