DateQuestionAnswer
2016-09-12 23:00:00 (link to chat)Greg Allen, Franchy Cordero and Ramon Laureano all carried over their production after reaching AA this season. LaMonte Wade, Magneuris Sierra and Cedric Mullins hope to do the same in 2017. Rank these by likelihood of becoming an above-average everyday player, and by which will have the most exciting peak season (wearing rose-colored glasses).
(Oliver from Boston)
I was really impressed with Allen in a couple looks this year. I don't think he's an impact fantasy player or anything, but he has great feel to use his speed on the bases and his approach is excellent, to where he should be able to get on base, steals some bags, and score some runs. Franchy...I'm really surprised at his outburst at AA, frankly. He's got a ton of athleticism and quick-twitch to him, but both the swing and approach were real suspect in High-A. Never bet against athletes, but I put a 30 on his hit tool for a reason. And Laureano's a solid player who improved legitimately during his stint at Lancaster, which is not always easy to do. He's not as elite a speedster (or power guy) as the numbers this year would suggest, but there's a second-division profile there. I'd go Allen, Laureano, Cordero out of those guys. (Wilson Karaman)
2015-06-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Having seen your share of Palm Beach early on, what's your read on Magneuris Sierra? Was he just overmatched for the time being or was last year in short-season ball an anomaly?
(Steve from STL)
He's actually in Peroia, but I saw him a bunch last year in the GCL. I liked him a lot last year, but I think he's a case of everyone getting over-excited because he put up a gaudy number like a .386 batting average. He's got some strong tools and some quick-twitch athleticism that I like a lot, but assuming he was just going to slide right into full-season ball and hit was unrealistic. Still, a sub-.200 batting average is surprising. He's better than that. (Jeff Moore)
2015-04-06 20:15:00 (link to chat)Hey Craig, who do you have as some of your favorite Low Minor, high ceiling prospects to keep an eye on for 2015, and are looking to acquire before their stock gains recognition this season, ex. Tapia last pre-season or Devers by its conclusion?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
Devers was less one of my low minors favorites than Bret or Ben. Yeyson Yrizarri fits the bill for me, less so for fantasy than real life, though. Some fantasy name to watch would be Wilmer Difo, Rob Kaminsky, Jorge Mateo, Chance Sisco and Magneuris Sierra. (Craig Goldstein)
2015-04-06 20:15:00 (link to chat)End of my minor league draft, I took Monte Harrison instead of Magneuris Sierra... mistake? Lottery tickets either way?
(Nick from Los Angeles)
Moreso lottery tickets either way. Just depends where you like you "security." Speed (Harrison) or hit tool (Sierra). I'd probably take Harrison. (Craig Goldstein)
2015-03-25 19:00:00 (link to chat)Of course I don't expect you to offer thoughts on all of these guys, but since I don't know who you got a look at, I hope you'll excuse me listing several you might have info on: Greg Bird, Michael Gettys, Magneuris Sierra, Gilbert Lara. Thanks!
(Andrew from St. Louis)
Bird- keeps hitting, but I'm still not sold. Passive approach, no real defensive value, swing can get long
Gettys- phew, tools, man. Guy has a legit 8 arm, 7 speed, plus raw pop. But, I'm not sold he can hit with that swing. His bat is not in the zone for very long.
Lara- kind of a weird, choppy swing. First movement is down toward his back hip, but he makes it work. Unbelievably strong, but he won't be able to hit anything above the belt, so the plate disc will have to be an asset.

I haven't seen Sierra yet, but should get plenty of looks at him in the MWL this year. (Jordan Gorosh)
2015-03-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Will Magneuris Sierra separate himself and skyrocket up prospect lists this year? ( or at least get on it since he's so young)
(Victor from Maryland)
Now THERE'S a sleeper prospect. In fact, I had never heard of Sierra until Keith brought him to my attention last fall. Plus speed, lus hit tool and as he gets stronger I think he'll turn some of those doubles into triples. Long way to go, but talent is immense. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-01-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Jeff, curious for your thoughts on Magneuris Sierra?
(matt from texas)
Very talented, very athletic. Still a lot to prove. Was too good for GCL competition, which tells us something about him but also leaves us with a lot of skewed information. Definitely a guy to watch but also still with a lot to prove before I get too excited. (Jeff Moore)
2014-11-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Magneuris Sierra: really a potential standout? Should I stash him in a very deep dynasty league? thanks
(fabiopao from Italy)
Bret Sayre is the guy to ask about dynasty league baseball questions, as he has a better feel for comparative value of different profiles in that specific context. What I can say is that it's a potential plus hit tool that could move quickly through the system. He's not overly physical, but should be strong enough to have that hit tool play up, and I think he blossoms into a dangerous runner, as well. Probably not a huge power guy, but I assume BA/SB guy that could hit atop a solid run producing lineup is pretty good for your purposes. On an escalated pace he's still three years away, it might end up closer to four or five depending on development and need. (NL Central Top 10s With Nick Faleris)
2014-11-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)I have not heard anything from Team Instructs on various prospect boards... well not like last year when everyone was raving on Raphel Denvers. Any news on a hidden gem from somewhere in Latin America or one of the recent Draftees that could be poised to breakout or shine through to their potential and establish them as a top 50 or 100 prospect next year.
(Len Pearlman from Some place warm)
I have heard good things about CF Magneuris Sierra, which we listed as a OTR candidate for the Cardinals Top 10. Check out his writeup for more info:

http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=25097 (Tucker Blair)
2014-12-11 18:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for chatting, Mark! Friend of mine who lives in Florida and sees loads of GCL & FSL games opined that Albert Almora and Magneuris Sierra were the two best defensive centerfielders he'd seen in several years -- though he also took pains to mention that for whatever reason Juan Lagares was playing primarily LF when he passed through the Sunshine State. Have you heard similar reports on Sierra and Almora?
(Milo Satinsky from Chevy Chase, Md.)
I have heard similar things. Both Almora and Sierra are instinctual defenders that make covering center field look easy. Sierra is a little more explosive as a player, but what Almora lacks in explosiveness he makes up for in polish and all-around ability. Both players have a chance to be exciting Major Leaguers. (Mark Anderson)
2014-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any thoughts on CF Magneuris Sierra, Jeff? Possible 10-12 HR, 30 steal guy who hits .280-.290 someday? Been smokin' the ball lately!
(Joe College from hippo campus)
I refuse to put statistical projections on guys in the GCL. They're just way too far away to determine anything like that. Siera is a very nice prospect, however with a bunch of tools. He's definitely a guy to watch. (Jeff Moore)
