BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Long term outlook for Roberto Osuna: mid-rotation arm or closer?
(Brittany from Mississauga)
I gotta think he gets a chance to start again. Being a shutdown reliever is a nice fallback, but he's still young enough to be looked at for more. (Harry Pavlidis)
2015-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)First of all, thanks for doing this chat! Also, what do you think about how the Blue Jays are handling Roberto Osuna? I really liked him as a pitching prospect, but there's no way they send him down to High-A or Double-A to spend a year or two developing as a starter now, right? Do you think he has more value as this kind of closer, or as a mid rotation starter in two or so years?
(Jack from Toronto)
First of all, you're very welcome. I think the handling of Osuna has been okay because realistically reliever was the most likely landing spot. I think any chance of him becoming a starter now has gone the way of the extinct bird I can't spell, but I think it's been fine. He's been fantastic. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-08-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Roberto Osuna is the long term answer to the closer position in Toronto?
(Karl from San Angelo)
I think so, yes. The only reason he might not be is because of Aaron Sanchez, but I think Osuna is the guy. He's really impressive. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-04-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)Who are some deeper high K/9 relievers that could provide value in a holds league?
(JT Smooth from Loveboat )
Shawn Kelley, Roberto Osuna, Antonio Bastardo, Zach Duke. (Mike Gianella)
2015-04-29 20:00:00 (link to chat)How valuable is Roberto Osuna? Worth stashing in 200-prospect league?
(Mikey from TOR)
I think he's right in that 150 range, so I'd say yes. I think he's likely to end up back in a starting role, and this relief experience may help him transition into that in the future. (Bret Sayre)
2014-10-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)I saw your blurb on Roberto Osuna after his first AFL appearance. Did anyone you know actually get eyes on him? Curious if guys were barreling him up or a bit unlucky? Also wonder if he was working on (ie throwing specifically) one particular pitch.
(YourVanCs from Vancouver)
None of our guys are out there yet, unfortunately, but that will be remedied soon. We have at least one person heading out next week, I believe, and then there's an army of us heading out the last week in October. You'll hear all about it if you follow us on Twitter. You may actually get some baseball information out of it instead of just nonsense about sandwiches. Any questions I get about specific AFL'ers, I'm going to make a note of and try to answer somewhere once I get out there to see the guys in question. (Jeff Moore)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)I just sold Michael Bourn for Ben Revere, Roberto Osuna, and Jonathan Pettibone in my 16 team mixed dynasty h2h league. Did I yield enough? We can keep all our players and have 40 man rosters that include 20 minors slots. I'm loaded with bats, and have iffy pitching with Homer Baily as my ace. Thoughts?
(Eric from Iowa)
That's a pretty good return right there. I think Pettibone can develop into a useful piece, especially in your deep league. (Paul Sporer)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are any of these arm prospects going to make an impact in 2 years for fantasy owners?: Roberto Osuna, Lucas Giolito, Heath Hembree, Matt Wisler, or Blake Snell?
(Hector from Santa Ana)
I'd bet on Wisler of that group. Hembree should be a major leaguer, but we'll see if he's doing anything of fantasy import. (Paul Sporer)
2013-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Was Roberto Osuna a top 101 prospect in BP's estimation?
(Jonnie from Snatch City)
I don't think he made it, but like I mentioned earlier, you could name 100 players with a legit case for the final 50 spots. He is one of them. (Jason Parks)
2013-01-16 13:30:00 (link to chat)Thanks for answering my other questions, Mark. If you don't mind, I'd love your opinion on another batch of pitching prospects - the next step down from the group I gave you earlier. If you had to order Brandon Maurer, Clayton Blackburn, Roberto Osuna, Henry Owens, Lance McCullers, how would you do that? Thanks again!
(BJ from Boston)
That's a pretty diverse group, BJ. My gut instinct would be to go Blackburn, Osuna, McCullers, Owens, Maurer, but I reserve the right to change that in the future! (Mark Anderson)
2012-11-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which single position does Houston still most lack both depth and top-shelf talent at in their farm system?
(Ashitaka1110 from Houston, TX)
Starting pitching. Because of the attrition attached to pitching, you want your system littered with power arms, mix in some left-handers, perhaps even a few with top-of-the-rotation upside and high probability strike throwers with a chance to be Scott Baker or Jeremy Guthrie are nice to have, too. Starters are so expensive, you truly cannot have too many. The systems with the most top pitching prospects are generally the most underrated. The Blue Jays are proving why that is this winter. They dealt Alvarez and Nicolino and still have six or eight really strong SP prospects. Watch out for Roberto Osuna, by the way. Ridiculous arsenal and raw stuff with 45 command already and he's still a teenager. That's what Houston needs, and Luhnow and company are off to a good, solid start. (Jason A. Churchill)
2012-09-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)When he signed, Roberto Osuna was seen as a guy with the ultimate ceiling of a MOR starter. Has that changed, or is his performance simply what we was to be expected from a relatively polished teenager? I'm leaning towards the latter because its still rookie and SS ball, but many have tried to convince me otherwise
(Mr Whiskers from Your closet)
I still believe in the mid-rotation ceiling and I still have concerns about his body as he matures. (Jason Parks)
