DateQuestionAnswer
2018-06-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Should we assume Nick Kingham is back up if Chad Kuhl hits the DL? Expectations for him for rest of season if he's able to stick ?
(giventofly1980 from Terre Haute, Indiana)
Yeah, that makes sense. I'd like to see Glasnow in the rotation again, because of the strikeout upside, and at least Glasnow's improving his BB/9 from past years. But Kingham has had a nice handful of starts this season, and his ratios are good. If he sticks, maybe his ERA nudges up to above 4.00, but the SwStr% and first pitch strikes help his chances of keeping his K/9 gains. (Kevin Jebens)
2017-06-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)Tyler Glasnow is not learning anything in Triple A. I think they need to bring him up and let him start and figure it out at the major league level instead of Chad Kuhl.
(Hector from Denver)
I don't mind giving him a few weeks to catch his breath -- he was really getting crushed and looking awful doing it. I might be more inclined to give him a month of middle-leverage relief work and see how that looks than to throw him back in the rotation, but when top prospects go that far south there aren't easy answers. (Jarrett Seidler)
2016-09-08 19:00:00 (link to chat)Tirado, Tuki, and Mitch Keller, who's primed for the bigger step forward and who has the bigger upside?
(Jquinton82 from NY)
Keller for me and it's not that close. He was exceptional (2.35 ERA with 131 strikeouts and just 18 walks in 130 IP) at West Virginia in the South Atlantic League. He's only 20-years-old and I trust the Pirates development system. They've churned out a ton of quality arms recently. Obviously Taillon & Glasnow head that list but Chad Kuhl and others have come through and made an impact as well. (George Bissell)
