DateQuestionAnswer
2019-03-18 16:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on these three players and their upside for this year: Franchy Cordero, Jeff McNeil and Ian Happ? thx
(bob from pa)
Cordero: I'm surprised the studios financed a sequel Keon Broxton. McNeil: love him as a utility bat, will have sneaky fantasy value, especially in AVG. Happ: I'm intrigued but will have to wait and see on the plate approach. Like Moncada, he takes too many strikes so should be more, not less, aggressive. (Jon Hegglund)
2018-12-12 17:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Mike. Thanks for the forum. You have tough acts to follow in Darius and Aaron. I have a challenging choice with my final keeper spot in a 12-team, NL-only, roto auction 5x5 league, standard $260 salary. We keep 12 players. I am debating keeping Manuel Margot at $6 or Ben Zobrist at $6. Franchy Cordero's presence in a crowded OF scares me off Margot a bit, but as you know, SBs are like gold and Margot's upside is great. I don't like keeping older players, but Zobrist has been very steady and appears to be in line for good PT in a prime lineup spot again and will have multi-position eligibility, which is always a plus in deep leagues. 1) Who would you keep and why? 2) What are the $ value floors/ceilings for each. Thanks for the insight!
(TC from Cincinnati)
I'd go Margot. He's been somewhat disappointing but I really like the upside with him. Zobrist was solid last year but he's getting long in the tooth and could lose playing time in '19. In only, I like buying playing time. Margot could earn $25 if everything breaks right. His floor is $10 as a part-timer. Zobrist is in the $5-18 range. (Mike Gianella)
2018-08-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)Franchy Cordero a good, late target next year?
(Sean99 from Orland Park)
Yup! Still has some growing pains to get through (those strikeouts are unsightly) but he hits the ball really freaking hard and usually that leads to good results! (Eddy Almaguer)
2018-04-16 14:00:00 (link to chat)Franchy Cordero is dripping with excitement. Do you think he can keep a regular job and if so what type of season will he have this year?
(The Lion Queen from Here)
I don't see him staying in the lineup regularly once everyone is healthy. I know that Margot was off to a slow start, but it's his job when he gets back. (Scott Delp)
2018-05-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Franchy Cordero is the the real deal, and if so what do you think is his ceiling-----he's certainly opening some eyes right now with his bat in the early going! Also, what are your thoughts about Mike Soroka and Jack Flaherty as potential top of the rotation type guys? Thx.
(bob m from pa)
I love Franchy, more than I probably should. He may settle in as a Puig type where the tools are louder than the results. Soroka and Flaherty are both good but I'm not so sure about top of the rotation. (Nicolas Stellini)
2017-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do Carlos Asuage or Franchy Cordero ever see regular playing time, whether in SD or elsewhere?
(Colin from Indy)
Have you looked at San Diego's depth chart recently? Asuaje could be a regular at this year at some point. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Pick two to round out dynasty keepers on the farm: Dustin May, Duane Underwood, Mark Appel, Thyago Viera, Adalberto Mejia, Franchy Cordero. Thanks!
(Steve from Wilmington)
My Dustin May love is well known. The rest of that list is uh, something. Mejia I guess. Ben is psychically sending me messages to tell you not to roster prospect relievers in a dynasty league. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
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).
(Oliver from Boston)
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)
2016-08-15 22:00:00 (link to chat)2 separate Padres questions 1. Do you believe Dinelson Lamet can be a decent backend starter in the majors? 2. What is your take on Franchy Cordero who is breaking out in SA? has had years of instruct hype not come to fruition
(Philip from San Diego )
Sorry for the delay, Simone Biles in the spotlight, and you stop what you're doing when she's doing what she does.

I do! I liked Lamet a lot earlier this season, and I didn't see him throw his changeup, which I've gotten okay reports on as a potentially fringe-average pitch. The fastball-slider combo is very good, and while it's not a great command profile he generates quality plane and works north-south pretty well. I'd like him more dominating dudes in the 8th inning, but there's enough there to start him 'til he gives 'em reason not to.

