BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hunter Dozier struggling in AA after strong results earlier. Just a bump in the road for him/adjusting? An everyday 3B for you?
(Steven from Oh me oh oh my oh oh Cleveland Ohio)
It was an aggressive move to put him there, so an adjustment period shouldn't be surprising. I still believe. 2nd division regular for me, with the possibility of a few role 55 years in there. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-07-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rank these pitchers: Jose Berrios, Daniel Norris, Marco Gonzales Rank these hitters for their bats: Hunter Dozier, Michael Taylor, Rio Ruiz, Jesse Winker Thanks!
(FantasyFrodo from Washington)
Norris, Berrios, Gonzales. #BullDozier, Winker, Ruiz, Taylor. (Chris Rodriguez)
2014-07-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hunter Dozier starting 3b for KC next year?
(scott from az)
2016. (Chris Rodriguez)
2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)Another prominent baseball opinion had Hunter Dozier going from unranked this offseason to #39 on their update today. BP didn't include him. How close was he to the Top 50?
(Kurt from Milwaukee)
We've put a lot of eyes on Dozier this season, starting in camp and extending into the season. We have a very good handle on this player, and while we all certainly love his overall game, the reality is probably more of a role 5 (regular) than a huge impact talent with a higher upside. (Jason Parks on the Top 50)
2014-07-09 15:00:00 (link to chat)I had thought that Hunter Dozier was listed as a potential 6/6 in his last eye witness account. Does this mean that Nick Williams and Dozier have similar hit/power tools? What are your thoughts on Dozier?
(oakiegu007 from NY)
They do grade wise but get there in very... extremely.. titanically different ways. Williams is speed and Dozier is strength. Dozier's ceiling is a bit lower but much safer floor.

If everyone played baseball the way Dozier does there would be world peace. Look for the spring training notes on him. I. Love. #Bulldozier. (Ryan Parker)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)12-team dynasty, 6x6 (with BB for batters, K/BB for P) 7 player MiLB rosters: I have a couple fringier MiLB players right now (Winker, Berrios) and wondering if any of these avail. guys would be better adds: Hunter Dozier, Raimel Tapia (still don't quite get the hype but I'm not a scout), Michael Taylor, Daniel Norris, Josh Bell. Thanks!
(NorDub from PNW)
Definitely Tapia, Daniel Norris is worth a look. Winker and Berrios are good though, I'd probably wait and assess after next monday when the BP top 50 comes out. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Hunter Dozier our savior at the black hole known as 3B in KC? When and what can we expect from him? Thanks...
(KCHomer from KCK)
Our mid-atlantic guys who have seen Dozier a bunch this year really like him. He just got promoted to Double-A so that puts him on the doorstep, though he won't be up this year. Next summer could be possible though. (Jeff Moore)
2014-06-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Jeff: thanks for your frequent updates on prospects. When 2014 is over, what players do you anticipate will have made the biggest jump up the ranks of prospects?
(howling wolf from Bethesda MD)
Joey Gallo has to be among the leaders in the clubhouse for that honor. He was near the bottom of our Top 101 before the season because of the questions about his ability to make contact against better pitching. Heís answered them with a vengeance. Any time a prospect makes great improvement at his biggest weakness, itís significant.

Other candidates include Raimel Tapia, David Dahl, and Hunter Dozier. (Jeff Moore)
2014-06-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is the ETA on Hunter Dozier? Do you think he is going to be an above average 3B option for the Royals?
(Dave from Scranton)
Two of our guys have filed reports on him. Both believe he can be an everyday third baseman and have his ETA at 2016. (Jeff Moore)
2014-05-27 11:30:00 (link to chat)Hunter Dozier's stats look ordinary until you look at the splits and see he's raking away from Frawley Stadium. Is that enough to earn him a promotion this summer? What are your thoughts on Dozier?
(Bill from Bozeman)
I wouldn't pay too close of attention to the stats, especially in that park. Dozier is a gamer. He comes to play every day, has plenty of #want, and can hit. He'll do fine at 3B, and the scouting reports are far superior to the stats. He absolutely loves to play the game every day, which is underratedly important. He's going to work at his craft, and continue to hone it. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-05-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)Two 3B prospects that seem to be hitting well: Hunter Dozier and Mitch Nay. What's your thoughts on them? High ceilings?
(Karl from San Angelo)
I'm a bigger fan of Dozier as he's the better hitter. Nay has a little more power, but his minor league numbers overstate his fantasy potential and I'm not sure how much of that power is usable. Dozier's ceiling is a high-average, decent power third baseman. Those are in pretty high demand these days. (Bret Sayre)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)Has Hunter Dozier displayed enough to be deserving of his higher draft position and does this affect your outlook on him?
(Victor from Dumfries)
He's legit. At the time, it seemed like quite the reach, even after they were able to pop Manaea. But after watching him a ton in camp, and talking to teams that drafted soon after the Royals did, Dozier wasn't going to last very long in that draft. He has more industry fans that I initially realized. (Jason Parks)
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Between Hunter Dozier and Mitch Nay, who has the higher ceiling and who has the higher floor? Also, what position do you see each most likely to settle into?
(digiderek from Nevada)
Based on what I know, I'd lean toward Dozier on both. He seems more likely to stick on the left side of the infield, presumably at third base, which takes pressure off his bat. I don't know where Nay lands defensively. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hunter Dozier or Christian Arroyo?
(Kyle from Seattle)
Dozier (Jason Parks)
