BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2017 Due to publishing agreements, the 2017 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2017 book (available in hardcopy, and soon e-book and Kindle).
2015 For Beeler to reach his fourth starter ceiling in the big leagues, he's going to have to avoid ball four and induce groundballs. Lacking a true swing-and-miss offering, Beeler works low in the zone, hoping to induce weak contact with his sinker or splitter and relying on his defense to get the job done. His 2013 was cut short by a finger injury, but he did enough in the Arizona Fall League to make the Cubs' 40-man roster and eventually have a brief trial in the majors. Beeler did half of what he was supposed to do in that limited sample, inducing grounders but not limiting walks, leaving him one trick short of a touring act. One wonders whether Beeler's parents really had his best interests in mind when they named him "Dallas" despite living in Oklahoma.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-10-23 14:00:00 (link to chat)Out of the copious amounts of #4 and #5 pitchers the Cubs have, who do you expect to start next year? (Felix Doubront, Kyle Hendricks, Wada if he resigns, Jacob Turner, Edwin Jackson, Dallas Beeler, Dan Strailey, Travis Wood)
(Pelecos from Granville)
It's a very interesting conundrum for the Cubs, and the buzz indicates that they will look to sign a front-line SP over the winter. I'm an Edwin apologist, but I think that he has run out of excuses. I think that T.Wood and K. Hendricks will both be a part of the rotation, and Doubront will either pitch his way to the bullpen or earn a spot in the rotation. I would give Beeler more time on the farm, and Turner could be a reliever in the end. Straily is the wild card.

On the jukebox: Thrice, "The Melting Point of Wax" (Doug Thorburn)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)What were your thoughts on Dallas Beeler's start on Saturday? Do you think he plays into the Cubs rotation after the deadline, more so than a guy like Kyle Hendricks?
(Matt from DC)
I think he earned another look. I know Bosio loves Hendricks but I definitely think Beeler earned at least one more start at Wrigley with his performance. (Mauricio Rubio)
