BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-06-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)Tyler Glasnow is not learning anything in Triple A. I think they need to bring him up and let him start and figure it out at the major league level instead of Chad Kuhl.
(Hector from Denver)
I don't mind giving him a few weeks to catch his breath -- he was really getting crushed and looking awful doing it. I might be more inclined to give him a month of middle-leverage relief work and see how that looks than to throw him back in the rotation, but when top prospects go that far south there aren't easy answers. (Jarrett Seidler)
2016-09-08 19:00:00 (link to chat)Tirado, Tuki, and Mitch Keller, who's primed for the bigger step forward and who has the bigger upside?
(Jquinton82 from NY)
Keller for me and it's not that close. He was exceptional (2.35 ERA with 131 strikeouts and just 18 walks in 130 IP) at West Virginia in the South Atlantic League. He's only 20-years-old and I trust the Pirates development system. They've churned out a ton of quality arms recently. Obviously Taillon & Glasnow head that list but Chad Kuhl and others have come through and made an impact as well. (George Bissell)
