BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-09-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Looking at BP 101 SP available in my 16-team dynasty: Folty (RP?), Almonte, Stewart, Harvey, E. Rodriguez, Barnes, Chi Chi, Berrios, Tirado, Kingham, Enny Romero, Pierce Johnson, Thorpe. Daniel Norris is also available. I've focused on MLB this year; any of these guys (or guys not on the 101) decent risers this year? Struggling to merge them onto my draft board with the MLB SP like deGrom, Carrasco, Shoemaker, Roark, Keuchel, McHugh, Anderson, Fiers, etc. available. Any names jump out from this motley crew, MILB or MLB, as draft targets? If it matters, I finished 3rd and pick 14 of 16 so prefer near ETAs. Here's hoping #TINO shows no #slack this fall/winter. Thanks.
(JoJo from SD)
Take the MLBers. The order you have is good, too. TINO will be around all winter, but on an abbreviated schedule (twice a month) (Craig Goldstein)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any of these guys going to wind up more than back-end fodder? Sean Nolin, Robbie Erlin, Jimmy Nelson, Alex Wood, Oberholtzer, Holmberg, Taylor Jordan, Maurer, Enny Romero, Alex Colome.
(TheKernel from Pasadena)
Don't sleep on Enny Romero. I think there is a better chance of him providing impact in the bullpen, but I've been working on the Rays system lately and scouts really like this kid's stuff; I've seen it several times myself, so I can definitely appreciate a mid-90s FB and hard breaking ball from a southpaw. The command concerns, but if he can develop into an effectively wild type, he has the stuff to pitch above the middle-of-a-rotation. Projection is #2/3 type, but I think a late-innings arm is the realistic role. (Jason Parks)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Between Alex Colome, Jake Odorizzi, and Enny Romero who has the best chance to make the ML rotation this year?
(Reed from OKC)
Odorizzi, but in terms of ceiling, I'd take both Romero and Colome. (Jason Parks)
2013-09-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Enny Romero's MLB debut?
(Chad from OKC)
Obviously there was some good fortune involved when you're not throwing strikes like that, but that's what you're going to get with him. I'm mostly scouting the stat line, admittedly, since I've never seen him live and hadn't seen him at all in the minors, but he's going to walk a lot of guys. Was impressed with the arm and the velocity. Not sure there's a future at that walk rate. (Zachary Levine)
2013-08-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the upside of Enny Romero? Does he have frontline potential? Thanks for the great chat!
(bkobs from Massachusetts)
Now pinch-hitting (again), Mark Anderson: "The raw stuff -- big fastball, hard curveball, some feel for a changeup -- is there for Romero to have frontline potential. He struggles so much with his delivery and the strike zone that it's hard to actually make that projection. I think he's more of a frustrating starter with great stuff and inconsistent results, or he could excel in the late innings as a reliever."

Normally I would just skip these questions or defer to our prospect people, since this isn't my specialty. All of our prospect writers are available to take questions via email and Twitter, by the way. You can find Mark @ProspectMark, and you can bulk follow everyone at BP by subscribing to our staff list at twitter.com/baseballpro/lists/baseballprostaff. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Enny Romero #1 or #2 SP?! Or average SP
(The minor league guy from Illinois)
I'm thinking more of a late-inning reliever (Jason Parks)
2013-03-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Always enjoy your discussions of pitching. Thanks. Taijuan Walker and Enny Romero: two young starters with good (great?) arms and problems with all the C's: control, curve, consistency. Who has a better chance of reaching his potential and why?
(CyMature from just a little outside)
I think that Walker's upside is ridiculous. His size, strength, stuff, and mechanics are way ahead of the standard age curve. He struggles to repeat his delivery, with a ways to go before realizing his potential, but timing and consistency is typically the last thing to come around for a young pitcher. His baseline mechanics are incredibly advanced, and he appears to have the frame to handle heavy workloads when he matures. So yeah, give me Walker in that scenario.

Arizona settling for Prado/Delgado instead of the Mariners package could turn out to be the biggest plot twist of the off-season. (Doug Thorburn)
2011-12-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Did Enny Romero make any adjustments this year that you think improve his odds of reaching his ceiling?
(benharris from Denver)
Most players fail to reach their ceilings, but I think Romero took a developmental step forward; he logged innings and he missed bats. The command needs work, but he's getting better and the future (even if he doesn't reach ultimate ceiling) is very bright. (Jason Parks)
2011-04-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Enny Romero has had two good starts to begin the year. Is he the type of guy who could shoot up the prospect rankings this year?
(Nils from Stamford)
Absolutely he could. Long lefty with plus power stuff and rare control for his age. Will move up, and also a shot at exploding (in a good way). (Kevin Goldstein)
