BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-05-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Kenny. Are there any Low Minor Yankee Prospects you are higher are then others who haven't been discussed?
(Jerry from Earth)
Hey Jerry. I think Ian Clarkin has some upside as a 'low minor' prospect. I also think we don't talk about Jacob Lindgren enough. He still has a lot of strikeout upside to me. (Kenny Ducey)
2014-08-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Jacob Lindgren a great srikeout pitcher or is he just feasting on weaker competition and small sample size.
(mqtman from Marquette MI)
I received NSFW texts from Tucker Blair after watching Lindgren the other night. Legit pitcher. (CJ Wittmann)
2014-06-09 12:00:00 (link to chat)The Yankees announcers Friday were hawking Jacob Lindgren as a possible September call-up in the bullpen. Does this strike you as (a) plausible, and (b) a good idea?
(edwardarthur from Illinois)
It's definitely plausible, and I'd be fine with it if he looks ready after some minor league action. It's a reliever profile all the way so get him to the bigs as quickly as you can. The fastball/slider will play, so get him into pro ball and let's see how quickly he can contribute in the bronx. (Draft Wrap Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
