BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-09-08 19:00:00 (link to chat)Which Braves pitching prospect has the ace/#2 potential based on strikeout pitches?
(Harry from Lancaster, PA)
I've been extremely encouraged with what I've seen of Ian Anderson, who the team selected just a few months ago in the top five. However, I'm going with 19-year-old southpaw Kolby Allard. He's struck out greater than a batter per inning at Single-A Rome this season while posting a 3.73 ERA in just over 60 innings. It blows my mind that 13 teams passed on him in the 2015 draft. (George Bissell)
2016-09-12 23:00:00 (link to chat)I'll just toss some names at you who I find very interesting heading into 2017: Frank Kilome, Kolby Allard, Erick Fedde and Mitch Keller. They're all available in my deep fantasy league, should I just get nutty and grab them all!? Thanks, I enjoy these chats!
(Jmax from Niagara, Ontario)
Yeah, that's a pretty good short list of emergent pitching prospects this year. Kilome was dreadful in a few cold April starts, but has been just delightful since. Power fastball, his. Allard scares me more than most on account of the back issues, but he looked like the dictionary definition of projectable when I saw him in high school, and David Lee's report last week was optimistic about the stuff if not the health. And speaking of the medical ward, if Fedde's healthy he's a higher floor option with a nice, straight path to the middle of a rotation. Pittsburgh's for-them-aggressive promotion of Keller late in the season should tell you how high they are on him. If you've got the roster space or all those dudes then yeah, do it up, though if there are similar bats on the wire too, I'd lean in that direction.

2016-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any mets prospects you like more than the average guy?
(Gary from NJ)
Kingsport:
-Chris Viall--XXL (6'9'') power arm from Stanford, has a lot of stuff, we'll see if anything can click control/command/consistency-wise.
-Jake Simon--LHP was the team's 11th-rounder in 2015, over-slot prep southpaw from Texas. Striking out hitters and keeping a ton of balls on the ground over a solid showing for Kingsport every fifth day.

Brooklyn: Pete Alonso, Blake Tiberi both college performers who fit that Harrison Bader type of player (talked about earlier) where they'll have to perform at every level...but also have the chance to be the types of grinders who just go out and do that.

Definitely will give Thomas Szapucki his own little bit here, though. There are a few more I could mention, but he really impressed when he was in the Appy League and he got promoted. High school lefty in 2015 in the first 10 rounds from a Florida high school. Really tough angle on hitters with an arm-slot that's death for lefties, especially. Gets good run on a fastball that touched 96 most every start (sitting 92-94) with some feel for a slider. It isn't an Anderson Espinoza type of low-level minors pitching prospect where you're really pushing a teenage pitcher way up your minor league prospect board, but Szapucki has been the type of guy you see in the Appy League who has a lot of big league ingredients, and you take note of that.

Good year for Appy League lefties overall. Kolby Allard was there, now Joey Wentz is, and there's Resly Linares for Princeton (Rays) as well as Szapucki, obviously. (Adam McInturff)
2016-03-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)When the Braves are back competing for the NL East, who will be their best player?
(Eddie from Macon)
Swanson, I guess? If you're really feeling yourself and you think the rebuild's going to take a while, you could go with Kolby Allard but I think they'll be back to .500 before he's fully developed. (Michael Baumann)
2016-03-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give me your overall thoughts on the hitters in the Braves system? I obviously love the pitching, but I'm nervous about any future hitters besides Dansby and Albies.
(Alex from Georgia)
Really respect the guys running the show and the scouting department there in Atlanta. They understand that especially in the NL, pitching wins you games.

There's a reason they're targeting a 'college bat'--so they say--in this year's draft. It makes sense. The system is VERY pitching heavy, though I agree, Dansby is a damn stud.

There just isn't even a ton of guys to talk about here in terms of their hitters. Austin Riley had a great debut, but they strayed so far from where others had him (a pitcher), you have to say to yourself 'I want to see this in a full-season league, and over time.'

That said, I really trust their scouts. I trust the guys pulling the trigger, and it wouldn't shock me if we were all wrong about Riley and they were right. He's certainly hit and hit and hit to date.

That said, yes, they definitely need to add offense--and it wouldn't shock me to see them go as 'bat heavy' as they were 'pitching heavy' last year.

Can I get a Kolby Allard, though? Love that kid. Hope he stays healthy. (Adam McInturff)
2016-03-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)Which prospect pitcher do you like the most long term and why? Brady Aiken, Dillon Tate, Kolby Allard, or Carson Fulmer. Thanks.
(fightingmoose from MB, Canada)
I like the ceiling on Tate. Dude can dial it up and if the secondaries are there for him, I could see him being dominant. They all have a shot of being very good though. (Mike Gianella)
2016-03-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)Could you rank these pitchers for fantasy dynasty purposes. Jeff Hoffman, Brady Aiken, Dillon Tate, Aderson Espinoza, Francis Martes, Carson Fulmer, and Kolby Allard? Thanks.
(cracker73 from Florida)
Tate, Hoffman, Espinoza, Fullmer, Martes, Aiken, Allard (Mike Gianella)
2016-03-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)I need 1 more player for my fantasy minor league team. The choice is a SP prospect (Kolby Allard, Amir Garrett, Josh Hader, Grant Holmes, Yadier Alvarez or Dylan Cease), position player (Dominic Smith or Trent Clark) or lottery ticket (Willie Calhoun). Which SP and position player would you choose and also your overall pick, taking into account not only ceiling/floor but also proximity to the bigs (the closer the better).
(paladin from philippines)
I really like a bunch of those dudes. Calhoun can be a special hitter, but he's a butcher defensively and loses value if (when) he moves to the OF. Allard and Garrett are two really high-upside arms, and Alvarez could turn into any pitcher you can think of (good or bad). I probably go Clark there, but you've got options depending on what you're into. (Wilson Karaman)
2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)Does Kolby Allard have true ace potential? Thanks for taking my questions
(Jt from Medina)
Yes, but the size and health (back injuries man...) could stand in the way. Still, love the talent, even if he's a long ways away. (George Bissell)
