DateQuestionAnswer
2016-09-12 23:00:00 (link to chat)I'll just toss some names at you who I find very interesting heading into 2017: Frank Kilome, Kolby Allard, Erick Fedde and Mitch Keller. They're all available in my deep fantasy league, should I just get nutty and grab them all!? Thanks, I enjoy these chats!
(Jmax from Niagara, Ontario)
Yeah, that's a pretty good short list of emergent pitching prospects this year. Kilome was dreadful in a few cold April starts, but has been just delightful since. Power fastball, his. Allard scares me more than most on account of the back issues, but he looked like the dictionary definition of projectable when I saw him in high school, and David Lee's report last week was optimistic about the stuff if not the health. And speaking of the medical ward, if Fedde's healthy he's a higher floor option with a nice, straight path to the middle of a rotation. Pittsburgh's for-them-aggressive promotion of Keller late in the season should tell you how high they are on him. If you've got the roster space or all those dudes then yeah, do it up, though if there are similar bats on the wire too, I'd lean in that direction.

2016-08-24 20:00:00 (link to chat)What is the upside of Erick Fedde? Can he be a possible 2 if all falls into place?
(Jack from Washington)
His upside is probably a number 2, but it's a lot more likely that he tops out as a number three. Still, the strikeouts are good and he has the prospect pedigree. (Scooter Hotz)
2016-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Did you see any of Erick Fedde while he was at Potomac? What did you think of him, and what can he be in the majors?
(jdc1989 from MO)
Starting at the bottom of the quene and working my way up, all.

Yes, I saw Fedde quite a bit this year. Potomac is the affiliate I cover that's closest to my neck of the woods.

RE: 'What did you think of him?'...
I would describe him as a leaner-framed, athletic, fast-armed guy, with good velocity and a good fastball and slider combo. That's the basic toolset: wiry with twitch; lively swing-miss fastball and hard breaking ball that can get swings. The best outings I saw of his, a firm split-like changeup was a big third piece to the mix of stuff, one that if he can make it a consistent weapon (as he showed more feel to do as the season progressed) will really raise the ceiling for this guy.

RE: 'What can he be in the majors?'
I think the best case is a middle-rotation starter who has power stuff and racks up strikeouts, with fair enough overall control. There's risk here, though--there's a track record of injuries/durability concerns, and he's more of a stuff over pitchability guy right now. That said, I wouldn't say he's ALL stuff and NO pitchability...so long as he keeps two above-average pitches like he has today, I think he CAN start even without tons of precision. (Adam McInturff)
2016-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you compare Erick Fedde and Sean Reid-Foley? They seem very similar, but does either have a better upside, or a higher floor that they will hit?
(Monty from Toronto)
Taking this question as it is a good followup to the previous Erick Fedde one.

I think that's a good point in terms of their similarities. The stuff is more the same to me than their frames and track records of durability, and it's for that reason that I think there's some difference in their respective floors.

They're both hard-throwing guys with heavy fastballs, who go to sliders as their primary out pitch. In those ways, they're similar--as are the sinker/slider mid-rotation profiles they both have in the best case.

I would say that Reid-Foley is the more durable frame, and though both guys have some funk to the arm-action in the back of the delivery, I'd probably say Reid-Foley gets through his mechanics with less noise overall. I love Fedde's stuff, when he's on, it is about as good as anyone in the minors. (about as good, note that I said 'about as good' please...)

But the durability questions and how that's impacted the amount of time Fedde has had to develop as a starter at the pro level likely give the 'floor' category to Reid-Foley for me, just because I think he might be the SAFER bet to remain a starter. That said, if Fedde clicks and is the more dynamic of the two in a big league rotation in the best case, don't be surprised. Fedde's stuff--from a 'raw pitches' standpoint--is really, really nasty on his best nights. Three definite 60 pitches, the fastball sometimes a little better when he's running it to 95-96 with above-average arm-side life. (Adam McInturff)
2016-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Trying not to scout stat lines but the start of the season so far for both Francis Martes & Erick Fedde hasn't been what I expected. Any concerns or do I need to relax as still early in the season?
(David from Atlantis)
The thing about scouting the stat line is that when you're walking guys like Martes is, you can go ahead and scout the stat line. You can't create that much self-inflicted damage, you just can't. Stuff is elite and I don't have long-term concerns because he's thrown strikes at every other level, but he's gonna have to make some adjustments.

I've gotten mostly positive reports on Fedde, it looks to me like he's being BABIP'd quite a bit. Also keep in mind there's rust to shake off there. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-05-18 19:00:00 (link to chat)Trying not to scout stat lines but the start of the season so far for Franklyn Kilome, Francis Martes & Erick Fedde hasn't been what I expected. Any concerns or do I need to relax as still early in the season?
(David from Atlantis)
I'm a believer in Martes and Kilome who both took huge steps forward last season, I wouldn't be concerned because of their age relative to the league they're playing in. They're going to be fine. The stuff is too good. (George Bissell)
2016-01-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)In May, Erick Fedde will be two years removed from TJ surgery. He was a top prospect before the operation, and was still drafted 18th overall despite just having gone under the knife. Obviously there is talent and potential there. What do you expect from him going forward and what kind of ceiling does he have?
(Rick from Sheboygan)
Cautiously optimistic. When he was healthy he shows two plus pitches and above-average control, and he still has some projection; that fastball could be plus-plus someday. Needs to throw the change more, needs to show he can handle a full season, but there's a lot of reason for optimism. Cautiously? (Christopher Crawford)
2015-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could Erick Fedde be a top 100 guy in the off-season? Loved the kid's stuff in college and while the TJS sucked, I think the Nats got a real good pick here. Is there #2 upside in Fedde's profile?
(Wilson from DC)
I like Fedde a lot, but like everyone else that's been mentioned -- sorry everyone -- I think that's a bit strong. There's two 60 pitches and a solid-average offering in his change when he was at his best at UNLV though, and I do believe he was a steal that late in the draft. Lets just see how things shake out when he comes back before we talk about top 100 though. (Christopher Crawford)
2014-05-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you think the Red Sox are targeting? Is there any chance Jeff Hoffman would fall to them?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
I think it's unlikely at this point that Hoffman makes it all the way down to the bottom of the first round. It could happen if he decides he wants top five money in order to sign, but that's probably the only way. IF he's ready to sign and start working with an org in rehabbing his arm, I have to imagine someone is popping him before the end of the round. As far as targets, I think Boston will play the board depending on how things unfold. I think I noted some possibilities earlier on -- Derek Fisher seems like the a great fit, along with a dozen prep arms and maybe someone like Erick Fedde. (Pre-Draft Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
2014-02-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)How would you rank these SP from 2014 MLB Draft for the biggest upside: Luke Weaver, Erick Fedde, Sean Newcomb, Grant Holmes, Brandon Finnegan, Luis Ortiz,
(Silverback38 from VA)
Are these real people? Sorry, I don't do draft stuff. Not enough bandwidth to do majors, minors, AND amateur (Paul Sporer)
