BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-11-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Anthony Desclafani has been pretty impressive so far in the AFL. What are you hearing about him?
(Kevin from In a hole)
"The Year Ahead: DeSclafani is one of those arms that consistently pitches with a high level of confidence in his stuff. He isnít afraid to come right after and challenge hitters, avoiding spells of nibbling and trying to be too fine. When the stuff is more solid average than well above average, however, there needs to be some element of finesse to avoid working in spots that usually result in ringing contact around the yard. The right-hander ran into this during his call-up in 2014, especially when working as a starter. DeSclafaniís mentality and fastball-slider combo likely slot him into a relief role over the long run, where his heater can play up a tick in short bursts and his aggressive approach fits with getting two or three concentrated outs before handing the ball over to someone else. There is a chance that the 24-year-old can tone things down a bit and get enough out of the changeup to hang as a starter on a second-division team for the early portion of his career. The righty should be in line to log major-league time in 2015, in all likelihood consistently coming out of Miamiís bullpen at some point in the season." --Chris Mellen, from here: http://bit.ly/1zkgzqQ (Sam Miller)
2014-05-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think is the ceiling of recently-debuted Anthony Desclafani?
(David from Toronto)
Just a back-end fantasy starter assuming he even sticks in the rotation. He's still no lock to avoid a bullpen fate. (Bret Sayre)
