BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-07-13 15:00:00 (link to chat)Josh Hader, Reynaldo Lopez, and Amir Garrett seem to have similarities in their profiles with similar volatility. Which of those guys is your preference long-term? Why?
(Matt from KY)
I'll take Lopez on upside, even if he's not a lock to remain a starter. Hell, none of them are. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2016-04-12 18:00:00 (link to chat)Which side would you rather have? Dom Smith or Amir Garrett and Touki Toussaint
(Bill from Usa)
Dom Smith. Dom Smith, Dom Smith, Dom Smith. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-03-14 14:30:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Amir Garrett?
(Viktor from MD)
I like him, and he's another guy I want to put eyes on next week. I like athletes, I like players who succeed despite coming to baseball late (particularly pitchers, since he should have a relatively fresh arm), and I'm excited that he's in an organization that has such a good history of churning out productive big leaguers. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2016-03-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)I need 1 more player for my fantasy minor league team. The choice is a SP prospect (Kolby Allard, Amir Garrett, Josh Hader, Grant Holmes, Yadier Alvarez or Dylan Cease), position player (Dominic Smith or Trent Clark) or lottery ticket (Willie Calhoun). Which SP and position player would you choose and also your overall pick, taking into account not only ceiling/floor but also proximity to the bigs (the closer the better).
(paladin from philippines)
I really like a bunch of those dudes. Calhoun can be a special hitter, but he's a butcher defensively and loses value if (when) he moves to the OF. Allard and Garrett are two really high-upside arms, and Alvarez could turn into any pitcher you can think of (good or bad). I probably go Clark there, but you've got options depending on what you're into. (Wilson Karaman)
2015-12-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see Amir Garrett in the Reds' rotation in a year or so? Bullpen? Thanks!
(Greg from Virginia Beach, VA)
Hey Virginia Beach! I kinda miss Virginia Beach, I lived there for a couple years.

I'd say he's in the rotation at some point in 2017. His improvement in '16 was really impressive, much more consistent delivery/secondary stuff.

Future's DS2 was really good, I'm not sure if it's top 5, but it belongs in consideration. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-07-13 14:30:00 (link to chat)How does Amir Garrett's lack of experience play into his potential? Does his athletic background make it that much easier to learn mechanics of pitching and repeating?
(Reds fan from My couch)
It really depends on the player, but Garrett is crazy athletic and his delivery is fine when he actually repeats it. That's my issue, he has trouble repeating his mechanics and release points, but that's also because he hasn't been pitching long. I think it does make it easier for him to learn but it also depends on the makeup of the player to an extent. Garrett's stuff is no joke, his FB has serious velo and life. Definitely an intriguing arm and the exact type of prospect I love seeing in the Futures Game. (Futures Game Chat)
2015-03-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Describe the degree of obscurity…….Amir Garrett, does he have "special" anywhere in his prospectus? If he is just a guy, do you think Lewis Thorpe is "guy" better than him?
(Victor from Dumfries)
At one point, I thought he was going to be a solid mid-rotation starter. Now, probably nothing more than a reliever. Basketball hurt his development quite a bit. I like Thorpe substantially more. (Christopher Crawford)
2014-11-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi NIck, Do you think Amir Garrett can take an even bigger step next year now that he's focused solely on baseball? Did you or anyone on your staff get any looks at him this year? Other than the stats how different did he look from the guy he was in 2013?
(Jeff from Ohio)
I think there's a high likelihood it's a relief arm. It was cleaner this year, and there was a little more consistency with the slider and the overall package, but I'm not yet a believer in the change-up long term, and there's still a pretty big gap between his current skill set and where he needs to be to take the ball every fifth day for a big league club. I expect continued growth, but that more advanced bats will eventually force him to the pen. (NL Central Top 10s With Nick Faleris)
2014-09-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)The Dayton team ran out Nick Travieso, Sal Romano, Amir Garrett and Nick Howard as starters for the last month of the season. Rank those guys as prospects.
(Mike from Dayton)
Howard, Garrett, Travieso, Romano. (Jordan Gorosh)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Amir Garrett?
(boneil33 from Boston)
I love the thought of Amir Garrett. Big athletic kid with an electric arm. I'm really glad he's given up or currently seriously contemplating giving up basketball. I'm sure he's a reliever at this stage in development, but he has a shot to be a meaningful if things go right. (Zach Mortimer)
