BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ever see Oscar Hernandez in person? Was that one summer league an aberration or is there potential to be a high level catcher down the line?
(Steve from New York )
I saw Hernandez at least ten games last season. I really like his long term potential and believe he can be an everyday catcher down the line. He's been quite good for a 20-year old in the Midwest League. (Mark Anderson)
2014-02-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)So with Tampa Bay trading away Jose Lobaton where does that leave them in terms of overall catching depth?
(Pete from Orlando )
They have Hanigan and Molina in the majors. After that they have a few generic minor-league backstops (Roman Ali Solis and Eddy Rodriguez) and a younger, potential backup catcher type in Curt Casali to round out the upper-minors. Deeper in the system they actually have some interesting prospects: Nick Ciuffo, David Rodriguez, and Oscar Hernandez. So they aren't necessarily great at the top levels, but as an organization they're okay. It's not like they could've kept Lobaton anyway. (R.J. Anderson)
