BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-08-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are your personal top 5 favorite prospects to follow as a fan?
(Kim from NYC)
Oh gosh, I'm not enough of a prospect guy for this. Willie Calhoun. Logan Shore. Franklin Barreto. Brent Honeywell. Nick Senzel. (Matthew Trueblood)
2017-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Should the Braves see any advantage in promoting Ronald Acuna to Atlanta in September? It seems he's ML-ready as a 19yo. Similar question for Nick Senzel and the Reds?
(ironcityguys from home)
More from the redoubtable Jarrett Seidler: "Well, he's only 24. And he's from my neck of the woods, so maybe I'm biased, but no, I don't think he's lost. Rockies pitchers are...well, you know. He'd allowed only three homers in 42 1/3 innings through the end of June, and that wasn't going to last, and he's been really lit up (game score < 40) in only five games. My biggest concern: 25 K%, 7 BB% through 6/30, 13% and 10% since. He's in the zone a lot--his 52.9% Zone rate is 11th among 142 pitchers with at least 1,200 pitches--but his 26.8% O-Swing rate (i.e., chase rate) is 115th. That suggests to me that he's not fooling anybody with his stuff outside the zone, hence the reduction in Ks and the rise of BBs. Given that four of his bad starts have come in his last six games, might it be fatigue? He pitched 104 MiLB innings in 2015, and 150, mostly in AAA, in 2016. He's at 135 2/3 so far this year. He seems a candidate for a move to the bullpen or a 10-day BS "arm fatigue" DL stint to see if he can recuperate and recapture something. He's not ace material, but he should be better than he's been lately."

Dudes, you're killing me with the prospects questions. "Rob, did Juan Gonzalez deserve any of his MVPs, and if not, who should've won those years?" "No, and A-Rod both years, arguably Griffey in '96 and either Jeter (who got screwed out of two other MVPs) or Garciaparra in '98." Thank you. (Rob Mains)
2017-03-23 20:00:00 (link to chat)Who are the top 5 prospects in 2018? Who are the top 5 prospects in 2019?
(Cubs Fan 69 from Illinois)
The correct answer is I have no idea. But this is fun. Let's say 2018: Victor Robles, Eloy Jimenez, Brendan Rodgers, Gleyber Torres, and Nick Senzel. 2019: Robles, Anderson Espinoza, Acuna, Michael Kopech, and Anderson Tejada. (Mark Barry)
2017-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Bret Sayre ranked Nick Senzel, Corey Ray, Zach Collins, Jason Groome, & Mickey Moniak as his Top 5 Dynasty Signees from 2016. Do you agree with this, or have a different viewpoint?
(Ron from Texarkana)
I think I prefer Lewis to Moniak, but totally reasonable to prefer Moniak until there's more clarity on how Lewis looks now. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-02-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)How high should Kevin Maitan be drafted in first year player drafts? I have the 3rd overall pick, with Nick Senzel sure to go #1. Would I be crazy to take Maitan over Kyle Lewis and/or Corey Ray? Neither of those guys look like fantasy superstars, but it sounds like Maitan at least has that potential.
(David from Rochester, NY)
You would be crazy. I'd rather have Ray then Lewis. You should check out Bret Sayre's Top 50 2016 signee list that came out here at BP last month. (George Bissell)
2016-12-01 19:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on what type of player/hitter Nick Senzel becomes and how fast do you expect him through the minors?
(Cubbie Bear from Chi-Town)
I think he'll be...Senzationel... (sorry)

I agree with what my colleague Jeffrey Paternostro said in an earlier chat. The ceiling isn't tremendous but I see a solid hitter with a good batting average and more gap power than over-the-fence power. He could/should move pretty fast if he keeps hitting. A mid-2018 promotion is the best case if everything goes right, but 2019 is more realistic. (Mike Gianella)
2016-12-01 19:00:00 (link to chat)What sort of player/ hitter do you expect Nick Senzel to become? What is his anticipated timeline getting to the majors?
(Cubbie Bear from Chi-Town)
I think I answered this question already. Bad pun surrounding the word sensational, decent hitter with high floor but not a ton of HR power, 2019 realistic timetable. (Mike Gianella)
2016-12-01 19:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the Chat, Mike! I have the #1 pick in a dynasty league and I'm trying to decide between Nick Senzel and Kyle Lewis. Scoring system is points based and roughly mirrors linear weights. Putting aside my team's position needs, do you have a strong feeling either way on Lewis vs Senzel?
(jgaztambide from Washington, DC)
I'd lean Senzel, but I don't have a strong feeling either way. (Mike Gianella)
2017-01-18 20:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of comp would you have for Nick Senzel?
(Harry from Roanoke)
Statistically, how about Anthony Rendon? (Bret Sayre)
2016-10-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)How legit are Nick Senzel's fantasy prospects in the next two or three years? Thinking of drafting him in my dynasty league.
(Calvin from Bronx)
Adam just filed on him this morning (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=30517). He should move fast and there is some safety in the bat. You can probably find higher upside offensive profiles, but Senzel would be one of the higher floor ones I'd imagine. Third base feels really deep right now, but that could obviously look different in 2019 or whenever. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Dayton had a terrible season overall, but in the second half they had Nick Senzel leading the team to give the fans some sort of bright spot. Was he the best prospect that came through the league?
(Frank The Tank from The Quad)
I think Eloy Jimenez was the best prospect, but there are several players that would be up for consideration (Espinoza, Diaz, Alvarez), but Senzel would definitely be in the conversation. Fortunately the MWL had some really top tier talent. (Midwest League Wrap Up)
2016-08-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)How would rank this years June draftees and international signees for fantasy purposes? Say top 15 or so?
(Snowborne from Pittsburgh)
I'm not a big fantasy guy so I don't know about 15 but a few guys that are going to be ready sooner rather than later are Nick Senzel, Zack Collins, and Burdi. (James Fisher)
2016-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)If Eloy Jiminez isn't my favorite prospect, who should be?
(Wesley from Citadel)
Sicnarf Loopstock, who is:
-actually a real person, yes
-from Aruba
-drafted from Western Oklahoma State College
-actually a real person, yes

The analysis is what you come here for, right? http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?sid=t481&player_id=643419#/career/R/hitting/2016/ALL

To seriously answer your question, if you have a favorite low-minors prospect Eloy wouldn't be a bad call. You could be a wise guy and say Josh Naylor is your favorite low minors prospect too, wise guy. Otherwise, I'd probably chance that it would be pretty cool if you appreciated the floor+ceiling of some more polished 2016 Draftees like Blake Rutherford (Appy League) or Nick Senzel (Midwest League). (Adam McInturff)
