DateQuestionAnswer
2015-11-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Trying to evaluate the upside of a few low minors arms - any of these guys have top of the rotation potential: Franklyn Kilome, Dylan Cease, Oscar De La Cruz, Francis Martes, or Devin Williams?
(Jose from CA)
I think you could maybe argue Kilkome but even that seems like a reach. I'd say none of those guys pitches at the top of a big league rotation. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-01-20 19:30:00 (link to chat)Is Devin Williams the most underrated prospect in the NL Central?
(Grizzly from Chicago)
/consults Bret's Top 500 underrated NL Central prospects list

He's a nice arm but I don't think he's terribly underrated at this point. (Ben Carsley)
2015-02-09 20:00:00 (link to chat)Did Devin Williams receive any top 101 consideration or will he need more looks in full season ball first?
(Grizzly from Chicago)
No, he is still a ways off. Some positive strides this year but I'd like to see him in full season ball before pushing the profile into potential 101 territory. (Top 101 Chat)
2014-11-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)How many of your NL Central Top 25 do you expect to make it on the top 100 list when BP publishes it? Average would be around 16 or 17 assuming talent is evenly distributed, right?
(Mike from Texas)
I did say I'd throw a top 25 NL Central Prospects list out there during this chat. With the understanding this is a work in progress (Mellen and I are starting to dig in on the framework for the Top 101), this is my own personal ranking of the prospects covered in our NL Central rankings:

1. SS Addison Russell
2. 3B Kris Bryant
3. RHP Robert Stephenson
4. OF Jorge Soler
5. OF Albert Almora
6. OF Stephen Piscotty
7. LHP Marco Gonzales
8. RHP Tyler Glasnow
9. RHP Jameson Taillon
10. OF Jesse Winker
11. OF/1B Josh Bell
12. RHP Alex Reyes
13. C Kyle Schwarber
14. RHP Michael Lorenzen
15. SS Orlando Arcia
16. OF Tyrone Taylor
17. OF Billy McKinney
18. RHP Pierce Johnson
19. SS Gleyber Torres
20. RHP Jack Flaherty
21. OF Yorman Rodriguez
22. C Reese McGuire
23. RHP Nick Howard
24. RHP Devin Williams
25. LHP Rob Kaminsky

I think all of those guys will be in the discussion for the 101, and expect there to be some shuffling in order of course. Definitely more than the average of 16 or 17. (NL Central Top 10s With Nick Faleris)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who is the top pitching Prospect behind Jimmy Nelson and the top Hitting prospect
(Brewmann04 from new york)
I'm assuming this references the Brewers' minor-league system. The Brewers' top pitching prospect behind Nelson is Devin Williams, who could legitimately flirt with the Top 101 Prospects next winter. As far as position prospects are concerned, it's perhaps more difficult to pin that down. Tyrone Taylor and Orlando Arcia are guys who could be starters at the major-league level if the bats progress enough, but Monte Harrison might have something to say about that before the year is done. It's also been nice to see Clint Coulter rebound a bit. (J.P. Breen)
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Have you seen Alex Reyez yet? if so, what are your initial impressions. Also, all these guys are far away but what do you know about Lewis Thorpe and Devin Williams?
(Brian from Mass)
Haven't seen Reyes yet, though everything I keep hearing from scouts is extremely impressive. Touched on Thorpe in a prior answer, and let's just say I really like him. Williams is probably the most raw of the trio, but he has the physical characteristics I like and there's plenty to like if he can add strength and begin to gain some feel. (Mark Anderson)
2014-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will the Brewers be close to having a top 50 prospect in the next year? Two years? Three? Ever? What do you see them looking for in the draft this year? Thanks.
(JusFatDogginIt from Arkansas)
Unless Tyrone Taylor or Devin Williams go nuts in 2014/2015, its hard to see a Brewers prospect with that level of helium. (Jason Parks on the Completed Prospect Rankings)
2014-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)What would you consider a "good" season for Devin Williams?
(Joe from MKE)
Staying healthy, building innings and refining his fastball command while showing some feel for secondary execution. (Jason Parks on the Completed Prospect Rankings)
2013-11-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you make of Devin Williams? I know Jason Cole loves his projectability and the recent refinements he has made. Realistic shot at topping the Brewers prospect list in a year or two?
(Dougie Fresh from Steamboat)
I might be able to top the Brewers prospect list in a year or two. But in all seriousness, the reports have been good. Long way to go, both in terms of command and secondary stuff, but he's a good prospect in a bad system. (Jason Parks)
2013-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Outside the top 10 draftees, has anyone other than JPCrawford improved his stock by a large margin?
(tr from Here )
Since the draft? Absolutely. Hunter Harvey, Bobby Wahl and Devin Williams are a few guys whose prospect stock look significantly better than their draft slot. (Bret Sayre)
2013-11-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you make of the ceilings and likelihood of getting there on Devin Williams and Sean Manaea?
(Ziggy from Top)
I like Devin Williams (potential #2) over Manaea (potential #3 or late-inning reliever), but Manaea is the safer bet. Williams is a solid athlete that will should be sitting mid-90s when all is said and done. He turns over an impressive change up and will flash a solid low-80s slider. Manaea has arm strength, but really only showed above-average secondaries during his stint on the Cape. (Nick J. Faleris)
