BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)Aaron Altherr is 0-3. Should I be concerned? Also, who is Aaron Altherr?
(gerrybraun from San Diego)
He's a phillie so trade him. (Mauricio Rubio)
2013-05-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are Cleveland's Danny Salazar and Philly's Aaron Altherr the legitimate break-out players that they have suggested with their performances so far this season?
(El Bobbo from Canton, Mi)
I really like Salazar and think he has a chance to be legit. Ive never been high on Altherr and I'm just not buying it yet. I'll probably be late to the dance and forced to snuggle alone, but I've just never found Altherr to be the toolsy demon that some do. I don't see it even though I probably should. I guess he's just not my type. (Jason Parks)
2013-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Aaron Altherr has to be one of the few bright spots for the Phillies this year. His bat is still unknown, but his defensive ability should be understood by now. Is Altherr a solid defensive center fielder in MLB?
(Free_AEC from New Jersey)
I saw Altherr in Lakewood last year over a four-game look, and I know our Zach Mortimer has seen a lot of him over the last couple years. He probably ends up as a corner guy down the line. Mortimer saw him in camp and told me that he's still a bit raw with his route-running, but he thinks Altherr will be fine in RF in the long run. (Jason Cole)
2011-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)What can you tell us about Aaron Altherr?
(Bobby from Philly)
Lots. Great size, but needs to grow into his body and add strength. Power potential in the swing, with a god hit tool. Loads of athleticism. I'm a fan. High ceiling. (Jason Parks)
