DateQuestionAnswer
2014-01-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm a bit surprised not to see both Vincent Velasquez and Lance McCullers off this list? Both had pretty good years and are expected to get better. Domingo Santana also should have a case as well. What made you not have them on the list?
(YP from Houston)
Other players offered a more convincing case. (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)Could you rank these pitchers in term of future fantasy value: C.J. Edwards, Miguel Almonte, Vincent Velasquez, Sean Manaea, and Alexander Reyes Thanks!
(Adam from Toronto )
Manaea, Almonte, Edwards, Reyes, Velasquez. (Ben Carsley)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)I hear mixed opinions on Vincent Velasquez. Is he a 2 starter or more of a back end guy for you?
(Matt473 from Austin)
I never got a#2 vibe from him when I saw him pitch in the NYPL, and the reports I've received from scouts that saw him in the MWL all considered him more of a #3/4 type. (Mark Anderson)
