BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-11-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any personal preferences among the back-end starter types in the White Sox system? E.g. Jordan Stephens, Spencer Adams, Jordan Guerrero, Ian Clarkin. I am exempting Dane Dunning from this list as I think he's better than this group.
(nschaef from NYC)
I kind of like Spencer Adams despite it absolutely not being the kind of profile that usually does anything. Can I write-in A.J. Puckett? (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-12-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Kenny, thanks for chatting today. Who's your big sleeper in the Yankees system I should invest in for my dynasty team?
(Jose from San Antonio)
You're very welcome Jose. I'm not the resident fantasy guy, but I kind of like Ian Clarkin, if you can consider him under the radar. If you want *really* under the radar, Tyler Wade is a five-tool player who just barely has the tools. Kind of boring, but smells like the kind of guy that will be consistently average. That might be worth something. (Kenny Ducey)
2016-06-20 16:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give me the names of a few prospects, outside of the Top 101, that have the highest upside?
(cracker73 from Florida)
LHP Ian Clarkin, RHP Tyler Mahle, SS Kevin Newman (Steve Givarz)
2016-05-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Kenny. Are there any Low Minor Yankee Prospects you are higher are then others who haven't been discussed?
(Jerry from Earth)
Hey Jerry. I think Ian Clarkin has some upside as a 'low minor' prospect. I also think we don't talk about Jacob Lindgren enough. He still has a lot of strikeout upside to me. (Kenny Ducey)
2015-02-04 19:00:00 (link to chat)Better pitching prospect this time next year: Luis Severino or Ian Clarkin?
(jnyy from Oregon)
Severino has much better stuff, although it's certainly not a guarantee he sticks in the rotation. Three starter-quality pitches, but the body and mechanical profile is difficult to believe in. Stiff front leg, inconsistent release point. Still, Clarkin is more of a back-end guy, and you can at least dream on Severino. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm a Yankee fan...tell me something good about Ian Clarkin. What's the ceiling and floor?
(Jagger Ropers from Seattle)
There's a lot to like. Left-handed, throwing strikes and missing bats in full-season ball at 19? Those are all good things. It's a mid-rotation profile at best and he probably settles in towards the back end, but so far so good. (Jeff Moore)
2013-06-07 10:30:00 (link to chat)What did you think of the back-to-back Yankees selections?
(Alex from Anaheim)
I liked what New York did. Jagielo (3b, Notre Dame) is a little higher probablity with left handed pop (will be great for Yankee Stadium). Then, with the back-to-back picks, they went risk/upside with Judge and then popped one of the best lefty arms in the class with Ian Clarkin. They landed real ceiling, which is great in that spot of the draft. (Nick Faleris on the MLB Draft)
2013-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)who's the top prep pitcher in this year's draft? ball? stewart?
(samiam from wisconsin)
It's a mystery, to be honest. No standout dominant force. Ball and Stewart are both interesting for different reasons; both are similar in that there is heavy refinement needed. Ian Clarkin (LHP) and Jordan Sheffield (RHP) really finished the summer/fall strong. Casey Shane showed well down in Jupiter at the WWBA World Championship, hosted by Perfect Game. Lots of names in the mix, no real front runner for me right now. (Nick Faleris)
