BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Have you seen Tyrell Jenkins recently? Is he still a prospect? If he can stay healthy can we still dream on him as a no. 2-3 starter?
(traindoggah from maine)
I have. I saw him a few weeks ago and he's very much still a prospect. He's also still very much a project. He simply hasn't thrown that much for as long as he's been around. Mid-rotation starter is still possibility because the arm is very good. I actually really like the arm. But being a starter is also still a long way off. His change-up needs a ton of work. In that system, they have so many options that they may not waste the time in trying to develop the change-up and just have him stick to the fastball/slider and turn him in to a reliever, which he should be very good at. Either way, it's yet another good arm in the Cards system. (Jeff Moore)
2014-05-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)Pick up Clinton Hollon, Jairo Labourt or Miguel Castro over any of these injured upside pitchers: Tyrell Jenkins, Luis Heredia or Jose Martinez?
(traindoggah from maine)
I'd take a shot on Hollon at this point. Tough to take any of the injury struck pitchers over him. (Bret Sayre)
2013-10-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)How do view the outlook/upside of JR. Graham and Tyrell Jenkins following shoulder injury?
(ZigZagBurners from SLO)
Graham will be fine; should be ready to take another step forward in 2014. But shoulder injuries scare me more than any other injury, especially with pitchers, so I always a adopt a wait and see approach. (Jason Parks)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Has the train left the station on Tyrell Jenkins? Regarded as a tremendous pitching toolkit when he got drafted, but he's hurt a lot, and hasn't been that good when he's healthy. Too late for him? Or still young enough that there's hope?
(Bill from New Mexico)
I talked to a scout that still believes in Jenkins. It may never come but it is to early to give up on him. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-05-30 13:30:00 (link to chat)Is there a next wave of Cardinals pitching prospects to look for now that practically all of the big name ones are already up?
(Mike from Springfield)
Not sure its a wave as much as a trickle for a while. Tyrell Jenkins is the next highly-rated guy for me but even he's a couple of years out yet. (Mark Anderson)
2013-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Speaking of "how worried are you about..." guys, how worried are you about Tyrell Jenkins? Is he even on the St. Louis radar screen any more, given the way they've been churning out pitching prospects?
(Bill from New Mexico)
Not crazy worried yet. With his arm, he's absolutely still on the St. Louis radar. I didn't have a report on him yet, but just asked a scout for you. The response: "Stuff is still there, hasn't been able to make adjustments." (Jason Cole)
2013-02-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on the following arms, as far as ceiling and likelihood to reach it: Taylor Guerrieri, Tyrell Jenkins, Victor Sanchez and Jose Castillo
(Kai from SLO)
I'm getting a ton of prospect questions from Kai, among others, and while I truly appreciate that you thought me worthy of answering them, I feel I'd be doing a disservice by not redirecting you to the far superior sources of prospect knowledge at BP. I'm not a scout, and I don't get to a ton of minor-league games, so much of my prospect knowledge comes from A) looking at stats, which offer an incomplete picture of minor-league players' potential, and B) reading the work more scouting-inclined prospect writers produce, at BP and elsewhere.

I could just rehash what I've read or tell you what the stats say, but you'd get a more complete picture by going to a primary source. Jason Parks, Nick Faleris, Mark Anderson, Chris Mellen, Jason Cole & Co. are always willing to answer questions promptly via email and on Twitter. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-01-16 13:30:00 (link to chat)What "consensus" (top) prospects do you find yourself having doubts about? Or flip it, what guys do you love that most prospect prognosticators have doubts about?
(Larry from Kansas City)
I've always harbored some doubts about the star potential of George Springer. I see the tools; I've seen them since college, but he's still very raw in the application of those tools. I think he'll be a big leaguer and probably a solid one, but I don't see the potential star that some see.

On the other side of things, I remain infatuated with Tyrell Jenkins. He's been among my top few Cardinals prospects for the last couple of years, despite many others seemingly holding off on him a bit. I love his potential and think he could develop into a beast. (Mark Anderson)
2012-12-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Cardinals still need a shortstop and have tons of young starting pitching. Rangers still need starting pitching and have an abundance of young shortstops. Shelby Miller, Matt Adams & Tyrell Jenkins for Jurickson Profar. Why wouldn't John Mozeliak and Jon Daniels be talking?
(Don from Missouri)
Hi Don, thanks for the question. My personal opinion is that it's impossible to "have an abundance of shortstops," but such a trade would be fun. I'm not even sure how I'd evaluate it other than to note that I'd hate to give up Profar. Then again, Mozeliak probably feels the same way about his guys. Hmmm... now I totally want this to happen. (Geoff Young)
2012-10-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jurickson Profar for Oscar Taveres + Tyrell Jenkins -- why WOULDNT the Rangers (and/or the Cardinals) do this?
(kok from TEXAS!)
Depends on player evaluation. If you think Profar is a future superstar at a premium position, you don't trade him. If you think Taveras is a future .300/30 type, and Jenkins is a major leaguer with some impact potential, then it would change the debate. I can think of several reasons both pro and con for a prospect swap like this. When in doubt, lean towards the guy you know the best, the player you have made the investment in. (Jason Parks)
2012-04-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Did you get a chance to see Tyrell Jenkins pitch this spring? I ask because I don't recall you telling Patricia anything about him. Also, who has the best bone structure on FC Barcelona? We all know who has the best hair.
(Gene from Los Angeles)
The Cardinals play in the Grapefruit league during the spring, so I didn't see them this time around. I plan on visiting Florida during the GCL. I'm a big Tyrell Jenkins fan, though.

The best bone structure on Barca belongs to Puyol. He also has the best hair, the wettest hair, the wettest body, and the most #want. (Jason Parks)
2012-04-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)can you see a pitching prospect raising his stock this year like taijuan walker did last year?
(mike from utica)
Sure. When stuff exists, the threat of magic is always upon us. Take a guy like Tyrell Jenkins. The stuff is there for an explosion. (Jason Parks)
2012-02-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat, K.G.! You seem lower on righty Tyrell Jenkins than any other mainstream mavens---what is keeping him from 4-star, top 101 status? Thanks again.
(Clancy Wiggum from Springfield)
What is a pretty huge gap between potential and reality. (Kevin Goldstein)
