BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-05-15 17:00:00 (link to chat)What's the feasibility of using Rockies starting pitchers in an NL-only league this year?
(CountryHardBall from Field of Dreams)
The talent is there but the venue is still such a grind for all of them. Tyler Anderson looked like such an exciting play and he's been cut even in NL-only leagues. Freeland and Senzatela are almost auto-starts in NL-only and the rest of the rotation are at least matchup plays. (Mike Gianella)
2017-01-31 19:00:00 (link to chat)I'm a rebuilder in my 24 team dynasty team and need to start getting some close to to ready MLB SP. What are some SP prospects I could get in return for Chatwood and Tyler Anderson ? I have Stephenson,Gonsalves,Fedde,Keller,Jay,Quantrill,Jordan Montgomery,Dakota Hudson,Lauer and Norge, Thanks
(NatiRedlegs1990 from Ohio)
I sort of love Tyler Anderson and have been grabbing him everywhere I can. I don't know how it happened.

It looks like you have a lot of good options and lottery tickets in the system already. I don't know if you could get top-tier guys that are close to ready with Chatwood or Anderson by themselves, but you could probably pair them with a prospect or two for an upgrade. (Mark Barry)
2016-10-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Tyler Anderson had a pretty nice season, can you tell us more about him and can we expect him to continue to pitch this well?
(Adolph Coors from Golden, CO)
He was healthy. And maybe the Rockies finally have their fastball/cutter/change guy that can survive in Coors Field altitude? It's always tough to bet on that profile working long term without more Ks, but it is always tough to bet on any profile in that organization. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-06-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)What team is the worst at developing pitchers? The Indians system has a lot of hype, but the pitchers they have taken in the top 90 since 2002 have combined for only 3.2 WAR in an Indians uniform (excluding the 6.1 WAR they got from trading Pomeranz/White for Ubaldo). The list is depressing: Jeremy Guthrie, Brian Solcum, Adam Miller, Jeremy Sowers, Justin Hoyman, Scott Lewis, David Huff, Steven Wright (traded for Lars Anderson), Trey Haley, Alex White, Drew Pomeranz, Dillon Howard, Mitch Brown, Dace Kime...are you as depressed as I am yet? No? How about the fact only Sowers and Huff had at least 1 career WAR for the Indians, making them probably the 2nd or 3rd best in a group of 14 picks.
(Truganini from CO)
I wouldn't say there are specific teams that you know are bad at developing pitchers but there are some concerns. Seeems like Baltimore has had some recent bad luck with Dylan Bundy, Hunter Harvey, and Kevin Gausman just to name a few. Obviously Colorado has had its own troubles with Tyler Anderson, Tyler Matzek, Mike Nikorak (at least right now), Drew Pomeranz, Christian Friedrich, and Peter Tago. -SG (Live Draft Chat)
2016-06-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)Do the Rockies still have a reputation of only drafting a certain... "type" of player or has that not been true for a while?
(Infrancoeurgible from Down and Away )
I could argue in 2015 that they were in the drivers seat, they were going to be happy with whichever SS they got.

Before that they've tried polished college arms (Christian Friedrich, Eddie Butler, Tyler Anderson, Jon Gray), projectable HS arms (Peter Tago, Tyler Matzek, Ryan Castellani, Ryan Warner) with more misses than hits. So I don't think they have a reputation of drafting just certain types of players. -Steve Givarz (Live Draft Chat)
2015-12-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Tyler Anderson and Alex Balog have seen their star fade. Any chance they get into the Rox rotation in 2016? And what is the realistic impact they make long term with the Rockies?
(Truganini from CO)
I could see Balog getting there, maybe not in 2016 but at some point. Very much a backend starter profile, and stuff has regressed since he was in college. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Rockies are dead last in QS with only 36 in 106 GP. The only pitchers who have given them a 50% or better shot at a quality start are Chad Bettis (8/13 - hurt) and Chris Rusin (7/12 - free agent). Jon Gray looks like Eddie Butler 2.0. Other recent top picks Kyle Freeland and Tyler Anderson can't stay healthy. Please give me some reason to hope that the Rockies pitching won't be as terrible next season.
(matzabal from Denver)
Man, I dunno if I can do that. I wouldn't be so quick to give up on Gray just yet (or Butler, for that matter). Even with diminished stuff since his college days I think Gray can still be a solid enough Major League starter, at least in a neutral context. Butler's shoulder issues seem uncomfortably Bedardian, and I think they have contributed a good bit to his stalled development. Always going to be awfully tough for them to lure FA hurlers there, and their best arm in the minors right now is either a recently drafted high schooler or Antonio Senzatela, who's 20 with a very good fastball but lagging secondaries. (Wilson Karaman)
2015-02-12 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is Tyler Anderson's stuff good enough to stick in a decent MLB rotation? (If he can ever stay healthy)
(Ryan from Colorado)
Despite the lack of flash on the fastball, I think he's got the control and deception (and changeup) to make it to the bottom end of a rotation, if, as you say, he can stay healthy. It's likely, though, that he ends up in a bullpen due to concerns about his durability. (Kate Morrison)
2015-01-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)In a very deep dynasty (about 800 minors are rostered), can you rank the following: Matt Smoral, Franmil Reyes, Tyler Anderson, Max Kepler, Micker Adolfo and Zach Borenstein. Sorry for the gross question and I'll be your best friend if you answer it.
(AC from Dallas, America)
We gotta stop doing this, America.

Anderson, Micker, Smoral, Reyes, Borenstein and then Kepler.

This was gross. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-06-05 14:00:00 (link to chat)Seriously, the Rockies since 2008 have drafted in the first round Rex Brothers, Christian Friedrich, Tyler Anderson and now Kyle Freeland. All Collee LHP, is this a theme of taking these low-ceiling players?
(Wesley from Utah)
I wouldn't call Freeland low-ceiling. Has legit plus stuff and fills up the zone with it. Good performance arm with the scouting card to back it up.

Have to step away for about 20 mins on a couple of calls. Be back... (Draft Day Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
