|2011-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Several David Perez questions. He's already a towering behemoth as an 18 year old (6'5" 200). Any chance he gets even bigger as he gets older? If so, what do you think his fastball velocity gets to (also, where did he usually sit last season)?|
(MonkeyEpoxy from Texas)
|I think Perez will start to fill-out his frame over the next few years; he will end up a very large man. I think his arm action and delivery will allow him to tick up a bit in the velo dept, reaching a sustainable 93-96 with the ability to touch in the 97-98. He was 89-93 last season and touched higher (94-96) when he maxed it out. (Jason Parks)|

(Mike from TX)
|Nope. Luis Heredia is a better prospect, at least right now. If Perez continues to take steps forward, he could make it interesting. Heredia has a chance to be an elite level prospect, but its going to take time. Lots of time. (Jason Parks)|
|2011-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)||I'm about to hyperventilate with excitement over David Perez. Should I restrain myself or just roll with it?|
(James Decker from Stamford, Texas)
|You should restrain yourself. There is a memorable line from "Pulp Fiction" delivered by the Wolf about getting ahead of yourself. I'd take that advice to heart. (Jason Parks)|
