BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2019-03-08 16:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you think is the breakout closer this year. Looking for someone who isn't currently in the role but could take over and thrive.
(Paula from Colorado)
There are a ton of potential split closers this season as teams become more comfortable with a flexible approach. I like Jace Fry long term, but he's behind Colome and Herrera, presumably. Being behind two veterans makes his chance a long shot in 2019. If you like veteran throwbacks, Melancon could take over for Will Smith if there's an injury. And Ottavino would be the logical choice behind Aroldis given the Yanks skipped over Betances last time they had the chance. Keone Kela could get a shot if Pittsburgh trades away their closer like always every few years. But my top choice right now is Joe Jimenez. Shane Greene is not a secure option in Detroit, so nab Jimenez while you still can. (Kevin Jebens)
2019-02-25 16:00:00 (link to chat)Who is currently not a closer that you predict will be the closer mid season. Specifically, I am looking for the next Edwin Diaz.
(BK from Toronto)
Well, the next Edwin Diaz will probably be someone who is in the role already but has a breakout and/or visit from the luck elves. Look at Jose Alvarado in Tampa Bay: the Rays are always near the top of the leaderboard for saves chances and while they may do a modified committee, Alvarado could run away with the job early. For committee situations where a closer hasn't been named, I like Trevor May in Minnesota a lot. Sleepers that could get into save roles: Joe Jimenez in DET, Trevor Rosenthal in WAS (an inevitable Doolittle injury away), Diego Castillo in TB, Reyes Moronta in SF. (Jon Hegglund)
2016-06-20 16:00:00 (link to chat)I know he's not in the Florida State League anymore, but I'm curious about Joe Jimenez. He's dominated everywhere, and with the Tigers needs for a strong bullpen arm, can you see him coming up soon? I honestly know very little about him, and am hoping you've seen him and can let us know what you see. Thanks for the chat!
(Scott from CT)
I have seen him! You can check out my eyewitness report on Joe Jimenez right now!

Long story short the stuff is LOUD. Potential 80 Fastball, 65/70 Slider at times, 55 control.

He could be in the major league bullpen if necessary. If they are competing for a playoff spot and he keeps pitching well in AA, then I imagine he will be in the majors soon. (Steve Givarz)
2016-06-13 23:00:00 (link to chat)When does Joe Jimenez come up; do you foresee him having the stuff to continue to be productive?
(Gary from Indiana)
Could easily be a stretch run guy, what he's done this year is supported by steady stuff in line with his pre-season grades (80 FB/60 SL). (Wilson Karaman)
2016-06-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)How much longer does Joe Jimenez have to go before people start talking about the fact that he still hasn't given up a run in 2016?
(Ryan from Abingdon, MD)
If it's still that way in July, it should be a big story, even as a reliever. He's a lot of fun. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-06-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can Joe Jimenez be the Tigers closer next year ? He's been amazing this year.
(Ting from Detroit)
Maybe not the traditional closer, but a high-leverage reliever, for sure. (Christopher Crawford)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Mark, Give me one name in the Tigers organization who will be in A ball or lower next year that's a sleeper, and why. Thanks.
(Marlin Scurti from Clinton Township, MI)
Ben Verlander will get talked about because of his name and bloodlines, but he should be talked about because of his skills. He has a chance to bust out a bit if he can take to playing everyday.

A couple of other names worth nothing include Harold Castro, Javier Betancourt, Steven Fuentes and a big one is Joe Jimenez. (Mark Anderson)
