DateQuestionAnswer
2012-05-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are some prospects at RP that you like (are there any)?
(McPaine from St. Paul)
There's rarely such a thing as a RP "prospect." The good pitching prospects generally start out in the rotation, and if they can't hack it, they move into the bullpen. That said, there are certainly some relievers in Triple-A that could prove valuable to an AL or NL-only team. Don't count on them for saves anytime soon, but they could provide good ratios. A few off the top of my head: Eduardo Sanchez was just recalled by St. Louis and has good stuff. Juan Abreu is interesting in Houston if he can improve his control. I like Zach Putnam for Colorado. Nick Hagadone's been up and down for Cleveland this year. Jose Ceda is out for 2012 (Tommy John) but is interesting next year, perhaps even getting in the saves mix at some point. (Derek Carty)
2011-07-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think the Indians, and to a lesser extent the Pirates, have a good chance to be divisional contenders next year as well?
(bigcity from NY)
Based on the divisions they're in: definitely. Indians still need another SP or two to take another step forward, but I like where they're at as a unit. Carlos Carrasco is a big key for me. He's turning into a very good SP. Plus as good as their bullpen is, Nick Hagadone's been good and Adam Miller's pitching again at AA which is a great story to root for (his Twitter avatar is a picture of the finger)

Pirates, I say 2013 could look really good. Cole, Tallion in the rotation: They have a system filled with mid-back of the rotation arms who could fill what they already have at the big league level. And you know what? I kinda like James McDonald. Not as an ace, but as a solid big league starter.

Cleveland's in a great spot because they'll be there right before KC's guys start to really make an impact, CHW is aging. Twins are, well, I respect the hell out of them because they just defy some logic and grind out every pitch. (Mike Ferrin)
2009-10-09 13:30:00 (link to chat)Can Nick Hagadone develop enough secondary stuff to be a solid starter, or is he destined to be a (potential) back-end reliever? I know he's been on severe pitch count limits because of UCL replacement, but I'm wary that all he is is hard stuff.
(buffum from Austin TX)
He does rely on a fastball/slider combo, but Cleveland is going to try to turn him into a starter first, knowing that a late-inning power lefty out of the pen is still in their back pocket. Guy really does have some monster stuff. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)BA was really bullish on Bosox prospect Nick Hagadone for next year, despite his TJ surgery this year. Have we really reached the point where a major injury/surgery like that can be viewed as just a set-back? It seems like TJ surgery has come a long way in a short time; are there any other procedures that look to make the same progress?
(Rob from Brighton)
I dont know much about Hagadone, but we just had Casey Weathers on the Top 11 BPR and he's coming off very recent TJ. It's predictable, so I think it doesn't hurt someone's stock as much as something unpredictable would. Other procedures are getting better and quicker across the board. Without getting political, the idea that the Obama administration is going to open up stem cell research could be the biggest change. I did an article for Popular Science recently and in talking about the future of sports medicine, damn near every answer started with 'stem cells.' (Will Carroll)
