BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who's the A's future 1st baseman? Renato Nunez or Matt Olson?
(Charlie Manson from Corcoran, Cali)
Nunez is the safer bet but is boring and Olson has the higher ceiling. If you're forcing me to pick, I'd take Nunez. (Mike Gianella)
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)
2014-07-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Sup brother bear, is it 8:40 yet? Anywho, any chance Renato Nunez gets some PA's on the futures game over the AS break or should I take my a's colored glasses off?
(Mello Mike from At the quad)
Sup Mello. Oh, he'll get an AB or two. I haven't been able to lay eyes on him this year, but I'll have some #buddies in Minnesota for the game and they should get some reports on him. DVR the game, he'll play. (Chris Rodriguez)
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is Renato Nunez' ceiling? Is the power a byproduct of the Cal League, or is it legit?
(Bryan from Sacramento)
The power is certainly real and has always been his calling card. That doesn't mean the Cal League isn't augmenting it a bit right now, but he has legitimate plus raw. The approach is better this year than last, which has allowed him to drive the ball more consistently. I still don't buy Nunez as a high-average hitter against better arms, but I give him a chance to be a low-average, strong power guy on the infield corners; possibly a solid MLB regular. (Mark Anderson)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is Renato Nunez a legit prospect? He has a 1.488 OPS in his last 10 games. What does his ceiling look like?
(Matt from Oakland)
Legit. Aggressive hitter with plus power potential. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Renato Nunez legit? He has been destroying the Cal League recently. Will he be top 100 by the end of the season?
(Josh from Virginia)
There's legit power in the swing, but the approach isn't pretty. He's also limited defensively. I don't think he'll make the top-100 unless something huge happens from now until the end of the year. (J.P. Breen)
2013-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Matt Olson: .225/.326/.435 with 23 HRs as a 19 year old in the Midwest League. Step forward or back?
(Zack from Boston)
I'd call it a bit of a step back because, when I saw him in the AZL last summer, I thought there was a more advanced feel to hit with decent power. The reports I've heard on how his body developed this year weren't great. He and Renato Nunez both took a slight step back this year with Daniel Robertson impressing and flying slightly under the radar. (Jason Cole)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Clash of the Low A 3B - who ya got: Rio Ruiz or Renato Nunez? Either one look like a future first division player?
(Rob from Alaska)
Good question, I'll take Rio Ruiz because I think he has a better chance of staying at third. From all accounts it does not look like Nunez will be able to stick at third, and he has major violence in his swing. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-06-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat Paul! Can you tell me a little bit about Rosell Herrera and Renato Nunez? I'm looking deep into these guys for my fantasy farm team.
(Ben from Denver)
I'd be 10000% lying if I tried to fake this. I'm not entirely sure you didn't make these names up and somehow create BP profiles for them. Got my eye on you, Ben. (Paul Sporer)
2012-03-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Have you heard anything about Renato Nunez? Signed for 1st round money in 2010, haven't heard his name since.
(JP from Oakland)
He played in the Dominican Summer League last year, and will make his U.S. debut this year. He's also 17 years old and younger than many high school kids who will be drafted in June, so it's not like he hasn't lived up to expectations. (Kevin Goldstein)
