(justarobert from Santa Clara)
|It's funny you ask. These two guys were probably the most overrated pitchers I've seen this season. I was going in expecting two impact arms, but didn't see it. Reyes has command issues, and there's certainly a chance he ends up in the pen.
Kaminsky, I actually saw earlier this week. He was mostly high 80's. Could reach back for a bit more when he needed it and could certainly pitch, but the FB was flatter than I thought. The CB was good, not great. Didn't get many swings and misses. I was shocked to see his numbers, because the stuff doesn't fit the results. He's a #4 type.
I'd rather have Kaminsky because there's a better chance he's a big league starter, but they're in fairly close proximity. (Jordan Gorosh)

(scott from az)
|I saw Alex Reyes so I'm biased that way. He's got a lot of refining to do still but at 19 he has a big fastball and a hammer with a developing change. I might be in love with him. (Mauricio Rubio)|
|2014-05-27 11:30:00 (link to chat)||New guy, eh? Welcome! We know the Prof goes ga ga over the high ceiling youngsters who are sushi-grade raw. So what would you say your personal bias(es) are regarding prospects? |
(Howie from NYC)
|I think that's something that we all like. Ceiling talent is impact talent. You want guys who can impact the major leagues, and in a big way. The idea is to produce talent that you're not able to get on the open market.
In terms of my personal biases, I'm privy to lefties with pitchability. Someone like Andrew Heaney, for instance, because he's got an excellent shot of getting outs at the big league level, and for a long time. I also find myself attracted to guys like Rob Kaminsky, who have a legit plus, plus pitch, and feel for the mound. Even though he isn't a big guy, last I checked, you don't get extra points for being tall.
In terms of hitters, I like hit/power guys more than speed. Speed often overrates a prospect, and even though the adage 'you can't teach speed' is certainly true, it's easier to find on the open market than someone who can legitimately hit the baseball. (Jordan Gorosh)
|2014-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Marco Gonzales or Rob Kaminsky long term?|
(johnorpheus from St. Louis)
|I'll take the plus-plus CH every time. I'm a sucker for a high-end changeup. Give me Gonzales despite the weaker FB (Jason Parks)|
|2014-02-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)||Last year the Cardinals LHP looked barren. This year they had Kevin Siegrist and drafted Marco Gonzales and Rob Kaminsky and had Tim Cooney take a step forward. What gives?|
(Bubba from St. Louis)
|They felt like having a farm system with no weaknesses, I suppose. This is what they do. (Ronit Shah)|
