2014-09-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey, Ethan. Appreciate your time. I was wondering what you thought of Victor Reyes and Connor Lien (particularly Lien, as he's less-covered) as far as ceiling/realistic projections and possible comps.
(RetroKryptonite from Oklahoma)
Thanks for stopping by. I wrote up Reyes earlier in the year.

His pure bat-to-ball skills are impressive at the plate, but there's virtually no power in his game at present and it's a left-field profile all the way. It's a tough sell in a corner, but he's eons away and is a projectable kid. He's going to hit all the way up, but the power development will determine his ultimate role.

On Lien, he's got the range to play center field with a 45 arm and is a plus or better runner. I'm not in love with the swing. His hands are stiff/rigid, the bat speed is just okay, and he's got some miss in the zone with a slight bit of length. I put a 4 on him and could see a scenario where he gets a cup of coffee because he has speed and can play center field, but he's realistically a good organizational piece. I'm higher on the other Connor on that squad (Connor Oliver) and think he has a good shot at being a 4th outfielder. (Ethan Purser)
2014-09-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rome (Braves) seemed utterly bereft of talent this year. If you had to choose one player on that team who had the best chance of cracking the majors, who would it be?
(Dan from Raleigh, NC)
You are correct, Rome was pretty barren this season. Johan Camargo started off dreadfully but picked it up as the season progressed and earned a promotion to High-A. I don't think he sticks at shortstop, but he has utility potential if you view him optimistically. The aforementioned Connor Oliver could be a solid 4th outfielder. He has plus speed and can play center field well, and despite a somewhat unconventional swing, he seems to get it done. I like him a little. Tyler Brosius is a good arm who may make it to AAA and pitch some in long relief in a pinch. Brady Feigl is a lefty out of the pen with really good stuff who needs to gain better consistency but absolutely has a shot at as a middle reliever. Not bad for an undrafted arm. (Ethan Purser)
