2013-11-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Dodgers were aggressive with their full season assignment of Zach Bird. He struggled out of the gate but seemed to get better as the season went along finishing with a couple of pitcher of the week awards in August. Did he take a huge tumble in the prospect world and does he still wear the sleeper tag?
(Jared from Plano)
The prospect world is fickle and prone to quick judgments, so any statistical setback can sour the public on a player. Developmentally speaking, I fully expect to see inconsistency from a young player, and I try to keep that in mind when forming evaluations. Did his stock slip? Probably a little. Is he still a sleeper? Yes, I think is. The process of development operates at different speeds for different players, and with a guy like Bird, you aren't going to see a big step forward until he finds more consistency in his delivery and improved secondary execution. At that point, yes, he can go from sleeper to serious prospect. He isn't there yet, but I think he has the profile to step forward in the next few seasons. (Jason Parks)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Which if any of the following would you throw a sleeper tag on for this year: Burch Smith, Ismael Guillon, Jake DeGrom, Cody Kukuk, Mike Kickham, Asher Wojochowski, Zach Bird? Also, what do you think of Matt Purke for 2013?
(Brian from Boston)
Smith was excellent when I saw him this spring, and I think he's ready t breakout. Bird is another guy that could be ready to take a very big step forward in 2013. (Jason Parks)
