(Nick from Illinois)
|This is actually a pretty apt comparison. I'll take Lake, though. (Jordan Gorosh)|
|2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)||Will Steven Moya's hit tool allow him to become anything more than a power bench bat?|
(Nils from CT)
|Highly unlikely (Jason Parks on the Top 50)|
|2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Why are you so down on Steven Moya?|
(Hank from Detroit)
|I don't think anyone has ever accused me of being down on Moya. During the debates on the Tigers Top 10 entering this season, I advocated for him to be rated higher than he ultimately was. I also currently believe Moya is in the midst of making a pretty big jump as a prospect. The approach is still rough, but he's doing some things that demonstrate some learning and an understanding of what he needs to do. His approach will never be good, but I am seeing enough improvement that the hit tool could play to .250, and even with the swing and miss, that may allow enough of his immense raw power to play for him to be a regular. I'm probably the high man on Moya on the BP Prospect Team, and my view of him is that his likely role projects out to a solid regular in LF/RF. If that means I'm down on him, then I'm really "down" on a lot of prospects. (Mark Anderson)|

(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)|

(BaseballDaddy from your old room)
|I think Suarez is pretty close. He's a pretty underrated talent. With the position of SS so down in the majors (it's awesome in the minors of course), a .250/.330/.370 type guy with average defense at a premium position is not a common commodity. Romine, short of the last few games, and Worth have been absolutely abysmal at the plate, and not that great in the field. I think they're going to want to see how he does for ~100 or so AB before deciding if they need to make a move. This all hinges on Iglesias' health, of course.
In terms of Moya, I'm probably the low man on him. He has no barrel control, a long swing, and not much approach. The power is definitely real, but I don't know if it ever plays to utility. I'd keep him in AA for as long as I could. He seems like the type of guy who may figure it out at some point, but I'd wager it's closer to his age 28 season than his age 24. (Jordan Gorosh)
|2013-09-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Let's say Chicago or Detroit called saying they want my players and are willing to offer prospects. Who should I ask for? Both farm systems I think stink. |
(Kevin from Houston )
|Considering you can't yet ask for this year's draft picks, the pickings are going to be pretty slim. From Detroit, the obvious answer is Nick Castellanos, but you could also be intrigued by players like Endrys Briceno, Drew VerHagen, Brian McCann, and Steven Moya. From the White Sox you can look at Courtney Hawkins, despite what Mortimer says, and I still believe in Trayce Thompson a little bit. (Mark Anderson)|
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
