BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-11-04 18:00:00 (link to chat)What is a realistic role for Albert Almora? Does he have the upside to supplant Arismendy Alcantara (all things considered)?
(Jay from S IN)
Almora could be a Role 6 player at his peak. the Defensive profile is going to be impressive in the middle of the diamond, and while the offensive approach is aggressive, I think he has the chops to hit and hit for some good gap power long term. I think he'll be a better player overall than Alcantara. (Mark Anderson)
2014-10-03 11:00:00 (link to chat)I know minor league stats aren't everything, but Albert Almora didn't have the impressive numbers last season that other Cubs prospects did. Is his stock dropping at all or is he just as valuable an asset as he was heading into 2014?
(brewdrown from Chicago)
I'm going to answer this because I feel bad ignoring a question even when I don't know the answer, but I'm going to say: I don't know. I wish I did know, but my information would all be second- and third-hand and I'd probably bollocks something up in trying to translate what I've heard into my own words.

Jordan Gorosh is scheduled for a chat next Thursday and I think these prospect questions would be perfect for him. (Jason Wojciechowski)
2014-09-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who has a better chance of playing CF for the Cubs in the future, Albert Almora or Arismendy Alcantara?
(DR70095 from NC)
Wrong chat, sorry. (Joshua Kusnick)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)I have a bunch of young, far away OFs on my dynasty team. Who has the highest ceiling? Who do you think makes an impact first? Gabby Guerrero, Justin Williams, Manuel Margot, Albert Almora. Any have the chance to be a fantasy star?
(Brian from ma)
Highest ceiling, Guerrero. I don't think any are fantasy stars, but of the ones listed Guerrero/Williams have the chance. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-07-22 15:00:00 (link to chat)Why is Albert Almora so highly regarded as a prospect?
(Brian from Florida )
Outstanding fielder. Good bat to ball. Some bat speed. Can hit for power. Really good makeup/clubhouse guy. He's a CF all the way with the ability to hit .280 with some power; what's not to like? (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)How close were Jorge Soler or Albert Almora to making the list? And where does the Cubs minor league system now rank in the league with the addition of Addison Russel?
(Brian from Jacksonville, IL)
Almora made the list. (Jason Parks on the Top 50)
2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)Albert Almora has 10 walks in half a season. Please tell me things will get better with him.
(John from Chicago)
I care more about how players hit in the low minors than how often they walk. (Jason Parks on the Top 50)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is there a minor league position player whose tools you love, but is not showing up in the stat line yet?
(Joe Random from San Jose)
Clint Frazier is giving me a sad right now. Albert Almora is coming around but he's still not there yet production wise. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you make of Albert Almora's season? Safe to assume he will spend the entire year in Daytona?
(Gary from Kane County)
Don't know if he will, but he should. The tools and ability are there but the approach is not. He's going to need his at-bats. (Jeff Moore)
2014-05-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)It's early, but at what point do you get concerned with the Cubs farm system taking a step back, development-wise? Bryant is really the only prospect that's performing well. Alcantara's performance has slipped, Pierce Johnson has been hurt and has had control issues, CJ Edwards started strong and then got hurt, Jorge Soler has been banged up and Albert Almora started slow. I'm not on the ledge, I know it's early... but, uh, make me feel better.
(TulaneCubs from Chicago)
Let's see...player development isn't linear, many of those guys are young for their level...and there are other 'lesser' names that have done nicely (Hannemann, Tseng...although he just had a start cx'd but I think he's fine) (Harry Pavlidis)
2014-03-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Just checking on your opinion of Albert Almora. I noticed on a question above that you have Alcantara/Baez for 2B/3B and Bryant in right field w/ CF and LF not there yet. Are you not as high as him as other scouts?
(Nate from Indy)
No, that's my mistake; not sure how I forgot about Almora. He's absolutely the CF of the future. I blame the Cubs for having too many prospects for me to keep track of. (Ronit Shah)
2014-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you concur with the recent glowing reports on Albert Almora and Sean Manaea?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
100 percent yes. (Jeff Moore)
2014-02-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for doing the chat, Mauricio. Could you rank these OF based on offensive production five years from now - Christian Yelich, Gregory Polanco, Albert Almora, Clint Frazier, David Dahl.
(Luke from Schenectady)
Yellich - Frazier - Dahl - Almora - Polanco, but I think it's tight. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)Is Vogelbach strictly a trade chip for the Cubs? Also, ETA on Almora?
(Jack from Chicago)
I'm afraid to answer any Vogelbach questions without angering my colleague Bret Sayre. These situations tend to work themselves out; remember how people used to wring their hands about Ryan Howard in Philadelphia when Jim Thome was locked in? I suppose the Cubs could move him, but it would take a lot.