Franchy: I'm pretty shocked at Franchy's run since he got promoted, honestly, and I'll be all the more surprised if he maintains anything close to it. The ahtleticism and explosiveness is obvious, and he can rip hard line drives with the best of 'em. The barrel was pretty wild in my looks, though, and there were a lot of mechanical inconsistencies from start to finish that just didn't give me much confidence that he'd be able to harness it into a coherent, repeatable swing.

Lamet: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_pit.php?reportid=325
Franchy: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_bat.php?reportid=321 (Wilson Karaman)
2015-03-25 19:00:00 (link to chat)Franchy Cordero will start the year as a short stop?
(Jose from new york)
I mean I guess he could be standing where the shortstop stands but.. (Jordan Gorosh)
2015-01-15 18:00:00 (link to chat)Which low a prospect do you believe will make the most impact: Franchy Cordero, Amed Rosario, Rafael Devers, other of your choice?
(Rich from Maryland)
As much as I may drive the Amed Rosario bandwagon, I'll go with Devers here. His offensive tools are more developed and I think he could be primed for a larger breakout in 2015. (Mark Anderson)
2015-02-18 19:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Franchy Cordero has a bounce back year? His fielding has to improve, right?
(padremurph from Los Angeles)
Nothing quite broke right for Franchy out of the gate last year but there's a really good bat in there, and I'll be surprised if he doesn't take it to the Midwest League in round two. He can't make any more errors than he did last year, but this is very much a bat first profile. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2015-02-18 19:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Franchy Cordero improved anything in Eugene that will help him in his 2nd stint in the MWL? Is all the time he is spending at shortstop really worth it?
(Brandon from Phoenix)
I think the reps he's getting at shortstop are good for his development. He needs as many ground balls in a game situation as he can possibly get, and there's no better place to do that. Plenty of time to shift him elsewhere as he gets closer to the majors. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)if you had to try to pick one lottery ticket....Francisco Mejia, Ricardo Sanchez, Luiz Gohara, Jose Martinez, Franchy Cordero or Rafael Devers? Sanchez looks good but there can be some many variables from then till now, or can he take the Urias track?
(Fred from Still here)
Sanchez isn't going to be on the Urias track. he's not nearly polished enough to make those kinds of moves over the next year.

Of that group, I'd hang my hat on Devers as the one lottery ticket to pay off. He could be a complete beast. (Mark Anderson)
2014-07-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Mr. Moore - thanks as always for the time! I was hoping you'd share your thoughts on an odd troika of prospects. Victor Reyes, Franchy Cordero, and Kennys Vargas - ceilings, likelihood of reaching them, and ETA?
(dtothew from Atlanta )
I love odd troikas! Here's Ethan Purser's report on Reyes.: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_bat.php?reportid=100 Not a lot of standout tools so the hit tool will have to carry him. High risk guy but a good prospect. Franchy struggled with the adjustment to stateside ball early in the season but is now in short-season ball where he belongs. Disregard the struggles in Fort Wayne to start the season. He shouldn't have been there. Kennys Vargas is big and fun to watch, as you saw yesterday in the Future's Game. Here's Chris Mellen's report on him: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_bat.php?reportid=125He's a big time power guy that'll need it because he's stuck at first base. (Jeff Moore)
2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any updates on Franchy Cordero out of Eugene? He seems to be playing a little better in the first week.
