DateQuestionAnswer
2019-04-12 16:00:00 (link to chat)Why isn't every question in this chat about Vogelbach? Please talk at length about this absolute truck of a man!
(Big Person from TD Bank)
I'm delighted that we've finally got to see a Vogelbach run in the team. Destroying Triple-A for another year would have proved very little, and he was out of options anyway, so it was clearly now or never. He's *probably* not going to keep slugging over 1.000, but he's also not doing anything we didn't think he was capable of before - hitting a bunch of dingers was the one thing everyone thought he could do.

That said, if Vogelbach isn't getting on base a ton and slugging over .500 at the major league level then he's probably out of a regular job, because he's not going to give the team any defensive or baserunning value. If he's still a clearly above-average hitter when Kyle Seager gets back, then you'd like to think that Ryon Healy goes down and he sticks around - that is, if Jerry Dipoto hasn't traded him by that point. (Darius Austin)
2019-03-14 15:00:00 (link to chat)How excited are you for Ryon Healy: Thirdbaseman?
(godsocks from Seattle)
On Monday I spent a good portion of my day finishing up a project I had worked on most of the weekend for work. When I went to save and submit it, I discovered that it had somehow erased all of my work, and I had to start from the beginning. As I loaded up the data to start again, I felt the exact same feeling I feel about Ryon Healy: Thirdbaseman (Go Mariners) (Nathan Bishop)
2017-08-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you were starting a team and had a choice between Ryon Healy, Oak 3B, Nicky Delmonico, CWS 3B and Chris Taylor, LAD, 2 out of the 3 what would your pick be for 3B and why?
(OB1 from Tampa)
Oh man, Taylor by a mile, then Healy. I like Delmonico, happy he overcame what he did to reach the Majors, but Taylor is way out in front of that pack. So much of what he's doing seems real. Healy might be a better bat in the long run, but he's also probably a first baseman. (Matthew Trueblood)
2017-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you do with a player like Ryon Healy if you're the A's? He showed real promise last season shooting through the minors and in a half season in the majors last year. This year, he continues to show power, but everything else -- defense, on base ability, baserunning -- is lacking. With so many other DHs on the team or on the horizon, what do the A's do with a guy like Healy? He seemingly hasn't made adjustments now that pitchers have film of him. Is .250/.280/.480 a major leaguer?
(John from San Francisco)
Yeah, things didn't really turn out there the way we might've though, eh? (Full disclosure: For those of you who follow my silliness, Healy was the 2016 Full Vogelsong Player of the Year as well as the must of August.) But he's pretty much the hitter PECOTA anticipated; we had him at .260/.291/.406, .253 TAv, before the season. He's actually been a little bit better, largely because everybody hits at least 20 home runs this year.

His performance equates to a .259 TAv so far, which is a little below average. That works on the right side of defensive spectrum, but not at the left end where Healy resides. We've got him finishing the year with 1.0 WARP on the nose, about half of last year's 1.9 in more than double the playing time. That's not good! But it's still a major leaguer.

On the other hand, it's not THAT bad. He has, to date, the fourth-highest TAv among DHs (assigning all of his plate appearances to DH, where he's played the most). That is, in case you weren't sure, totally nuts, Cruz, Encarnaction, HanRam, then Healy. Ahead of, among others, Holliday and Morales and Trumbo and Beltran and VMart and Pujols. So on a *relative* basis, he's decent for a DH. Add in the fact that he can play the two infield corners, giving him some defensive value relative to the bat-only guys, and he has some value.

