DateQuestionAnswer
2014-11-04 18:00:00 (link to chat)How does Trea Turner compare to Cory Spangenberg? He's better in the field and faster, right? Does he project better at the plate as well?
(padremurph from Los Angeles)
Speaking as a a guy that's not completely on the Trea Turner bandwagon, he's a considerably better prospect than Spangenberg overall. He is faster and has a legitimate defensive profile on the left side of the infield. I think he's going to make plenty of contact and there are some hints that he could find enough punch in the game to really keep pitchers honest. I don't see an impact profile, but I do think he can be a quality everyday player at the highest level; something I don't really see with Spangenberg. (Mark Anderson)
2014-10-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Were people too down on Trea Turner's hitting ability before the draft? Or can he be a 55/hit 45-50 power type in MLB which, together with his speed and ability to stick at short, would be quite valuable?
(Mario66 from Pittsburgh)
I am higher on Turner than most, because I think his athleticism and glove help significantly play up the value. Turner's swing is long and the bat speed is not great, but I only think he needs to have a 4 hit at the major league level to provide value. I didn't see average power from him in my viewings at NC State or in the AFL. I do not blame any evaluator for not falling in love with Turner though. There is more risk involved with his bat than your typical college guy. (Tucker Blair)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Trea Turner has been tearing up the MWL. How excited should I be?
(padremurph from Los Angeles)
As a college product, he should be hitting in that league, so don't go too crazy. Keep an eye on his contact issues. If he can solve those he's going to be fun. The speed is fantastic. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-06-09 12:00:00 (link to chat)Please give me a good reason to believe in Trea Turner more than the Padres' long history of highly drafted players with bat concerns that never made it.
(alangreene from Oakland)
Each player is different and Turner does have the athleticism and feel to develop into an everyday guy. It's about the Padres development and Turner's willingness to make any necessary changes. (Draft Wrap Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
2014-06-05 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for staying with us today. Which draft pick today is going to combine the highest degree of risk (medical, tools-related, etc.) with the highest selection slot? One of the TJ pitchers, maybe?
(wileecoyote121 from Larchmont, NY)
Interesting question. Hoffman is the most likely answer. I think Trea Turner might top him, though. Real questions about the skill set playing and he's been at least mentioned with top 10 teams. (Draft Day Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
2014-05-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)Shortstop is a concern for the Reds. Inconsistent offense in the majors and lack of quality prospects in the minors. How do the shortstops in this draft look? How many decent all around (offensely and defensively) good players and how many players with just really, REALLY good bats? (your reply will be really appreciated)
(atomic dumpling from cincinnati)
Good notes and video on the top shortstops here (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=23707). It's not particularly deep at shortstop (better on the second base side). The Reds' best targets would probably be Trea Turner or Ti'quan Forbes in the first round, and someone like Cole Tucker in the second or third. Milton Ramos is an excellent defender, but probably doesn't have enough bat at present to interest you. (Pre-Draft Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
2014-05-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)Can Trea Turner be effective in pro-ball with that swing, or does it need a complete overall by the team that's drafting him?
(Jake from NC)
I think he'll need to simplify things and focus on putting the ball on the ground and working away. Closer to overhaul than working with what he has. (Pre-Draft Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
2014-05-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)If you were drafting for the Mets, would you take Michael Conforto, Trea Turner or Sean Newcomb and why?
(Mr. Must See TV from Not Anywhere Near Citi Field)
I like Newcomb, Conforto, Turner in that order. Newcomb isn't a front-ender for me, but he has a lot of room to maneuver in that mid-rotation slotting, giving him a good shot to stick there long term. Conforto's swing carries a little too much risk for me compared to Newcomb, and Turner doesn't have a strong enough defensive profile to make up for the big hit tool questions. (Pre-Draft Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
2014-05-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give us an idea of what kind of slash line and production scouts who like Trea Turner might believe he's capable of at the next level. Would .275/.350/.380 with single digit home runs and 20-30 steals be a fair expectation if he meets his upside?
(Jay Triano from BC)
I think it's possible, but the on-base delta seems high to me. I can't see him scaring big league arms enough to draw that many walks. (Pre-Draft Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
2014-06-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)What have you heard regarding the mets and who they may take with their first pick? And what is that players outlook?
(MetsFaithful5 from Syracuse)
Trea Turner. They have plenty of arms. I'm not a big fan of Turner at the plate, but he can stick at shortstop. (Ron Shah)
2014-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Trea Turner primarily a speed/glove prospect or do you see his bat developing down the road?