My educated guess on Albert Almora would be 2015. (Mike Gianella)
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Albert Almora seems like a decent all-around player. How does he look for fantasy purposes?
(captnamerca from dunedin FL)
He looks good. I think he gets underrated a bit but that he could be a 20/20 guy with a good average, in due time. (Craig Goldstein)
2013-11-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is a .315/.360/.485 slash line with 20+ HR and 20+ SB seem like a potential season for Albert Almora in his prime? Thanks for the chat Jason!
(Kevin from Kansas City)
I think Almora is going to be a very good major league player, but I don't see a .315 average (that's extremely impressive) and I don't see 20 SBs. He's a fringe-average runner at best, and even though he has a ton of instincts and run the bases well, I don't see 20 SBs at the highest level. 20 HR might be a stretch as well, although sources are mixed on his long term power potential. Personally, I see Almora as a .285+ bat with a good approach and 30+ doubles potential with some (10-15) HR potential all from a premium spot defensively. That's a first-division talent. (Jason Parks)
2013-10-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Since coming back from a broken hamate bone, Albert Almora has been displaying #rig all over the yard, and continued into the AFL. How much stock should we put into his early success in the AFL?
(Biscuits from Cali)
I don't put a lot of stock in AFL performances, but I don't discredit/ignore them either. #Rig might not be the best meme descriptor for Almora, as some of the scouting reports on him suggest he might play a little softer than you might assume. But he's a role 6 for me, and a top 20 prospect in the game. (Jason Parks)
2013-09-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you compare/contract Jackie Bradley, Jr. and Albert Almora? They sound similar both offensively and defensively.
(Bill from Chicago)
I think Almora has the higher ceiling. His raw tools are a little louder than Bradley's. I like both players and think both will be very good everyday big leaguers, but I think Almora ends up a little better long term. (Mark Anderson)
2013-09-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could Albert Almora see MLB in 2014? Is he a 15/30 guy in his prime?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
No. He could see the majors in 2015 if everything progresses smoothly. (Jason Parks)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Does Albert Almora have plus power potential? Or is he more of a high batting average guy with little power?
(Shawn from Office)
I think Almora is a smart hitter who will have a high batting average, and provide ~20 HR year. Almora is a very good player and knows how to play the game the correct way. I really believe in him. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-07-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for stopping by Jason! Just how good could my future outfield be headlined by Albert Almora and Jorge Soler?
(Theo Epstein from Chicago)
This good (points to naked, oiled up physique) (Jason Parks)
2013-05-30 13:30:00 (link to chat)Hi Mark! I drafted Jackie Bradley Jr., Albert Almora, and Jorge Soler in my keeper league draft. Can I get excited about my future outfield? Thanks!
(Jason from Toronto)
Absolutely, Jason. That's an impressive trio to have on your roster. Bradley and Almora are relatively low-risk guys and Soler offers arguably the highest ceiling but also the most risk. It's a group of quality players. (Mark Anderson)
2013-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat! I was wondering how so many scouts can be so high on a player, even if he has great tools, when he is unable to draw walks. One such player who comes to mind is Albert Almora.
(Jeff from Boston)
The rest of the tools just have to be really, really good. Walks are just part of a formula (lowercase f, not an actual formula) of how good a player is going to be. They really help, but I guess you can get around it if you have great other skills. (Zachary Levine)
2013-02-25 11:00:00 (link to chat)You seem to really love Addison Russell but you still have Albert Almora four spots higher. What gives Almora the edge?
(Ben from SF)
I like them both. Four spots doesn't really mean much. I might put Russell higher today; Almora higher tomorrow. (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)

Thanks John
(John from Boston)
I sort of feel like this is a riddle to see if I can figure out what this list even is. What is this list? I'll go with Salvador (Sal(vy)) Perez and then the rest just for the present. (Zachary Levine)
2013-01-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Dan,can you put these guys in order.....Jose Fernandez,Albert Almora,Solar,Zimmer,Syndergaard,Hedges,Andrew Heaney,Salvador Perez,Allen Webster,Aaron Sanchez and Dan Straily....thanks
(John from Boston)
Hey, John.

Sheesh, that's a lot of names. From a fantasy standpoint, and based on what I've read, I'd probably want to own Fernandez and Sanchez. I'm probably not qualified to put the others in order, so I'd suggest asking a member of our prospect team. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-12-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on Cubs prospect Albert Almora? He seems to be pretty polished for an 18 year old. What kind of every day major leaguer do you expect him to be in the future? Carlos Beltran-like?
(Bobby from Chicago)
I'll use this to plead that I know very little on the prospect side, so I will plead the fifth on this. However, in general, as a developmentalist, may I say that I am astonished by how mis-understood development (in all senses of that word) is mis-undestood between the ages of 18-24.