But to your point--yeah, this is probably what we're going to get. (I should also note that FRAA isn't as down on his fielding as DRS and especially UZR.) He'll turn 26 in January, so there probably isn't a gang of development to go. And as you point out, on a team with Matt Olson and Matt Joyce and Jaycob Brugman and Stephen Vogt, he's a little redundant. Realistically, I'd expect him to stick with the team until there's someone on the farm who *has* to take his place. He's not old, he's cheap, and he isn't going to kill you at the corners. So he has value. (Rob Mains)
2017-09-12 23:00:00 (link to chat)Looking toward 2018, what is the A's optimal use of Matt Olson, Ryon Healy, Khris Davis, and Renato Nunez? Healy, Davis, and Nunez have no defensive value, while Olson plays first base well and right field less well. Olson has trouble hitting lefties, while Nunez and Healy hit them well. Davis is getting expensive, while Healy, Olson, and Nunez are all cheap.
(Tom from San Francisco)
My guess is that it shakes out in largely the same way in has this year. I guess they could try to trade Davis, but I'm not sure what all that profile gets them, and he's not that expensive. Healy is... limited defensively, you're not moving Chapman off third because he's actually good, and so to first it is for Olson. Renato Nunez hasn't shown he can really do stuff at the Major League level. Maybe next spring he shows something that changes the calculus; maybe you platoon first, but I don't think you plan around him. (Megan Rowley)
2017-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Looking toward next season for the A's, they've got a lot of guys who are DHs, or should be DHs. So of Khris Davis, Ryon Healy, Mark Canha, Matt Olson, and Renato Nunez, where would you put everyone?
(Dave from San Francisco)
Ooh, good question, and thanks for asking it in advance so I could look up some stuff. Let's look at age and contracts: Davis (29) arb eligible in 2018, Healy (25) 2020, Canha (28) 2018, Olson (23) 2020, Nunez (22) 2020. Ideally? Keep Davis in left, Healy at DH, Nunez and Olson backing up the corners, in that order, due to Nunez's flexibility. This being the A's, though, it's not hard to see Davis getting traded, which opens up left for, probably, Canha for the rest of this season and Olson for 2018. I don't see Canha sticking with the club. I should add that Beane seems to become more inscrutable every season, so I'll probably be wrong about everything. (Rob Mains)
2017-02-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why does Pecota hate Ryon Healy? He was great at all levels last year, and it seems he took a step forward. What am I missing?
(Stephen from Detroit)
This is a fun one. PECOTA is extremely skeptical when a hitter displays a skill that they had not previously in their career. Healy hit for more power at the major-league level than he had ever done before at any level. So, that probably has something to do with PECOTA being somewhat pessimistic from a power standpoint. As a fantasy analyst, I agree with that approach to Healy in 2017. He's one player that I'm consistently lower on than others within the industry. (George Bissell)
2016-12-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)How excited should I be about Ryon Healy?
(Andy from San Jose)
Curb your enthusiasm here, but I'm a fan. He could be a regular guy. (Kenny Ducey)
2016-09-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of hitter do you think Ryon Healy will realistically develop into? He's been a pleasant surprise this year for the A's.
(John from San Francisco)
He is surprising! I remember that CespedesBBQ tweeted something a few weeks ago about players they had no idea were having such good seasons, and Healy is definitely mine. For whatever reason, he's just completely missed my eye and looking at the numbers of late, that's really kind of galling, haha.

In any case, my fantasy waiver wire disappointments notwithstanding, I think Healy could become a pretty solid hitter, say a Todd Frazier type with less power but also less of a propensity to strikeout. I don't think his BABIP and HR/FB will hang the way they are now, but he's had decent contact and okay patience in the minors, and clearly has some pop. I think he's a top 10 3B really soon, maybe next year, as opposed to a Middlebrooks-style mirage. (Trevor Strunk)
2016-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Ryon Healy, Matt Olson, and Matt Chapman? Do you see them developing into legitimate starters at the major league level?
(John from San Francisco)
I think there's going to be a regular from that group, if not more than one. Oakland seems to really find ways to best utilize these types of players. I don't have tons of track record with Healy--he went to Oregon, and I don't see a lot of the west coast prospects much anyway. Olson I think might be one of these guys that only hits for productive game power with the A's because of how platoon-flexible their roster is intended to be...meaning they play a style that will afford a guy like Olson to be put in the right situations for his large raw power to play out.

Chapman I think fits the most traditional mold of a regular all things considered. I really like Oakland's system, I've really liked their drafts the last two years as well. It's a sneaky good system that doesn't get enough attention, and I think will probably start getting attention in that 'why didn't we all see this sooner?' sort of way that Cleveland's depth has been appreciated by evaluators in 2016. (Adam McInturff)
2016-07-13 15:00:00 (link to chat)What can you tell me about these 3B prospects: McMahon, Ryon Healy, Dozier.
(Spencer from Texas)
Dozier's a little rough at third but he has big pop, and can drive the ball out the other way; jury is still out on Healy I'm bummed Nasheville doesn't head up to Tacoma this season but I was encouraged to see him turn on a couple of really good fastballs in the futures game. Don't think he's an impact guy, but he can hit a little and that always gives you a chance. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2016-06-16 21:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see Ryon Healy being the future As 3B or will 1B be permanent?
(Mike from ATL)
He's going to have a tough time sticking at third, but if he keeps hitting, he'll get the opportunity to try. (Bret Sayre)
