|2017-09-29 12:00:00 (link to chat)||What grade does Luis Guillorme's defense at second base get? Shortstop?
If he's 'gold glove quality' at either, how high of an OBP would he need to stick as a starter? (Assuming he doesn't change his slap-heavy approach drastically)|

|He might legit be an 8 2B. Takes some pressure off his arm, and he's very very good around the bag generally. The problem is the comp for this profile is all like 1970s players. He's out of a different era. I tried to shoehorn a Luis Castillo comp on the pod, but he isn't going to beat out the extra 20 bunts and infield hits a year. He's have to be like .270/.340/.320. That with +10 glove at 2B is a starter, if one you are always trying to upgrade. (Jeffrey Paternostro)|

(David from Atlantis)
|I used to like fringy grinders and polished arms with advanced change-ups (Milone, Ynoa), but nowadays I am more inclined to take dudes on a case-by-case basis. For example, I was really impressed with Raimel Tapia this week, and that would never be a profile I would have fallen for in the past. I guess young middle infielders with some polish (Wade, Luis Guillorme, Carpio) would be the closest I have to a type right now. (Jeffrey Paternostro)|

(someguynamedkenn from New Jersey)
|I don't know how new this is, but I love telling Luis Guillorme stories, so I'll wrap up with this. I may or may not have been watching a World Baseball Classic qualifier at work. Guillorme was playing shortstop for Spain. They were playing on a field in Panama which perhaps didn't have the greatest groundskeeping in the world. He gets a little chopper over the mound and instead of charging on it, backs up to the outfield grass for an in-between hop. He gets a weird one, snags it hip high, and a split second later the ball is in the second baseman's glove and gets the force by a hair. It doesn't seem like much, but he did everything you wouldn't teach, and it didn't matter. He's never flashy, but you never see the strings when he plays. (Jeffrey Paternostro)|
|2014-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Jeff - have you had a chance to see any backfield action from the Blue Jays system? If so, anything catch your eye?
Also, a more generic question. How many views do you want of a guy before you are comfortable making a scouting judgment? Thank you|

|Haven't gotten up to Dunedin just yet. Still working full-time until around April in addition to my BPro commitments so I only get to fields a few days a week until the busy season ends down here.
As for your second question, it's a good one. There are certain things you can tell right away. I saw Mets SS prospect Luis Guillorme take two ground balls and knew he was a plus fielder. One round of BP can tell me a lot about a hitter's swing. In-game at-bats, however, are another entity altogether. I need to see 5-10 at-bats before I can really get a feel for what a hitter can do, and preferably against different types of pitchers. If they're all against the same thing (all against FB/CH righties, for example), it may take more. (Jeff Moore)
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
