|2014-07-24 19:00:00 (link to chat)||What do you think of Kennys Vargas from a fantasy baseball standpoint? Do you think he can be a .275 average, .350 on-base, 20 homerun guy?|
(Kyle from Tuscon)
|I think that's very heavy on average, I think of him as more of a .250 guy with 25 HR potential. He's a roto play in my mind if he can realize some of his potential, but I'm generally not to excited about 1B prospects. (Mauricio Rubio)|
|2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)||What is a realistic comp for Eddie Rosario? Did his suspension take him out of consideration?|
(fsumagic from Houston)
|I just saw Rosario in game action and I wasn't all that impressed. He has bat speed and has an approach but I don't love the bat control or some of the swing decisions he makes. From LF, its a tough profile and I'm not sold the power is really going to show up.
But on that squad, I really like Kennys Vargas. That kid has 70 raw and I think some of it will come out to play. Legit power profile from both sides of the plate. (Jason Parks on the Top 50)
|2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)||Rank these prospects in a dynasty: Rosell Herrera, Nick Williams, Blake Swihart, Daniel Norris, Trevor Story, Alen Hanson, Philip Ervin, Kennys Vargas, Steven Mats.|
(Tim from NJ)
|Nick Williams, Trevor Story, Daniel Norris and Blake Swihart are the big four of that group. I think everyone kinda rounds out the backend. (Mauricio Rubio)|
|2014-07-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Mr. Moore - thanks as always for the time! I was hoping you'd share your thoughts on an odd troika of prospects. Victor Reyes, Franchy Cordero, and Kennys Vargas - ceilings, likelihood of reaching them, and ETA?|
(dtothew from Atlanta )
|I love odd troikas! Here’s Ethan Purser’s report on Reyes.: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_bat.php?reportid=100 Not a lot of standout tools so the hit tool will have to carry him. High risk guy but a good prospect. Franchy struggled with the adjustment to stateside ball early in the season but is now in short-season ball where he belongs. Disregard the struggles in Fort Wayne to start the season. He shouldn’t have been there. Kennys Vargas is big and fun to watch, as you saw yesterday in the Future’s Game. Here’s Chris Mellen’s report on him: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_bat.php?reportid=125He’s a big time power guy that’ll need it because he’s stuck at first base.

|2014-07-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Bat only... what are the upsides of guys like Preston Tucker, Kennys Vargas, Christian Walker, and Dan Vogelbach? I know a couple may profile as DH types, but what kind of ceilings are we looking at?|
(MP from Bluegrass State)
|At least Tucker can play the OF. For guys at low positions on the defensive spectrum, they really have to hit. Most of these guys should be good for 20-25 homers, but at 1B or LF, that alone doesn't get you much past second-division regular territory. They also have to hit closer to .300 and show strong on base skills, which may or may not happen. (Jeff Moore)|
|2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Can Kennys Vargas be a big league regular, or is he another data point with Calvin Pickering, Kyle Blanks and Walter Young against Very Large Men?|
(Mario66 from Pittsburgh)
|I'd wager against Vargas working out, but you didn't include Steven Moya (worlds largest human) and Juan Duran. Very upsetting. (Jordan Gorosh)|
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
