BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-05-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ryan Tucker. Any insight on his blowout start in terms of pitch development progress? Any other general thoughts on him would be appreciated.
(Freddie Blassie from Helena, MT)
What you are looking at is much improved command and some improvements on the breaking ball. He always had the best arm strength amongst that group of young arms in the system and I think what you are seeing is very real. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-05-05 12:30:00 (link to chat)Ryan Tucker has been nearly unhittable this year with his mid-high 90s heater. Most scouts project him as a closer for the Marlins due to a lack of secondary offerings, but do you think he can succeed in the rotation?
(Jonathan from FLA)
I'm a long-term believer in Tucker -- I can't remember when he was a breakout prospect of mine, but he absolutely once was. The fastball has been fantastic this year, and I've actually heard about consistency in the breaking ball category. I know he uses a splitter and a slider, so if he can make both of those a plus, there's no reason to relegate him to the bullpen yet. (Bryan Smith)
