BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)How does Leury Garcia have a plus arm given his size?
(Brad from Bean Town)
Arm strength knows no bounds. Some guys can just let it fly thanks to arm speed and the way their anatomy works. Dixon Machado is about as thick as a #2 pencil and when he unleashes a throw it's like a freakin' carnival ride; you just sit back and say "Weeeeee!" Some guys are just blessed with the ability to chuck it. (Mark Anderson)
2013-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Jason. Shouldn't the Cubs have done better than C.J. Edwards and Leury Garcia for Garza? Since the Cubs braintrust knows what they're doing can you describe the ceilings of Edwards and Garcia. Thanks
(mmcd from ottawa)
I...think you're confused. The Cubs got Edwards, Mike Olt, Justin Grimm, and at least one (potentially two) PTBNL for Garza. That's one hell of a haul for less than half a season of Garza. Leury Garcia is a White Sox. (Jason Cole)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Are there any good underdog prospects like Jose Altuve or Tim Collins were? Guys that get second-guessed because of their size but keep on producing.
(Dobbs from Delaware)
The Rangers have two on the major league roster right now: utility man Leury Garcia and reliever Joe Ortiz. Both are very small humans. (Jason Parks)
2013-03-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any word on what the Padres offered Porcello?
(padremurph from San Diego)
There haven't been many specifics, padremurph, but we do know that the Tigers asked the Rangers about Leury Garcia and Nick Tepesch, so it sounds as though infield and pitching prospects are at the top of their wishlist. The Padres have no shortage of the latter, with one of the deepest systems in the league. (Daniel Rathman)
