BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-09-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which Braves pitcher has the highest upside ?
(Jason from Charlotte)
Greg Maddux.

I dunno, man. I can tell you who intrigues me the most, just because of the narrative around them selecting him at the time and his pro success to date. That's Ian Anderson. But I'll leave questions of the absolute highest ceiling to our prospect gurus. (Matthew Trueblood)
2017-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Sixto Sanchez or Ian Anderson?
(Carlo from California)
Sixto. And yeah, I've seen the reports on Anderson this year. They are great. He's a great prospect. Sixto. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-09-08 19:00:00 (link to chat)Which Braves pitching prospect has the ace/#2 potential based on strikeout pitches?
(Harry from Lancaster, PA)
I've been extremely encouraged with what I've seen of Ian Anderson, who the team selected just a few months ago in the top five. However, I'm going with 19-year-old southpaw Kolby Allard. He's struck out greater than a batter per inning at Single-A Rome this season while posting a 3.73 ERA in just over 60 innings. It blows my mind that 13 teams passed on him in the 2015 draft. (George Bissell)
2016-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat. Please rank these starting pitchers in terms of stuff: Dillon Cease, Thomas Szapucki, Alec Hanson, Cal Quantril, Luiz Gohara, Ian Anderson, Justin Dunn, Michael Kopech.
(Ralph from Bronx)
Hmmm...pure stuff. This is a great question.

Lets go...Alec Hanson first maybe? He doesn't throw as hard as Kopech but I think he has a better breaking ball right now in its pure form. Then Kopech, I suppose, just because of the velo. Let's say Cease third, Dunn fourth? Those guys could be reversed, too. Quantrill fifth, Ian Anderson, then Gohara, then Szapucki. All these guys have great stuff though. (Adam McInturff)
