|2016-04-25 23:00:00 (link to chat)||Any chance you can hit us with some knowledge on some Low Minor prospects from the Rangers system in Ronald Guzman, Travis Demeritte, & Jairo Beras? What about from the Brewers in Monte Harrison & Isan Diaz? |
(David from Atlantis)
|Sure! I filed a report on Guzman last summer, you can find that here: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_bat.php?reportid=263
Wasn't a fan. Would it shock me if he turned into a good hitter with moderate power? No. He was really searching for it when I saw him though. Some pleasant elements to his swing, but I didn't love his physicality and he showed no ability to hold himself together when he tried to turn on balls.
Demeritte I just saw and submitted some notes on, those'll be up this week in one of our "Notes From the Field" pieces. Beras was injured during my first look at High Desert, so have to wait on him.
I haven't seen either Diaz or Harrison in person. Was bummed the former got shipped out last winter like 146 other would've-been-great-to-watch-at-Visalia prospects. James Fisher wrote about him last week, you can find that here: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=28975 (Wilson Karaman)
|2016-03-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)||How do you like Isan Diaz? Potential t100 guy? |
(Jackson from New Jersey)
|Absolutely. I'm very high on Diaz. In my mind, he will be a top 100 guy if and when he just shows his toolset at a higher level of the minors.
I'm not at all comparing his statistical outputs to Roughned Odor, but I'll say this: When I see a left-handed-hitting second baseman who has a strong hit tool, more thump than you're expecting from more strength in his lower-half and more batspeed than I generally see in this body type/positional profile, and a high-energy style of play? I do see some Odor similarities, if only in his toolset and the 'style' of player that he is.
Again, to be clear, I am not saying Isan Diaz is exactly Roogie.
However, that should show you what I think of him, and how high I am on his performance in the Pioneer League last year-not to mention my looks at him in Spring Training this year. The guy has a natural feel to hit that you just can't teach. He hits, and hits, and hits some more. Some Brewers personnel have him penciled in sticking at shortstop, but I'm fairly convicted he's manning the keystone. I'm undeterred, however. (Adam McInturff)
|2016-03-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Yo Wilson, got 3 prospects that I don't know much about in Isan Diaz, Desmond Lindsay, & Wilkerman Garcia. Any chance you know more about them then what I know?|
(Leonard from None of Your Business)
|Diaz can really hit, but I wouldn't go *too* nuts scouting his stat line in the high-octane Pioneer League, particularly re: the steals. Wrote him up here: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=28307
Lindsay cracked Bret's top 30 of 2015 signees. Higher real-world value, but can be a quicker mover & a decent floor type. Notes: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=28307
Garcia is a high helium alert, with the chance to bust onto a bunch of lists by this time next year after jumping stateside and holding his own at 17 last year. Notes: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=28428 (Wilson Karaman)
|2016-02-03 20:00:00 (link to chat)||Do you think Isan Diaz is a year away from becoming a Victor Robles type hype skyrocketing up the charts?|
(Viktor from Baltimore)
|In fantasy, maybe. He's not nearly the defender Robles is, so I can't see him making the kind of jump Robles did on "real life" lists. (Greg Wellemeyer)|
|2015-09-30 19:00:00 (link to chat)||I'm asking this question everywhere I can, but can't get a real read on the player. Isan Diaz. Is the breakout this year for real, or something fueled by the hitter friendly Pioneer League? What type of player are we looking at here?|
(James from Scottsdale)
|This is a player I hope to get a serious and extended look at next year as he should hopefully be in Kane. There's one word that keeps popping up when it comes to Diaz: bat speed. Al Skorupa had his thoughts on Diaz in his chat a few weeks ago and it echos a sentiment that Diaz has the barrel control and bat speed to believe in the offensive outburst he's posted in 2015. Diaz has some defensive chops but it's likely he slots over from short to second base in the long run. Overall that's definitely a dude to keep your eyes on. (Mauricio Rubio)|
|2015-09-30 19:00:00 (link to chat)||I've been hanging on to my last $1 forever in my dynasty league. Here are a few guys who have risen up my list. Looking for most upside here. Who should I spend my $1 on? Domingo Acevedo,Jordan Patterson,Kevin Padlo,Wilson Contreras,Harold Ramirez,Johan Mieses,Chad Pinder,Isan Diaz,Willy Garcia,Yairo Munoz|
(TheDave from AR)
|I'd throw that dollar on Isan Diaz, Wilson Contreras and Yairo Munoz in that order. (Mauricio Rubio)|
|2015-09-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Hey Al, thanks for the chat! Isan Diaz has had a marvelous season for the D-backs, showing more power than we anticipated and he's still playing short. Ultimately, does he move to second and do you think his power is something that will carry on going forward?|
(jwise224 from DTLA)
|Saw Isan on the backfields this Spring and a few times over last couple years. I think he's a 2B. Just doesn't have the footspeed or actions for shortstop, but he improved enough where I had to stop and think about it... so maybe some team could play him there. I just wouldn't. He doesn't run like a shortstop and I don't think it will get any better as he reaches mid 20's. I'm not shocked at all by his power. There aren't many guys who create the kind of bat speed Isan does. The Robbie Cano comp has been thrown out there a billion times, but he really does have that swing and look. I didn't expect Isan to hit so well this early, but I was mostly concerned with an overly patient approach at the plate. He put together some timid at bats for me against atrocious high school pitching and that always concerns me. You don't need to be showing scouts you're looking for a pitch in a certain quadrant when you're facing a terrible high school pitcher who can't throw a strike and is sitting 70mph. Overall I think the guy is a league average type 2B starter. (Al Skorupa)|
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
