BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-09-07 20:00:00 (link to chat)Which prospect do you like better Leody Taveras or Jesus Sanchez?
(Carl from TX)
Jesus Sanchez, since he's having the better season and because he wasn't nearly as highly touted going into the season as Leody Taveras. Jesus Sanchez didn't make any major Top 100 prospect lists coming into 2017 while Leody Taveras was on all of them. I expect that heading into 2018, their rankings will be pretty close to each other. (Scooter Hotz)
2017-09-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which prospect do you like better Leody Taveras or Jesus Sanchez?
(Carl from TX)
Big fan of Taveras, even if the tools haven't translated statistically quite yet. (Collin Whitchurch)
2017-08-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)How concerned are you with Leody Taveras's recent struggles at the plate?
(Leo from SF)
Taveras is the exact reason I hate projecting 18 year olds. He did have that one great run in rookie ball! But other than that his line has looked...fine but not telling in any way. Which is why the scouting, the history, etc are meaningful.

This is a long way of saying that his struggles probably matter, but not within the context of his stat line. If scouts are saying he looks markedly worse than he did when he was a top 50 prospect, then you start worrying. Until then, assume he's just getting bigger and better. (Trevor Strunk)
2017-07-25 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is Leody Taveras a future top 10 prospect? Better real life player than fantasy?
(Mike from Atlanta)
Quite possibly, some people are really high on him. Probably a better real life player though. The glove lifts his floor up a lot. That isn't to say he won't be a good fantasy player though.
-Emmett (Emmett Rosenbaum & Nathan Graham)
2017-07-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Leody Taveras - a future top 10 prospect?
(Dave from TX)
He has the tools. I'd like to see what a full season looks like before jumping him that high, however. (Mark Barry)
2017-06-13 12:00:00 (link to chat)So is Leody Taveras' .256/.304/.372 line still fine considering he's 19 in single-A? Seems a little lackluster, but I know he's seen as a very highly regarded prospect.
(Chris from Arlington, TX)
Yes, it's absolutely still fine. He's actually still 18 and all the tools are the same. Some guys take some time to develop and adapt. I'm not worried about Leody. (Craig Goldstein)
2017-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Leody Taveras the truest 5-tool outfield prospect in baseball at the moment?
(Tyler from Texas)
If there can be only one, give me Victor Robles and a big ol' claymore. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-03-23 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is there a possibility of Leody Taveras going away from switch hitting. Looks very unnatural from the right side. Do you know if hes got more power from one side or is it even?
(Mike from Toronto )
I haven't heard anything about a change like that, but by just glancing at his splits it does look like he's a lot better against right-handed pitching, more power (well, at least a higher Slug%, anyway). (Mark Barry)
2017-02-14 12:00:00 (link to chat)Favorites for 2018 top prospect?
(Mark from US)
Moncada, Robles, Rosario, Jimenez, are the highest guys most likely to still be list-eligible. I could see any of the four taking it. If you want someone further down, how about a crafty quid on Leody Taveras? (The Top 101 Prospect Chat with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-02-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Think Texas starts Leody Taveras in Hickory?
(David from Colorado)
If he performs well in the spring, yes. Texas hasn't shown a hesitation to push their young position player prospects before, especially if they're confident in their ability to handle failure. (Kate Morrison)
