BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-08-08 17:30:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Andre Rienzo and Danny Salazar over the rest of the season and future?
(Evan from Hamilton)
I talked about Salazar earlier. I like him a lot. From what I've seen, his stuff is legitimate and he shows no fear. He's probably going to get shut down at some point this year, but long term he could be a mid-tier guy right off the bat with an even better ceiling.

Bret Sayre wrote up Rienzo today at BP (here: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=21406). I pretty much agree with Bret. Rienzo is probably a back-end guy long-term and he might even wind up a reliever. He has been murder on righties for most of his professional career, but I see him as a #4 or a #5. Salazar is the clear upside guy for me; I don't think it's particularly close either. (Mike Gianella)
