DateQuestionAnswer
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)
2016-09-12 23:00:00 (link to chat)Jose Beerios and Dillon Overton have been hit hard in MLB. How do you like the odds of each to bounce back as a successful MLB starter?
(Festivus313 from Phoenix)
I have more confidence in Berrios as a fantasy asset, and it's apples and oranges, really. Berrios has SP2/3 upside, and pretty much everything in his developmental journey outside of the disastrous 11 starts he's made in the bigs suggests that. 22-year-olds with his talent are entitled to mulligans, though the ugly adjustment kicks his value down a peg or two in dynasty leagues, where a longer adjustment period probably has to be priced in now. Overton is one of my spirit animals as a real-life pitcher: a long, lanky lefty with a really solid change and fringe-average fastball. He's always going to be a guy that gives up his fair share of contact, but he harnesses his elasticity pretty well into a consistent delivery, and I think he can generate at least *some* fantasy value rounding out rotations in deeper leagues. FWIW I wrote him up (complete with Casey Fossum name drop) last season here: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_pit.php?reportid=289

Keith Hudson's my other favorite of the early dub movement. His "Pick-A-Dub" was one of the first full-length dub LP's released - most dubs had just resided one-off on the backs of 45's and exclusive to the various sound systems running street and club parties. This cut, a breakdown of Horace Andy's "I'm Alright," is one of the biggest boss jams on my all-time list: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwqF9mLJ75M (Wilson Karaman)
2016-08-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)If the velocity hasn't come back at this point, it's just not going to come back for Dillon Overton, right? Is he anything more than rotation depth/4-A player?
(Jack from Nashville)
Unfortunately it looks as though the velo won't be coming back for Overton. He's most likely an up and down guy as A's have to shuttle guys back and forth for injuries. (James Fisher)
2015-12-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any word on Dillon Overton's velocity? Can he succeed as a major league starter if he never actually rebounds to pre-surgery velocities?
(Carlos from Berkeley)
Sure, he can succeed. I just would like one of the offspeed pitches to flash plus on a more reliable basis. 50-55-55 is nice, it just doesn't belong in the top 10. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-09-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)So this year has been pretty terrible for A's fans. Billy Beane dealt the first legit offensive star in Josh Donaldson this team has had since Miguel Tejada, and he got pennies on the dollar (fingers crossed on Franklin Barreto!). Then we saw Jesse Hahn go down with a serious injury and I think he may be sidelined permanently. So give me some good news about the farm. Sean Manaea and Dillon Overton -- thoughts? How about Renato Nunez and Matt Olson? Is Matt Chapman anything other than a Stockton mirage?
(Ted from San Jose)
Still shaking my head at the Donaldson trade. I liked pretty much all the pieces the A's got back... but they aren't guys you trade a star 3B for. Really like Manaea. He's a dude. Going to be perfect middle rotation/3 SP in Oakland. Not sure the fastball command will be there for anything more than that though. Great park for his skill set, too. And man... personality is a perfect fit for the A's. Great get. Overton wasn't throwing very hard last I heard. Have to see where the health is there, but he's got some potential. My reports on the other guys are pretty dated. I wasn't a big fan of Olson. (Al Skorupa)
2015-05-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)What can you say about the trio of pitchers the A's have down in Stockton: RHP Dylan Covey, LHP Dillion Overton, and RHP Kyle Finnegan? They have put up okay numbers so far this season, but each is pretty old A-ball.
(Melissa from San Francisco)
Dillon Overton - FB has been around 88 mph this year. Lacks the plus stuff but there's a chance for a backend option here. More of a command/feel type that has a good CH where he replicates the arm speed.

Dylan Covey - Usually sits around low 90's. Command/control has been erratic. Not sure I see a starting profile here but it's an intriguing arm.

Kyle Finnegan - Has FB velocity, with the other stuff lagging behind. Another interesting arm but likely not a start. (Tucker Blair)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is Dillon Overton worth a stash in 12 team Dynastywwith 35 minor league spots?
(Steve from Oakland )
420 spots...nice

At that point, you stash who you want. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)I just moved a couple prospects in trades in a league where 300+ prospects are owned. Which of these 2013 draft picks may be worth rostering? Jordan Paroubeck, Riley Unroe, Dom Nunez, Thomas Milone, Nick Longhi, Cody Bellinger, Dillon Overton, Casey Meisner, Hunter Green, and Chris Kohler?
(username49 from Ohio)
Milone is the guy that jumps out at me. He's super raw and so very far away but he is the guy that jumped from this list. (Mauricio Rubio)
2013-07-12 19:30:00 (link to chat)Thanks for chatting, Nick. As an A's fan, I'm happily shocked that they were able to sign their top 15 picks. Would have loved to see them land Iolana Akau, the Hawaiian catcher, but I don't think anyone expected the A's to sign all four of Dillon Overton, Chris Kohler, Bobby Wahl and Dustin Driver. Are you surprised they all signed? With all of them in the fold, do you think the A's draft cracked the top 10? Thanks!
(Ron from Washington, D.C.)
Good news, Akau actually was signed! And I agree, the Athletics did a really impressive job. They earned additional flexibility due to Overton's underslot signing (though that comes with the price of Tommy John surgery). Lots of upside arms, a really nice bat in first rounder McKinney, and I liked grabbing Edwin Diaz in the early teens. Pinder/Healy is a solid corner infield tandem early on, as well. In a hit-and-miss class, Oakland seemed to pack in a whole lot of highly interesting acquisitions. That's a great accomplishment. (Nick Faleris on Draft Signing Day)