(padremurph from Los Angeles)
Franchy has a gorgeous swing, but unfortunately, the approach left quite a bit to be desired. To be fair, he was overmatched in the MWL. He'll try again next year, and the talent is certainly there for him to succeed. He's really raw, and it was an aggressive assignment. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-05-29 19:30:00 (link to chat)Hey Ben, what would your order be of these prospects you would want in a Dynasty League? Alexander Reyes, Hunter Harvey,Francisco Mejia, Franchy Cordero, Ryan McMahon?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
Hmm, let's go Harvey, McMahon, Reyes, Cordero, Mejia. Is this Craig? These are all guys who Craig loves. (Ben Carsley)
2014-05-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Bret, what would your order be of these prospects you would want in a Dynasty League? Alexander Reyes, Hunter Harvey,Francisco Mejia, Franchy Cordero, Ryan McMahon?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
I'd go Harvey, McMahon, Reyes, Cordero, Mejia. (Bret Sayre)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)Professor Parks, what would your order be of these prospects if you had them in your farm? Alexander Reyes, Hunter Harvey,Francisco Mejia, Franchy Cordero, Ryan McMahon?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
Harvey, Reyes, Mejia, McMahon, Cordero (Jason Parks)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)Can you tell me anything about Franmil Reyes? Big and young in the Midwest League and holding his own.
(Chris from Phoenix)
I wasn't on Franmil Reyes during camp. I thought he looked 28 years-old instead of 18. Huge kid. Hulking frame. Normally I would be all over this profile, but I don't think he will hit. Of course, he's hitting very well at the full season level, and the player that I found to be dramatically superior (Franchy Cordero) was pressing and failed in his first pass at the same level. (Jason Parks)
2014-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Saw your glowing review of Franchy Cordero this morning. Do you have a guess on his big league ETA? Thanks!
(Gravybill from New York, NY)
He's not close. Love the swing and the power potential, but he's still very raw in the field. Considering the fact that his professional experience is limited to the complex level, I think 2017 is a realistic ETA. (Jason Parks)
2014-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know you saw Padres camp, because I know you had the chance to drool over Franchy Cordero. Did you get to see Joe Ross? How did he look, and do you think he'll be better than his brother?
(birdzfan52 from Baltimore)
Ross can be quite a tease, showing you easy plus (to plus-plus) velocity and a sharp slider that can miss bats. The problem is that I was drunk on the Kool-Aid last season and the pitcher I saw in camp didn't fully translate to the regular season, so I'm both optimistic based on his spring badassness yet skeptical because he likes to show a little leg in the club but it doesn't go beyond that. (Jason Parks)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)How would you rank Frenchy?
(Vic from Dumfries)
Assuming you mean Franchy Cordero, I'm a big fan. Saw him take an at-bat in spring training and while that's not much to go on, the reports are positive. I recently ranked him aggressively in Ben and my introductory Dynasty Dynamics column, which should give you some idea. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)Are there any position players off of top 100 lists that you like to take a huge step forward in 2014? Franchy Cordero seems like an obvious name, for sure. Anyone else jump out to you?
(kfazio from WV)
I threw out one in Ervin before, but this is exactly what I wrote about for the Futures Guide - something I'm really proud to be a part of. There's a ton of great content, both prospect and fantasy wise, in it. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)Most future fantasy value (please rank): Tim Anderson, Raimel Tapia, Francisco Mejia, Stephen Piscotty, Franchy Cordero, Hunter Renfroe
(McClane from Nakatomi Plaza)
Tapia, Mejia, Piscotty, Cordero, Anderson, Renfroe but that's not the order I'd draft them in (Craig Goldstein)
2014-01-17 10:00:00 (link to chat)You mentioned Franchy Cordero as a guy you really liked and you had him as an On-The-Rise guy in the Padres system. How does he profile defensively? Is he going to outgrow SS or does he have the tools to stay there?
(Liam from Dallas)
Likely to outgrow shortstop, but the bat profiles well at third. He could really develop legit game power down the line. (Jason Parks)
2013-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any hitting prospects of note for the Padres who isn't named Hedges or Liriano?
(Art from San Diego)
Hunter Renfroe. The group of hitters down in the AZL this year was very strong. The Padres don't have a lot of potential impact offensive talent in their system, but that AZL group of Franchy Cordero, Franmil Reyes, Peterson, Jose Urena, etc. was solid. I'm iffy on a couple of those guys but really liked Franchy Cordero. (Jason Cole)
