2013-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Alec Asher: MORP, BORP, Other?
(MonkeyEpoxy from Amarillo)
He was the one Myrtle Beach starting pitcher I missed this season. He had a good season and finished strong though. I think back-of-rotation is probably the safest bet there – like a no. 4 type – shows a plus fastball with decent secondaries and throws strikes. (Jason Cole)
2013-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see Alec Asher as a major league starter?
(TPX2 from Taiwan)
Last answer should say "suspicions" and not "suspicious," obviously. On Asher, I see a major league quality arm with a chance to be a no. 4 starter or so. Big body with a decent delivery. Throws strikes and shows a plus fastball with okay secondaries. (Jason Cole)
