BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-03-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Have a favorite pick you've made in the reliever draft thus far? Didn't make it into your league so can't see your roster.
(Alex from Milwaukee)
My league is in the middle of the 13th round. My 12 picks so far:

Craig Kimbrel
Grant Balfour
Junichi Tazawa
Kevin Siegrist
Craig Stammen
Will Smith
Carlos Martinez
Adam Ottavino
Wade Davis
Manny Parra
Heath Hembree
Santiago Casilla

(For anyone who doesn't know what we're talking about, Sam is running a reliever-only fantasy league with Effectively Wild listeners. Only categories are runs allowed and strikeouts, and only relief innings count.) (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are any of these arm prospects going to make an impact in 2 years for fantasy owners?: Roberto Osuna, Lucas Giolito, Heath Hembree, Matt Wisler, or Blake Snell?
(Hector from Santa Ana)
I'd bet on Wisler of that group. Hembree should be a major leaguer, but we'll see if he's doing anything of fantasy import. (Paul Sporer)
2012-10-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat today. I have questions on a couple of guys. Darrin Ruf will he become a decent MLB bat? Heath Hembree does he make the major league roster next season?
(Frederick from T Hills)
Hi Frederick, thanks for the questions. Ruf's impressive power display last season is softened a bit by the fact that he did it as a 25-year-old in Double-A. Still, that was quite a display and I'd think a team would have room for his bat as a platoon option (he destroyed lefties in 2012) or coming off the bench. As for Hembree, that's a loaded bullpen, but we'll see him up with the Giants at some point. (Geoff Young)
