BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-01-15 18:00:00 (link to chat)Chad Wallach appeared on my watch list in 2014. It's difficult to find a catcher that hits over .300. He also walks a ton. Does he have the potential to be a starter in the bigs within the next few years? Or even a top prospect?
(Doctor K from Niagara Falls)
Wallach comes up short of the regular tag for me. I think he's more likely to provide more defensive value than offensive value at the big league level, leaving in more of a part time or bench role. (Mark Anderson)
2014-10-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who were some players that impressed you the most/least out in Arizona?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
- Mallex Smith has a plus glove in the OF and plus speed. Not sure if he ever hits, but that's a 4th OF type at the very worst.
- Brandon Drury looked the part
- Hunter Renfroe shows serious power and his BP was the best. The hip torque and drive he gets while demonstrating plus bat speed and whipping the bat head through the zone, it's just so impressive. We shall see if he hits enough to allow the power to play up.

- Sam Wolff looked the same as when I saw him early in the year. I can't trust the secondary arsenal (CB,CH). Had a hard time finding a release point or arm slot for both. Reliever all the way for me, but could see issues if he can't consistently piece it together with at least one of those pitches. The CB is much further along.
- Chad Wallach had pop times over 2.00 and has below-average tools across the board. Nothing different from when I saw him with Greensboro (where he hit .321/.430/.476) (Tucker Blair)
