DateQuestionAnswer
2016-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can we get your thoughts on some diverse group of prospects: Joe Musgrove, Ronald Guzman, Jacob Faria, Tyler O'Neill, & Max Fried? Can we see any of them this year in the show & should we be buying or concerned in there early season performance?
(Bob from Northern Hemisphere)
Well, that certainly is a diverse group of prospects. The only one I would say is going to make an impact in 2016 is Musgrove, he was just promoted to Triple-A after dominating in Corpus Christi. Really impressed with O'Neill's start, the approach has improved a lot over this first month. Fried is struggling to throw strikes (common theme!) but like Fedde, some rust to shake off there, he needs to just stay healthy. But yeah, the guy who is gonna make an impact in 2016 is Musgrove. I was too low on him this preseason. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)Please rank the following pitching prospects...Francis Martes, Joe Musgrove, Anderson Espinoza, Franklyn Kilome, Colin Rea, Chih-Wei Hu, Wei-Chieh Huang
(Festivus313 from Phoenix)
Kilome is ahead of the rest of those guys and then Musgrove but after that this is where my lack of deeper minor league knowledge hurts me. I'd guess Marte, Rea, Huang, and Hu but to be honest I don't have a good feel for where these guys should truly sit. (Mike Gianella)
2015-06-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Digging for diamonds... is Joe Musgrove one?
(Jason from Seattle)
Potential MLB contributor for sure, but not a diamond. Certainly not for fantasy purposes. (Ben Carsley)
2015-06-15 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is Joe Musgrove just a late bloomer or is this year a case of SSS?
(Stanton Smith from Houston, TX)
He's only 22, so I'd say he's more of a slow starter. He's worth getting excited about, although I'm concerned that his cutter won't induce often whiffs and that his change won't come along enough to start. Could be a good reliever. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2012-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Assuming they all stay healthy, which new Astros' pitching prospect has the best chance of becoming an impact starting pitcher in the Majors; Colton Cain, Joe Musgrove or Kevin Comer?
(Ashitaka1110 from Houston, TX)
Of those three, I like Musgrove's upside the most but will go with Cain here because he'll be in Double-A next year. (Bradley Ankrom)
