BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 There were murmurs early in the season that Delgado was tipping his pitches, with batters able to see more white on the ball during his delivery on curveballs. If the observation is true, and thereís no reason to believe it isnít, then youíd be hard-pressed to find proof of it in the numbers, which remained constant throughout the year. Pitch-tipping or not, Delgado projects to become a third starter behind his fastball-curveball combination. Should he live up to the billing, the comparisons to Jair Jurrjens of yesteryear will look silly.
2012 Delgado enters 2012 as a 22-year-old with more starts in the majors than Triple-A. The major league experience failed to expose Delgado, and that is a positive sign. Smooth arm action gives way to a fastball that can touch into the mid-90s, and Delgado shows versatility with his plus-curveball by throwing the breaker for strikes or plunging it into the dirt. Delgadoís changeup is more mundane, and he can overthrow the pitch at times, although he could develop it into a third above-average offering. Delgado may become a good teamís number two starter or a lesser teamís ace. More likely is that he takes his place as a number three starter.
2011 A long, skinny right-hander of Panamanian descent, Delgado doesn't have the ceiling of better-known prospects like Julio Teheran and Arodys Vizcaino, but he's likely closer to getting a big-league call up. Using a motion that one scout likens to that of a pie thrower, Delgado sits at 93-94 mph, can touch 96, and already has a plus secondary pitch with one of the better changeups in the system. Given some improvement in his curveball and more strikes, the Braves think he can become a physically bigger version of Jair Jurrjens.
2010 Normally, a guy with a 4.35 ERA in Low-A would be lucky to get a quick comment at the end of a team chapter, but Delgado really has a chance to be something special. A 19-year-old Panamanian with oodles of projection, Delgado can run his fastball up to 96 mph, and throws strikes with the pitch while also adding some sink and run. His future as a starter or reliever will depend on the development of his breaking ball, but either way he is one of the best young arms in the system.
2009 A skinny 19-year-old Panamanian, Randall Delgado has a low-90s sinker and a plus curve, but lacks an effective third pitch and is a long way from the majors.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-02-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Computer sim league question. Would you deal Miguel Cabrera and Randall Delgado for Wei-Yin Chen and Anthony Rizzo? Getting picks for next year too but those are the players.
(joott41 from Wisconsin)
Are you getting all of the picks? If not, no. (Jeff Moore)
2013-12-20 14:00:00 (link to chat)As part of my off season studying, I was hoping you could narrow my field of pitchers to look at. After the top 36 pitchers, what pitchers have mph difference greater than ten between their fastball and changeup pitch? Breaking pitches, I want to include the other off speed pitches in a later question after I have done some studying on my own. Thanks for clarity as always Doug. I love your work.
(allangustafson from Fun Diego)
Players that come to mind: Jeremy Hellickson, Randall Delgado, Jarrod Parker, Scott Kazmir (Doug Thorburn)
2013-11-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)What quality pitching attributes does the D-Backs' Randall Delgado bring to the mound?
(Paul from DC)
good enough fastball to really make the change a weapon. (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-11-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)Talk to me about Randall Delgado of the D-Backs. What's to like about his pitching and what's not to like about it? How much room for improvement does he have?
(Paul from DC)
I am encouraged by the improvements he made with balance (early in the delivery) and repetition in 2013, turning down the drop-n-drive a bit. That said, his balance is still rough after foot strike, and though he has solid momentum, he struggles to harness that kinetic energy. I don't like the posture, as he tries to force elevation on his release - his natural/biological arm slot is near sidearm, and even with spine-tilt his functional arm slot is pretty low, so he is compromising his delivery for minimal gains in plane. I am encouraged by the year-over-year changes, and he needs to continue to improve his balance and functional strength in order to find consistent success.

On the jukebox: The Clash, "Police On My Back" (Doug Thorburn)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Not prospects but what are your thoughts on Henderson Alvarez and Randall Delgado? Both have looked good in the handful of starts since they've been called up - can they keep it going?
(mark from arizona)
I believe so I really liked what I saw from Delgado when he came through the Carolina League as a prospect. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-05-29 18:30:00 (link to chat)In an NL-only deep Ultra dynasty league, I was recently offered Cliff Lee for Michael Wacha, Luis Valbuena, Daniel Hudson, Jameson Taillon and Chris Heisey. I thought I was being asked tp give up too much, and asked for more in return. Lee's owner then turned around and traded Lee for Randall Delgado, Dave Sappelt, Tyler Cloyd, Francisco Peguero and Khris Davis. This deal struck me as either ludicrous or retaliatory: He gave up up top starter (Lee has had four excellent starts since then) for three fifth outfielders and two fifth starters. Am I wrong to think these two offers are not on the same planet?
(gerrybraun from san diego)
Hi Gerry.

