2013-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Raul Alcantara? Is this the step forward the A's wanted to see?
(ttt from Manhattan)
It's an intriguing arm, and definitely a nice step forward in an A's system that really, really lacks depth right now. Most scouts I've spoken to on Alcantara this season believe it's a major league arm, but likely a reliever. (Jason Cole)
