(Joel from Lawrence)
|hey Joel. I think he'll start in AAA and they'll stretch him out to start (have you seen their projected rotation). On a first division team he'd be a great super reliever candidate but I don't believe the Padres have the luxury. He's an NL-only low end guy or a reserve play in 18 or 20-team mixed.

|2017-09-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Thank you for doing this chat Nick. I have to cut one of these three guys (Daniel Norris, Matt Harvey or Matt Strahm) to make my roster legal going into the off season. Who you cutting in preparation for next year? Your thoughts on the two guys you keep for the next year? Thank you!|

|Thanks for your question, MatternK!
It's depressing, but I think I'm cutting Matt Harvey. At this point, I feel like we have to assume that thoracic outlet syndrome surgery is absolutely devastating, and Harvey's pitching since he developed TOS symptoms / post-surgery supports that position.
I've always been a Norris believer and think he could still figure things out, even if it is out of the bullpen. Strahm I don't know quite as well, and the knee injury isn't encouraging but...well, he has a chance to be good and I'm not sure Harvey does anymore. (Nick Schaefer)
|2017-03-09 20:00:00 (link to chat)||Have you guys ever experimented with pitchers who are coded as starting pitchers by Scoresheet but who will likely serve in relief roles in 2017? I am wondering if guys like David Phelps, Michael Lorenzen and Matt Strahm could be deployed as a sort of tandem fifth starter (with benefits such as switching handedness against a platoon-heavy team and potential lower ERAs). Does Scoresheet force you to start a pitcher with a game started that week if there's one on your roster?|

|This is a fun strategy, and something we've done and heard others also advocate. Playing time restrictions get stricter come playoff time, so these guys aren't as likely to be starting playoff games unless they've started real life games, but during the regular season it's a fun trick to pull. In the regular season, the measurement for contribution from starters is just total innings pitched, so guys like the ones you mentioned can start for you and offer some opportunities for good draft value and stronger than expected run prevention in a starting role (since they don't face that challenge in real life).

(Daquan from Tristate)
|Lugo is a nice story and may be a quite useful major league arm now, but I don't think he'd be a 101 guy. More akin to like Matt Strahm. (The Top 101 Prospect Chat with Jeffrey Paternostro)|
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
