DateQuestionAnswer
2014-12-11 18:00:00 (link to chat)I am a fan of SS Sergio Alcantara but what is his likely ceiling with the bat?
(Rem from Rembuild 2015)
I think the bat is going to come up a little short in the end. He's going to make contact and there's a chance for some batting average here, but the bat speed doesn't overwhelm and I think MLB pitchers are ultimately going to work him over pretty good and turn him into more of a second division SS or utility player, unless a team wants to hang with a plus glove, minimal bat shortstop. (Mark Anderson)
2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)Which Diamondbacks SS would you rather have: Sergio Alcantara or Andrew Velazquez? I'm guessing Alcantara, but Velazquez did just tie Betts' on-base streak.
(Steve from Arizona)
Alcantara. (Jason Parks on the Top 50)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)Ceiling on Sergio Alcantara?
(Steve from Arizona )
I really need to see him before I say with certainty but the tools are there for him to be a first division starter. (Mauricio Rubio)
