BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-05-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)How good a fantasy prospect is Kyle Freeland?
(moehk21 from Ann Arbor)
He's good and if he was with a different team we would like him even more, but since he's with the Rockies expectations should be tempered somewhat. He has the potential for three above-average pitches and throws lots of strikes, which will be good for his strikeout and walk numbers, but Coors Field will ultimately sully his ratios. He could be up next year. (Nick Shlain)
2015-03-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)How good is Kyle Freeland?
(Swamp Gator from Jacksonville)
Very good. Two 60 pitches and a potential 50. I don't love the arm-slot, but this isn't a Medeiros situation, in my opinion. I think he'll be a top of the rotation starter. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-02-09 20:00:00 (link to chat)Considering the fact that most would argue that a #3/4 type starter is more valuable than a shutdown closer, what is the argument for Nick Burdi being on the list ahead of young arms like Joe Ross,Michael Feliz and Edwin Diaz? Is there a big difference between the arms I listed and pitchers like Kyle Freeland and Grant Holmes?
(Brandon from AZ)
Probability (though I'd maybe quibble with the statement that a #4 starter is more valuable with a true shutdown reliever). Burdi's likelihood of being a shutdown closer is much greater than the probability that Ross/Feliz/Diaz become mid-rotation arms. And he's closer, from a developmental standpoint, as well. Upside/probability combo favors both Freeland/Holmes over the trio you mentioned, and I'd be willing to bet Freeland/Holmes could both handle themselves in a big league pen right now, which I wouldn't necessarily say with the same conviction for Ross/Feliz/Diaz. (Top 101 Chat)
2014-06-09 12:00:00 (link to chat)With Jon Gray and Eddie Butler already, how do you rank Kyle Freeland in the organizational future rotation? Does he have the stuff to supplant one of these two at the top of the rotation?
(Silverback38 from VA)
He has a chance but will need to improve his execution and precision in the zone. It's a very good control profile without elite command. The stuff will play in the middle of a rotation and there is enough deception to potentially bump him to a #2 profile if you are a believer. I think at present he slots as the third best arm out of that trio. (Draft Wrap Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
2014-06-05 14:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give a quick rundown on Kyle Freeland? Are the elbow concerns the only reason he seems to have fallen in the past few weeks (BA had him outside the top ten in their mock today)?
(Alan from IN)
He had a very off day in his MVC tourney start (my video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VX-lpJSzmPo&feature=youtu.be ) and believe it or not that may have impacted a couple of the high level decision-makers in attendance. My understanding is that there is a split camp as to the medicals, with org policy basically governing how much risk, if any, to assign. He could certainly slip, but he's also a worthy top ten target.

Okay, sorry I'm not keeping up with all of the questions. Going to step away for about 90 minutes as I change venue and set up shop for this evening. Thanks for your time and see you again around 6pm eastern! (Draft Day Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
2014-06-05 14:00:00 (link to chat)Seriously, the Rockies since 2008 have drafted in the first round Rex Brothers, Christian Friedrich, Tyler Anderson and now Kyle Freeland. All Collee LHP, is this a theme of taking these low-ceiling players?
(Wesley from Utah)
I wouldn't call Freeland low-ceiling. Has legit plus stuff and fills up the zone with it. Good performance arm with the scouting card to back it up.

Have to step away for about 20 mins on a couple of calls. Be back... (Draft Day Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
2014-05-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)Are Kyle Freeland's mechanics an injury risk?
(Bryce from Hyperspace)
That's a question for Doug Thorburn. I think his arm action scares some folks, and teams' preferences might come down to how they interpret his medicals. (Pre-Draft Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
