2013-03-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on the most recent Donavan Tate news?
(Bryant from Oceanside, CA)
Hey Bryant, yeah, that's a bummer. For those who don't know, Donavan Tate, the third pick overall in 2009, is not in Padres camp due to "personal reasons." Tate owns a career .241/.358/.320 line in about 700 PA spread over three seasons, none above High-A. He isn't quite in Matt Bush territory yet, but he is fast approaching. What a complete disappointment. (Geoff Young)
2012-02-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who strikes you as an OF prospect from previous years who was similar to Starling, in terms of upside & raw skills?
(Sarah from Cleveland)
Donavan Tate. (Kevin Goldstein)