(Bill from Jacksonville)
Unusually toolsy for a collegiate player, but I've yet to talk to a scout that really loves the bat, or the glove (for that matter). I think speed guys are often overrated. Give me guys that can actually hit over guys that can actually run but only sort of hit. (Jason Parks)
2014-03-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Trea Turner seems to have had a quiet season. Is he still in the discussion for a top five pick? What kind of shortstop could we be looking at
(Ronald? from Ronald)
He wouldn't be in my top 5, but college positional players may go higher in this draft because of scarcity. Other side of the coin is maybe not, since the arms in this class are legit. (Ronit Shah)
2014-02-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Trea Turner has been attached to the Cubs #4 pick by numerous people. Should this make Cubs fans excited or might we do better than Turner? Thanks
(MKPJ from Chicago)
I wouldn't be too excited about that as of right now. It's a pitching heavy draft with the bats quite a ways behind, as of right now. I had just read the other day that the Cubs want to load up on arms in the amateur draft: http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2014-02-15/sports/chi-chicago-cubs-pitching-draft-20140215_1_chicago-cubs-aaron-nola-baseball-america (Ronit Shah)
2014-02-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Trea Turner & Jacob Gatewood. Do they stick at SS? What kind of projection are we looking at?
(AJ from Phoenix)
I think Turner sticks at shortstop; Gatewood enters pro ball as a shortstop, but ultimately ends up as a third baseman or in right field. (Ronit Shah)
2014-02-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Trea Turner, Michael Gettys, and Michael Conforto are 5 tool players. I've read negatives on all three. Who is the best of the bunch or is there someone better? A theoretical 5 category player.
(Vic from Dumfries)
You can dream on Gettys for days. So many tools. (Ronit Shah)
2014-02-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)I've heard of Trea Turner but don't have a grasp of him? How good is he?
(Vic from Dumfries)
Vic, Keep in mind I'm far from the draft expert on the staff. A few people have asked about certain draftees, however, so I'll try my best over these next few questions.

Turner is good enough to be a first-round pick. He has an elite tool (speed) and shows enough arm and glove to project as an average or better shortstop. The bat will determine whether Turner is a top- or bottom-of-the-order guy, but if he stays healthy he's a solid bet to reach the majors. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-02-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you were the Cubs picking at #4 and you had a choice between Trea Turner and Tyler Beede who would you choose right now?
(Jordan from Las Vegas)
I love me some Trea Turner, but they could use pitching. I hate when teams draft for need, however. I'll tell you in a few months after we see some more of Beede. (Jeff Moore)
2013-11-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Trea Turner a real deal? Also, Will you prefer Derek Fisher or Bradley Zimmer?
(Billy Beane from Oakland)
Provided he shows up in the spring with 80 speed and a clear shortstop profile, yeah he's a dude. I think the toughest question for evaluators will be placing a handicap on his ability to stay healthy through a long pro season. He was dinged up through the spring/summer, and the game will only get more physical. For his profile, it's not just about staying in the lineup, he needs the speed to play to its utmost in order to be a true impact talent.

Fisher is a superior draft prospect at this point. Zimmer made some noise this summer and has, I think, artificially inflated his value. He's still a projection talent, albeit an interesting one, but you're reliant on more changing (strength, swing, etc.) with Zimmer than you are Fisher. Both could fluctuate between first and third rounder depending on their springs, but for my money it's Fisher ahead of Zimmer right now by a decent amount. (Nick J. Faleris)
2013-11-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Trea Turner? Will he develop into: (1) a top-of-the-order shortstop on a first division team, or (2) Gary Brown redux, with a chance to stick on the dirt?
(Mario66 from Pittsburgh)
A few Turner questions as I scroll through so I'll address all here. Turner has a better approach than Brown and overall has a better on-base profile. Turner, when healthy, will also show a true shortstop defensive profile, which is a tough position to fill. The hope is you're buying a future #1 or #2 hitter that can play an average or better shortstop and provide good value on the bases. The fallback is a solid defensive shortstop with a bottom-third offensive profile but good value on the bases. Basically, so long as he has the big speed and can play a good shortstop he is going to make time on a big league roster. There's a higher offensive bar for Brown in center, and he's simply shy of Turner's offensive profile. (Nick J. Faleris)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)DJ Peterson or Trea Turner? Dominic Smith or Alex Jackson?
(Fred from WI)
Give me Trea Turner and Alex Jackson. This is not a knock on the two that I did not select, I just tend to always take the prospects that can stay up the middle. The prospects that are selected with the idea that they will end up at 1B always make me very nervous. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-05-30 13:30:00 (link to chat)If NC State's Trea Turner was in next week's draft, where do you think he'd be worthy of going? THX!!!
(Kim from Westlake Village, CA)
Turner would fit in the top half of this draft pretty easily. (Mark Anderson)
