2016-09-07 19:00:00 (link to chat)Looking ahead to 2017, the A's appear to have 3/5 of their rotation, assuming health, locked in for before the trading deadline: Sonny Gray, Sean Manaea, and Kendall Graveman. Out of Jesse Hahn, Chris Bassitt, Henderson Alvarez, Daniel Mengden, Jharel Cotton, Raul Alcantara, Dillon Overton, and Frankie Montas, who can round out the rotation, who is more of a 4A player, and who just won't every be healthy enough again (looking at you, Jesse Hahn and Henderson Alvarez!)?
(Greg from San Francisco)
I'm mostly going to have to go off colleagues' reports, because I don't get any Oakland affiliates out here on the east coast. Seems to me like Mengden, Overton, and Alcantara have the best shots to be MLB starters, whereas Montas and Cotton might be better prospects but also probably profile best in relief. That may be completely wrong, though.

Hard not to feel for Henderson Alvarez given how his last couple years have went. (Jarrett Seidler)
2015-03-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)Rank these pitchers according to ceiling please: A.J. Cole, Raul Alcantara, Joe Ross
(Allota from Vermont)
A.J Cole, Joe Ross, Raul Alcantara in my opinion. (Rob Willer)
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)
