DateQuestionAnswer
2015-01-20 19:30:00 (link to chat)Hey Ben, who do have as some of your favorite "to keep an eye on" prospects for 2015?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
This is all over the place, but some guys who's values could fluctuate wildly from a fantasy POV for me are: Trey Ball, Chelsor Cuthbert, Casey Kelly, Tyler Austin, Tyrell Jenkins, Colin Moran, Kyle Crick, Matt Olson, Kyle Zimmer, Rymer Liriano, Gary Sanchez and Alen Hanson. All over the place, I know, but I feel like a lot of those guys are gonna go one of two ways. (Ben Carsley)
2013-09-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)What Yankee prospect is most likely to make an eventual impact?
(Alex from Anaheim)
Saying "most likely" puts an interesting twist on the question. Guys like Tyler Austin, Slade Heathcott and Mark Montgomery will all likely have extensive big league careers, but I don't know how impactful those careers will be. I still believe Gary Sanchez's bat can carry him to the Major Leagues and I think there's some hope that he can catch well enough that you live with it because of the impact of his bat. (Mark Anderson)
2013-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which of these Yankee OF prospects, Slade Heathcott, Mason Williams or Tyler Austin, do you feel will have the best major league career?
(TheDonCharleone from North Carolina)
Austin. Better bat. (Jason Parks on the Midseason Top 50 Prospects)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Big league comp for Tyler Austin?
(Brock from Nc)
Brian Austin Green (Jason Parks)
2013-01-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tyler Austin legit? Do scouts agree with the numbers?
(Txt hrs from Dallas)
Depends on the numbers, but scouts seem to think he's going to be a solid-to-good player. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-02-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Was Tyler Austin close to make this year's top 101, and do you think he has a realistic shot of cracking in next year?
(MikeD from NY)
No; No. (Kevin Goldstein)