Without knowing the salaries/contracts of the players involved, I'd agree that the two offers don't compare. Taillon and Wacha are both potentially #2 starters for your future team and Hudson is a good bounce back candidate assuming health. Even if I'm being generous, I don't see how Delgado and Cloyd are going to be better than Taillon and Wacha, and the hitters really seem like bench guys who maybe start at some point if they get really, really lucky. My guess is that the deal was ludicrous rather than retaliatory, but you have every right to be annoyed at your league mate. (Mike Gianella)
2013-01-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hello, I am in a 12-team, 8-man keeper league and have six of my keepers set but am having trouble determining my last two. They are all cheap pitchers and none are ideal but ... anyways, the choices are Brandon McCarthy ($6), Justin Masterson ($5), Randall Delgado ($2) and Glen Perkins ($1). What are your thoughts? Thanks
(Tony from Minneapolis)
I like Perkins the best. He's the cheapest and there is a chance he saves some games this year. (Josh Shepardson)
2013-01-16 13:30:00 (link to chat)I heart Randall Delgado. Tell me why I shouldn't.
(Big Ted from Chicago)
I'm okay with you "hearting" him, Big Ted. Delgado is a very talented pitcher. Just don't let your imagination run too wild. He's going to be a very nice mid-rotation starter, but I don't see much more than that. (Mark Anderson)
2012-07-25 13:30:00 (link to chat)As a Nationals fan, I hope that Ryan Dempster's refusal to join the Braves is an omen for disappointments in Atlanta for the rest of the season. However, if I were a Braves fan, would you think that I should be upset or relieved that the trade of Randall Delgado didn't go through?
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
I analyzed the Dempster deal that now looks like it probably won't happen a couple days ago. My opinion was that Delgado wouldn't have been too high a price to pay, considering the stakes and Delgado's mid-rotation ceiling. That said, while a desire to keep Delgado might not have made sense as a reason not to pull the trigger, it certainly makes sense as a reason to be relieved that the deal didn't go through. (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-07-25 13:30:00 (link to chat)With the Dempster deal all but dead the Braves will almost certainly turn their attention to Greinke. As a Braves fan, I'm actually happy because I'd hate to lose Randall Delgado. Am I wrong to actually hope that Teheran gets traded away instead of Delgado or would the Brewers demand both pitchers in any Greinke deal?
(dan11995 from Atlanta, GA)
Teheran remains the higher-ceiling pitcher, and even though he might have a lesser chance of reaching his ceiling than Delgado does, I think he's still the more valuable prospect. I don't know what the Brewers would demand, but I'd be surprised if the Braves would give up both of those arms for a rental after treating them both as untouchable in 2011. (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-02-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Braves starting rotation on opening day looks like....
(Trey from Texas)
Good question. Tim Hudson just said he's going to miss the first month, so my best guess is that Jair Jurrjens, Tommy Hanson, Brandon Beachy and Mike Minor are all in there, with Randall Delgado, Julio Teheran, and perhaps Kris Medlen competing for the five spot. Wouldn't surprise me at all if the kids were to start the season in the minors because of the way that April off days limit fifth starters anyway. (Jay Jaffe)
2012-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)What numbers would you expect Randall Delgado to produce this year?
(JR from New Hampshire)
At Triple-A? The Braves rotation is so crowded right now, Delgado is probably seventh on the SP depth chart, so I wouldn't hold out for too much this year. (Derek Carty)
2011-10-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)And a follow up question on the Braves (which is weird coming from a Dodger fan): I feel like not enough is being made of their plethora of young pitching - assuming Lowe can be dealt this offseason (no mean feat, but still) the Braves go into 2012 with a five man of Hudson/Hanson/Jurrjens/Beachy/Minor (who was excellent after being recalled), with Tehran and Randall Delgado ready to step in at any time. With that pen and an assumed return to form for Heyward (and Freeman's continued development), they're neck and neck with the Phillies next year, if not better. no?
(Silv from NY, NY)
Perhaps not in '12, but the Braves are setting themselves up to be the alpha team in the NL for a very long time. If they can stay healthy and the young talent develops as planned, the 90s Braves cometh! (Jason Parks)
2011-06-29 13:30:00 (link to chat)Who are the most likely Braves to be traded away at the deadline? Mike Minor, Randall Delgado, Bethancourt? Please tell me that Tehran's going nowhere.

There is no way they trade Teheran. I'd say they'd let Minor go in the right deal, though. (John Perrotto)
2011-06-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jason, what's your take on the Braves decision to promote Randall Delgado over Julio Teheran? Just a timing thing or does this speak to how highly they regard Delgado as well? What is Delgado's ceiling? Thanks...

Delgado is a very nice prospect (some scouts actually like him more than Teheran long-term), but I'm not reading into the promotion. (Jason Parks)

(Dave from rome)
Very, VERY legit. Really only a notch below Teheran and Vizcaino. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-12-29 15:00:00 (link to chat)Melky and Randall Delgado for Josh Vitters. Who says no? Braves get unload one of their several teenage arms for a more solid position prospect, Cubs get their CF. Braves clear $3M while dealing from their wealth of CFers.

That would be funny, like regifting a coffee table book for a Secret Santa and receiving a Wii in exchange. (Joe Sheehan)
