2017-08-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)30 team fantasy league where all minor leaguers are owned. Would you trade Dakota Hudson and TJ Zeuch for Keibert Ruiz? Thinking being the pitchers upside are moderate and keibert could one day be a top 5 catcher if everything breaks right
(Bob from Bobathonia)
Yeah I think I'd do that. I'm the kind of fantasy player who'll always trade minor league pitchers. When they hit it can be a little embarrassing, but more often than not they kind of flame out or don't live up to their potential. Now, admittedly, catchers can be even worse. However, if you're patient and willing to wait, a project catcher can be a wonderful little asset to let mature on yr bench.

Worst case scenario, you have someone who you can flip down the line on potential. I like it. (Trevor Strunk)
2017-07-31 23:00:00 (link to chat)What is the ceiling for Keibert Ruiz?
(cracker73 from Florida)
I've held off long enough. I've only caught a couple games so far, I'm due for more Rancho this week. I really liked what I saw an awful lot, though. His glove was supposed to be behind his bat from what I'd heard, but I thought the receiving and movement was well advanced for a catcher his age. He's got really strong wrists, both for framin' and for accurate barrel delivery. I have no conclusions to offer yet, but first impressions here (make sure you're sitting down): http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=32306 (Wilson Karaman)
2017-07-31 23:00:00 (link to chat)How excited should I be about Keibert Ruiz? Is he capable of becoming an elite prospect?
(Matt from LA)
I will reiterate: very. (Wilson Karaman)
2017-07-25 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is Keibert Ruiz a top 100 prospect?
(CCA from LA)
I don't think he's quite there yet, but he is making an impressive case for himself. Depends on what kind of power numbers he puts up the rest of the season I think. -Emmett (Emmett Rosenbaum & Nathan Graham)
2017-07-25 20:00:00 (link to chat)Keibert Ruiz is starting to get some hype in the Dodgers org. Where would you rank him for dynasty catching prospects?
(Cam from Dallas)
He is deservedly being hyped, but I'm not sure if he's the best fantasy prospect. I think he has a solid hit tool, but I feel there is very limited power potential due to his swing path. He looks like he is trying to prove me wrong in Rancho, but I still don't know if it's a great fantasy profile. His advanced defense is part of what makes him a good prospect. -Emmett (Emmett Rosenbaum & Nathan Graham)
2017-07-25 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is Keibert Ruiz the next big "catchers are weird BUT..." prospect? Seems like one of the few exceptions to the rule where the bat could play elsewhere and/or they look like they can stick behind the plate.
(Steve from LA)
Yeah. I think Ruiz sticks behind the plate, and I know Wilson Karaman been impressed with his defense up in Rancho too. Like I said though, I think his power potential is pretty limited, but he can hit. -Emmett (Emmett Rosenbaum & Nathan Graham)
2017-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi, thanks for your great work. I'm excited about the new BP team and for baseball to start! I'm looking for a catching prospect I can target. I'm at least 2 years away from competing in my dynasty league (2 C league) so i can take a risk if needed (not that catching isn't risky, but you know what I mean). Caratini, Zach Collins, Mitch Garver, Bruce Maxwell, Josmil Pinto, Keibert Ruiz, and Jose Trevino are all on my waiver / draft board. Which of those guys (or someone else) do you think could not murder my team, or maybe even contribute!, and will stay a C? Thanks for any input.
(madjockmcferson (simon mcpherson) from Norton, MA)
Literally have not seen Josmil Pinto's name in a while. How deep is this dynasty league. Collins is the guy to target, he may not end up a catcher long term (it wasn't easy to find people who thought he'd stick when doing the White Sox stuff), but if he does the offensive potential here smokes everyone else.

As for the rest, a lot of people asked about Maxwell on the A's list, and I think he is a better real life player than fantasy. Graver has some helium off the AFL, but he is also blocked now, and I think he's similar to Maxwell. Trevino you are betting on High Desert performance being real, which, don't do that. Keibert Ruiz is significantly more than two years awa...yeah just take Collins and hope you don't end up with a first baseman. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
