BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-05-16 23:00:00 (link to chat)Looking at Swanson's skill set and minor league stats, am I crazy to think that we have a potential A.J. Pollock? Average power and above average speed with that strikeout rate sounds familiar.
(OddBall Herrera from At a Computer)
Swanson's another one I loved last year and will forever be linked to Bregman in my head. They're similar in their polish and general ability to max out their (extremely impressive) natural talent. He's done nothing but improve, most notably in extracting more power out of his swing. It's not easy to make on-the-fly adjustments like that, and he hasn't missed a beat in the last two years I've watched him progress. Offensively I can see some of that comp, though I don't see quite as many bags. (Wilson Karaman)
2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)Anthony Alford is getting a lot of hype. What kind of stat line could we see if everything clicks?
(ED from C-falls)
Alford deserves the hype, he's an unbelievable athlete and a former standout football player in Mississippi. My BP colleague Greg Wellemeyer was all over him last spring, so props Greg! A best-case scenario would be a guy who has the speed to swipe 30-40 bases at the big league-level. His speed is going to be his biggest fantasy contribution, but he's got the ability to provide a little pop and hit for a decent average too. If he becomes A.J. Pollock that's the ultimate best-case... (George Bissell)
2015-11-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)David Peralta put up some big 2nd half numbers. His babip was obviously high, but hard hit % and exit velocity were also high. What do you expect from him in 2016? Thanks.
(Bill from Trenton)
Someone asked me who the most underrated player in baseball was right now and my answer was Peralta's OF-mate A.J. Pollock. Now, Peralta isn't likely to break out like Pollock did this year, but I think he has a nice skill set and will be a solid guy for a while. I'd love to see the K rate come down, but it seems like he's trading some Ks for hard contact, and it's worked so far. The tie between Exit Velo and BABIP is loose still, but I don't think he's due for a full-on regression to a replacement level guy. A couple win player, largely on offense, seems about right. (Jeff Long)
2015-03-12 15:00:00 (link to chat)Breakout player pick?
(Ronson from On the Scratches)
A.J. Pollock. I'll say he could hit 3-4 wins if it all comes together. (Andrew Koo)
2014-09-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give us any possible breakout candidates for next season from a dynasty baseball league perspective?
(Jake from MI)
I hope A.J. Pollock gets healthy and gets another long look next year, he could be a 15/20 type of guy in that ballpark. Same with his teammate Chris Owings. Those two come quickly to mind. (Cory Schwartz)
2012-10-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)What happened to Chris Young (Ari) this year? Will A.J. Pollock and Adam Eaton earn some PT this year?
(Tommy from Flowmont)
Hi Tommy, thanks for the question. I don't think Young ever recovered from his early-season injury. He got off to that great start, then missed a bunch of time, and wasn't right the rest of the year. Seems like the Diamondbacks sold low there, but they know more about their player than I do. Pollock and Eaton are logical candidates to soak up some of his at-bats in 2013. Neither projects as a star but both are as ready as they'll ever be. (Geoff Young)
