BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-05-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Robbie Erlin? Does he have much upside?
(cracker73 from Florida)
I think that the upside is limited, but southpaws who command the zone can have a long shelf life in the back half of a big-league rotation. (Doug Thorburn)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any of these guys going to wind up more than back-end fodder? Sean Nolin, Robbie Erlin, Jimmy Nelson, Alex Wood, Oberholtzer, Holmberg, Taylor Jordan, Maurer, Enny Romero, Alex Colome.
(TheKernel from Pasadena)
Don't sleep on Enny Romero. I think there is a better chance of him providing impact in the bullpen, but I've been working on the Rays system lately and scouts really like this kid's stuff; I've seen it several times myself, so I can definitely appreciate a mid-90s FB and hard breaking ball from a southpaw. The command concerns, but if he can develop into an effectively wild type, he has the stuff to pitch above the middle-of-a-rotation. Projection is #2/3 type, but I think a late-innings arm is the realistic role. (Jason Parks)
2013-11-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Robbie Erlin closed the season 32 IP 1.96 ERA 1.06 WHIP 24 K 7 BB, but with the Josh Johnson signing appears out of the mix in SD. Kennedy, Ross, Johnson, and Cashner are givens. Then you have Stults, Luebke, Wieland, and Burch Smith to contend with. What does SD do? Trade Cashner? Just keep the depth in AAA?
(Joe Rockpile from Tuscaloosa)
Keep. The. Depth. JJ and Cash are both health risks, and an outstanding name combo for a late 70s buddy cop show. (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)If this list went to 100, would Robbie Erlin make the cut?
(Craig from SoCal)
Probably not (Jason Parks on the Midseason Top 50 Prospects)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Aroyds Vizcaino is a good bet to contribute in 2014? What about Padres pitching prospects Robbie Erlin and Joe Wieland? Any chance any are rotation bound next year? I've got them all as minor leaguers in a deep NL-only 12 team keeper league, hoping at least one pans out as a middle of the rotation arm.
(brokenarrow from Texas)
I'm done on Vizcaino, never really loved him. He's gotta prove something to me. LOVE Erlin and like Wieland as well. I think both can contribute, maybe even later this year if needs arise for SD, but definitely next year. (Paul Sporer)
2012-12-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Which minor league prospect do you feel has similar stuff, K%, BB%, GB% to Kris Medlen of the Braves? Clayton Blackburn? Thanks for the chat!
(John from Kansas City)
Hey, John. Professor Parks and the minor-league gang probably have a better read on this stuff, but if you're looking for raw peripherals, Blackburn does seem to fit the bill. Two others to keep an eye on: Rangers RHP Cody Buckel, who found a groove late after struggling initially in Double-A, and Padres LHP Robert Erlin. (Daniel Rathman)
