BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-11-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know he's not the sexiest prospect, but does Stefen Romero's hot AFL and the possibility of playing time in the outfield make him a potential sleeper?
(David from Seattle)
No. I don't see a major league regular. He's a 4 for me. (Jason Parks)
2013-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)More likely to make an impact this year, Stefen Romero or Carlos Sanchez?
(Biscuits from SJSU)
Hi Biscuits (SJSU). Again, I'm not a prospect guy, but Romero is a 24-year-old in A-ball, which isn't exciting. There are two people named Carlos Sanchez currently playing in the minors. Assuming you mean the White Sox middle infielder, he's a 21-year-old in Triple-A with a good defensive reputation. I'll go with Sanchez. (Geoff Young)
