DateQuestionAnswer
2017-07-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Chris Flexen next Mets pitcher prospect that flies under the radar and becomes a solid big league pitcher?
(Xavier from Brooklyn)
Interesting name Xavier... I missed Flexen in his short time in High-A... He could be, a few industry guys have mentioned him previously. keep an out on Merandy Gonzalez and Christian James. don't know if they're under the radar though. (Javier Barragan)
2017-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Merandy Gonzalez has taken the Sally league by storm, is he a top 100 pospect next year ?
(Todd from Charlestown, WV)
Where are the strikeouts? (George Bissell)
2016-11-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Jarrett--- big fan of the podcast. Can you rank Curtis Granderson, Jay Bruce and Juan Lagares in terms of trade value? Also, can you give me an idea of what each could fetch in a trade, in Mets prospect terms (so I can better understand)? For example, maybe Jay Bruce gets you a Merandy Gonzalez type prospect, idk.
(Ruby from NYC)
Granderson: maybe on the high end someone like Gavin Cecchini? I definitely think a Molina or Merandy kind of arm would be out there
Bruce: pretty much the same
Lagares: someone like Harol Gonzalez, and a lot of salary relief (Jarrett Seidler)
2016-11-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any players in Mets farm system that you think could be above average MLB relievers? Oswalt? Sewald?
(Geoff from NY)
You are best off looking at the 91-94 with a slider dudes, and the Mets have a few. Andrew Church, Merandy Gonzalez (though he has a curve), Luis Silva come to mind off the top of my head. Dunn could of course be an impact relief arm if it breaks that way. Sewald is more 87-90 with a slider, but he deserves a shot. Certainly proved me wrong every step of the way. Oswalt's fastball has just been too hittable despite flashing plus velo. Don't know if the pen helps there. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-11-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Got to watch a lot of Brooklyn Cyclones this year- can honestly say I don't remember watching a minor league team with that much talent. Justin Dunn, Desmond Lindsay, Thomas Szapucki and Peter Alonso all look like they have a chance at becoming solid major leaguers, right?
(Earl of Sandwich from Brooklyn)
I'm lower on Alonso than most, but yeah, it was a fun little squad, especially after last year's being pretty barren. I'd throw in Merandy Gonzalez too, raw and probably a reliever, but potential major league arm for sure. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-09-12 23:00:00 (link to chat)Question on a couple young guys...Merandy Gonzalez, Ronald Acuna, and Jonathan Guzman Phillies SS)...do you like Merandy as a MLB SP? Is Acuna a top 100 consideration for you this year or a potential top 25/50 guy in future years? Heard any buzz on Guzman? Stats look great at a young age.
(Festivus313 from Phoenix)
Jeff wrote a nice detailed report on Merandy earlier this summer, and it does sound like more of a 'pen arm, though a potentially very exciting one: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=29656

Acuna was discussed at some length for the end of the mid-season Top 50, and is a highly probable fit on this winter's 101, yes. David Lee wrote up a report on him the other day, lotta tools there and holy hell the raw power for a man that size: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_bat.php?reportid=397

And then re: Guzman, I checked in with Matt Winkleman over at The Good Phight on this dude (recommended follow if you're a Phillies fan, incidentally), and Guzman is a guy to watch in the basement of that org, for sure. Feel for the bat at a young age, likely shortstop, nice starter package. He's 17 and a half-decade away, but hey, you gotta start somewhere. (Wilson Karaman)
2016-08-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Jeff, over the last week, I've watched both Harol and Merandy Gonzalez pitch for Brookyln cyclones. They've both been incredibly effective but in seemingly different ways. Are these guys legit prospects? How good can they be in the bigs? Whose skill set do you think will transfer better to majors?
(Rachel from Brookyln)
I love the Gonzalii. You are right about getting it done in different ways, and there are many ways to shove in the Penn League. Harol is all polish and pitch mix, he's topped out at 91 for me, and most scouts I've talked to have him there as well, though you will hear reports of him popping a bit higher in starts occasionally. He has a decent cutter/slider and two different looks to his change. NYPL hitters won't be able to deal with that (and haven't). Merandy is the better prospect with better stuff. The fastball can get up to 97, and the four-seam sits 93-95. The curve is crude, but has good shape, and he can miss bats or get weak contact even with the command of the curve or the fastball isn't there. Merandy has the more obvious path to the majors as a two pitch reliever, and he reminds me a bit of Hansel Robles. Harol is fun to watch pitch, but I don't know what that profile looks like in Double-A, or if his frame/stuff holds up when he has to throw 120 in full-season next year. There's a reason I call him Pedrocito. And it isn't just the hair and the #45.

We call everyone in the minors "prospects" nowadays, but for context, Merandy would be around 15 or so on a Mets team list, Harol in the 20s. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-08-15 22:00:00 (link to chat)Mets seem to have an abundance of low level pitching prospects- Thomas Szapucki, Justin Dunn, Merandy Gonzalez, Andrew Chruch are some of the better ones. Do you really like any of those guys/how does each profile in MLB?
(Cole from Jersey City)
Jarrett caught Szapucki recently and came away gushing about the FB and projection. And Jeff wrote about both Dunn and Gonzalez this summer, with both - especially the former - showing intriguing and potentially faster-moving relief profiles.
