|2016-09-12 23:00:00 (link to chat)||Greg Allen, Franchy Cordero and Ramon Laureano all carried over their production after reaching AA this season. LaMonte Wade, Magneuris Sierra and Cedric Mullins hope to do the same in 2017. Rank these by likelihood of becoming an above-average everyday player, and by which will have the most exciting peak season (wearing rose-colored glasses).|

|I was really impressed with Allen in a couple looks this year. I don't think he's an impact fantasy player or anything, but he has great feel to use his speed on the bases and his approach is excellent, to where he should be able to get on base, steals some bags, and score some runs. Franchy...I'm really surprised at his outburst at AA, frankly. He's got a ton of athleticism and quick-twitch to him, but both the swing and approach were real suspect in High-A. Never bet against athletes, but I put a 30 on his hit tool for a reason. And Laureano's a solid player who improved legitimately during his stint at Lancaster, which is not always easy to do. He's not as elite a speedster (or power guy) as the numbers this year would suggest, but there's a second-division profile there. I'd go Allen, Laureano, Cordero out of those guys. (Wilson Karaman)|

|I am the high man on the A's toolsy CF Skye Bolt at the moment. He combines three well above-average tools (Arm, Defense, Speed) and the bat has a chance to play. He has shown a more disciplined approach so far this year and he has bat speed.
As for players you may want to keep an eye on; LaMonte Wade for the Twins, Anthony Hermelyn for the Astros and Carlos Belonis for the Brewers. (James Fisher)
|2016-05-31 19:00:00 (link to chat)||Lamonte Wade got off to a fast start. How does his age match up in high A ball? How does he grade out as a prospect?|
(Prroscher from Minneapolis )
|He's right in line age wise for the league and brings a nice approach at the plate. He's most likely a fourth outfielder but the pop in the bat gives me pause on that forecast. (James Fisher)|

|Good question. I think he might be a guy you hit at the top of the order. He was a steal in the ninth round, and Minnesota has done as good of job as anyone of developing these talents the last five years. He could be a sleeper for those of you who partake in the fantasy world. (Christopher Crawford)|
