BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-01-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)Who are some young RP prospects that make an impact in the majors this season?
(ColeWhittier from Pasadena, CA)
I hate this question, just because this is a guessing game that has as much to do with opportunity and the ineffectiveness of others in a bullpen as it does with any prospect relievers. Corey Knebel in Milwaukee interests me because the opportunity is there, and by law we have to root for Kyle Barraclough because George Bissell likes him (Mike Gianella)
2014-07-24 19:00:00 (link to chat) As you probably know Corey Knebel just got traded to the Texas Rangers. Is he still worth stashing on my dynasty team in the hopes he becomes a closer? Detroit drafted him with the idea that he could close eventually or at least that the word they were putting out there. He had an excellent reputation as a college closer. Who is going to get saves now in Texas? Neil Cotts? Neftali Feliz? Will the Rangers seek a 'name' closer in the off season?
(Shoeless Joe from Wisconsin)
I think he's worth the long play given Feliz's health track record and Knebel's ability (that's a real damn hammer) but I would be quick on the trigger to cut him if you need a piece. Closers are the most fungible fantasy asset. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-05-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)Can you tell me anything about Corey Knebel? Any chance that the Tigers convert him to a starter?
(cracker73 from Florida)
Just about zero chance. But he could be a dominant reliever. His one-two punch is electric. (Bret Sayre)
2013-06-07 10:30:00 (link to chat)How quickly can the Tigers three picks last night help out? All are college guys, close to majors?
(Mark from Toledo)
Detroit grabbed Jonathon Crawford (rhp, Florida), Kevin Ziomek (lhp, Vandy) and Corey Knebel (rhp, Texas) with their three day one selections, and all have their share of evaluators who feel they are bullpen arms long term. Ziomek is still partaking in college ball (Super Regionals this weekend, followed by Omaha if Vandy wins) so his pro load will depend on when he signs and how many innings he's thrown. Knebel will flash "now" stuff that can get out MLB bats, but in my opinion is too inconsistent to be trusted with meaningful innings this year. He could be ready at some point next year. I'd assume Crawford was drafted with starting in mind. He'll need some minor league innings to try and find more command of his stuff--maybe a 2015 ETA? (Nick Faleris on the MLB Draft)
