BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-10-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)What one or two minor league stats are the best indicators of future success for a hitter in MLB? What about a minor league pitcher?
(Boyd from Washington D.C.)
Using stats as indicators is tricky. As I pointed out in my article about Aaron Judge, I think they can be a guideline to help us understand what we're seeing along with scouting reports. Using just stats is ludicrous (though that's not necessarily what you're insinuating). That said, one of the go-to stats I use for both hitters and pitchers is K/BB ratio.

Side note, when I write the word ludicrous, to this day I still spell it the like the rapper and rely on spell check to fix it, mostly out of nostalgic stubbornness. (Jeff Moore)
2014-09-10 12:00:00 (link to chat)Do you project Aaron Judge as a major league starter?
(Alex from Anaheim)
Judge definitely has the ability.

He's a guy that I think we really cannot truly state on that before we see him against Double-A competition. He has a few quirks at the plate that could be exposed, such as his ability to pull the hands in. Also, his ability to stay back on the good off-speed. His raw power is plus-plus and it's a sexy package. I'll be seeing a lot of him next year, and am very excited. (Tucker Blair)
2014-09-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)How good do you think Aaron Judge will be?
(Lewis from Connecticut)
I'm starting to come around. The reports about the hit tool are extremely encouraging, which surprised me. Yet, he's going to have to adjust in AA/AAA, and again in the majors. He's a good athlete for his size, but I always worry about mammoth position players as every day guys. It's very hard to control the zone at 6'7, and even though the hit tool has improved, it's still got a decent ways to go in order to work at the major league level. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you have high hopes for Aaron Judge?
(Alex from Anaheim)
That's one for the prospect guys--minor league OFers are usually off my radar :) Check out this report for more http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_bat.php?reportid=160 (Harry Pavlidis)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Craig, in a points based league that penalizes K's, would Tapia leapfrog guys like, Lewis Brinson, Nick Williams, and Aaron Judge?
(MP from Kentucky)
Brinson yes, Judge is close, but Williams is still in front for me. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Aaron Judge will be a power bat for the Yankees at some point?
(Alex from Anaheim)
Absolutely. I'm all in on Aaron Judge. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ranking highest upside, bat only... Aaron Judge, Rio Ruiz, Lewis Brinson, Renato Nunez, Dalton Pompey, and Franklin Barreto?
(MP from Kentucky)
Pure upside: Brinson, Judge, Pompey, Ruiz, Barreto, Nunez (Craig Goldstein)
2014-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Aaron Judge's plate discipline this season for real? He seemed like a massive swing-and-miss risk coming into the season but he's been walking prodigiously. Is it more that pitchers are trying to work around him, or is he just being really patient?
(NStellini from New Jersey)
It was assumed that Judge would have big time strike out numbers because tall hitters tend to have a hole in their swing that they can't do anything about. That hole is still there and will probably get exploited at higher levels, but his approach limits it as much as is possible. He has a small-mans approach in a really huge body. He's patient and tries to hit line drives back up the middle and to the gaps. It's a great approach, and while it would limit most people's power, he's so big and strong that he'll still run into his fair share of home runs. I was impressed. (Jeff Moore)
2014-07-22 15:00:00 (link to chat)Jordan, gun to your head (pretend, of course), which of these bats has the best chance to win an MVP in 5-7 years: Raimel Tapia, Dalton Pompey, Austin Meadows, Aaron Judge, or Rio Ruiz.
(Matt from KY)
None of them have an MVP ceiling. But, Tapia could mash his way to one, I guess. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for answering more questions. Aaron Judge has put solid numbers, albeit has an older player in A ball. Does his improved contact enhance his prospect rankings. How Do you see him project to the the major league level when that time comes.
(J from Youngstown)
The swing and miss has still been prevalent, and I think you'll see it come back to life in a big way at Double-A. Despite the appearance of lower strikeout rates, I have still had numerous scouts indicate he's struggled with some stuff in the zone because he's got a longer swing. I want to see how he adjusts to improved arms before I really marry myself to a projection for him, but he's more solid player than star. (Mark Anderson)
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Aaron Judge?
(Chris from Phoenix)
Exceptionally large man with serious thunder in the bat. I don't believe he will hit MLB-caliber pitching enough for the power to manifest at full potential, but then again, he could be a serviceable MLB player without all of his power coming out in game action. (Mark Anderson)
