2014-11-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on Tyler Kolek? The scouting report is rather obvious: Big body, more thrower than pitcher, elite veto, secondaries lag. What do you see him becoming?
(Dave from Phoenix)
That's a pretty fair assessment, though I think his slider deserves a bit more credit. There's a huge range of possible outcomes for him. If he stays healthy and maintains the power to his arsenal he has at least a bullpen floor given the plus-plus fastball and future plus slider. Obviously the Marlins hope they can develop him into something more. (Todd Gold)
2014-11-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Perhaps, due to high expectations, it seems like people are a little down on Tyler Kolek. What are your thoughts on him heading into his first full season of pro ball?
(Jason from CA)
It's just human nature to place such high expectations on a player taken so high and given that much money, so I understand how people can be down on Kolek. It was well known when he was selected that this wouldn't be a pitcher rolling through the minors and throwing darts against the Nationals in two years. Kolek is the big-time flamethrower that a club hopes to mold into a SP. He's got a ways to go still, but I don't think we have seen enough to paint a vivid picture of what his future looks like. The risk is high, that's for sure, but the reward could be huge. (Tucker Blair)
2014-12-11 18:00:00 (link to chat)There seems to be a 50/50 split when it comes to Tyler Kolek. What's your take on him?
(Shaun from Orlando)
I'm not sure I've seen a true split on Kolek. He's a potential high impact arm with tons of growth required, and I think that's a pretty universal opinion. I think the raw ingredients are there to make him a top of the rotation starter, and fans will just need to be patient as he develops. (Mark Anderson)
2014-12-11 18:00:00 (link to chat)I've heard reports of Tyler Kolek only sitting between 91-94 on his FB in the GCL. I thought this kid was supposed to be hitting triple digits on the gun. Do you think this is a precursor to a major injury? Have you heard anything about the velocity drop? How concerned are you and what would you attribute this to?
(Andrew from KC)
I certainly have reports of him in that range during some GCL outings, but I wouldn't call that the norm. He noticeably dialed it back in some starts to throw more consistent quality strikes, but the peak velo was still in the tank. I have minimal reservations about his long-term velocity, and if I were to be concerned, I would spend more time worrying about his overall crudeness and extreme risk profile. (Mark Anderson)
2014-10-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tyler Kolek or Aaron Nola
(Scott from AZ)
Aaron Nola. Give me the guy that is close to the majors and has a mid-rotation ceiling that is easy to envision him obtaining it. Kolek is a good talent, but that's a long way from forming. (Tucker Blair)
2014-10-23 14:00:00 (link to chat)Ok I will start throwing so pitchers at you then. Besides Carlos Rodon, which pithers do you like best coming out of the 2014 draft?
(Scott from AZ)
I really like Tyler Kolek, who has awesome power and very strong stability. Touki Toussaint also has a good balance of power/stability in his delivery, though he lacks the power ceiling of Kolek in his delivery, but Toussaint has a very efficient path of kinetic energy. Brandon Finnegan is another high-power guy, and I always appreciate a young pitcher with strong momentum, while holding out hope that his organization let's him keep it.

2014-09-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)What is Tyler Kolek? I know he throws hard, but what is he supposed to be, Chapman? Verlander? A burn out?
(Sven from Ft. Lauderdale)
He is not a sandwich. Glad we got that out of the way. He's supposed to be Tyler Kolek. A giant #texan top of the rotation starter who chew through 200+ innings at a high level, with a high 90s FB. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-08-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)I'm a velo whore, so guys like Tyler Kolek make it move for me. I probably would have taken him 1-1 this year (I also really really like big framed Texan gunslinger SP's- I swear I am not related to Parks). What's the scoop on Kolek?
(Donald Loria from Milwaukee)
Huge fastball. Everything else needs work. Long developmental path but he throws 100. So he throws 100. (CJ Wittmann)
