DateQuestionAnswer
2017-11-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Has anyone done anything in the AFL to change their outlook a decent amount? I know many preach that they don't give much weight to AFL performance...and then those same people rank Gleyber Torres #1 after what he did in 2016.
(Marvin from FLA)
I don't really put much stock in Fall Ball past seeing if guys are healthy (Albert Abreu for example). Wide variety of competition level, pitchers are gassed, run environment akin to the surface of the moon. If you need the league to tell you Ronald Acuna, Estevan Florial, and Justus Sheffield are really good prospects, I wonder what you were doing all Summer (and in some cases, in 2016). (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-11-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see any of these pitchers as likely to be a #1: Michael Baez, Mitch Keller, Forrest Whitley, Mackenzie Gore, Michael Fulmer, Justus Sheffield. Which ones? I’ve got them listed in my draft order . What do you think?
(temple from Madison WI)
I'd probably drop Baez behind the first two (and we have people that lurrrrrve Gore internally as well), but I also maybe wouldn't argue he has the best chance to be a #1 there. You could also argue Fulmer is actually the closest to *being* a 1, and you would of course be right, but his elbow situation is worrisome. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-10-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who leads the next wave of Yankee prospects to make it to the big leagues, Gleyber or one of the young pitchers?
(Joao from Baltimore)
I'm assuming this means who gets there first? As of right now I would say that Chance Adams may find himself in New York before Gleyber Torres, but only because they may want to keep Gleyber down for Super Two purposes. The Yankees may be losing both CC Sabathia and Masahiro Tanaka this winter (although I wouldn't be shocked if they both come back). They may go out and get someone like Alex Cobb, but Adams will have a role to play. You'll also see Justus Sheffield at some point, but he's a little bit further off. Adams could probably break camp with the big team and be okay, but I doubt that happens. (Nicolas Stellini)
2017-07-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)AL East, what minor league pitchers will get the call in the second half? Chance Adams, Brent Honeywell? How do you think they do?
(Stan from Baltimore)
Those are good bets, I'd think we'd see Adams sooner rather than later, although I'm not sure if they have him on an innings limit. I think he will hold his own. Honeywell is super fun and his K:BB is great, but he's still getting hit around a bit in AAA. I'd guess he appears as a reliever in September and excels in that role and auditions for a rotation spot next spring.

Limiting it to the AL East...Justus Sheffield could also survive at the back of the rotation maybe? (Nick Schaefer)
2017-03-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Jarrett. Which prospects are you higher on than your colleagues & why? Vice versa which ones are you lower on & why?
(David from Atlantis)
I'm probably the internal high guy on Justus Sheffield, really because I saw him later in the season than everyone else. Either he was emptying the tank with the end near or he'd progressed a fair amount, or both.

I suspect I'm the low guy on Brad Zimmer. I just don't know if there's an adjustment to MLB-quality pitching coming, and he's running out of time. (Jarrett Seidler)
2017-03-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)In the upcoming season for you when you are going to games who are you most excited to see in the Eastern & Sally Leagues?
(Leonard from None of Your Business)
Just my *home* teams project to have Gleyber Torres, Justus Sheffield, Mickey Moniak, probably Sixto Sanchez and/or Adonis Medina, maybe Jhailyn Ortiz or Kevin Gowdy, Jorge Mateo and James Kapielian within a month or two, and some other interesting arms. (Jarrett Seidler)
2016-11-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)Beyond your run of the mill elite prospects (e.g. Urias, Giolito, Glasnow) and thoroughly discussed players (e.g. Lugo, Gsellman), which starting pitching prospects are you looking forward to getting a shot this year? Why?
(PunchoutPappy from First in Flight)
I'd like to get more looks at Justus Sheffield, who I saw once and loved and should see a lot more of in Trenton. The aforementioned Michael Kopech, too. (Jarrett Seidler)
2016-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could you rank the following: Chase Adams, Michael Kopech, Justus Sheffield, and Brent Honeywell.
(Bob from Fayetteville)
Not only can I, I will! Honeywell, Kopech, Sheffield, Adams. Another good group. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-08-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)1 spot left in a 40 man dynasty roster. 1 pitcher Ortiz, Toussaint, or Sheffield? Thanks
(DynastyOnly from Pa)
First names, people. I assume Luis Ortiz and Justus Sheffield, in which case, Ortiz. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-06-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)How's this crop relative to other drafts? Is it deep in terms of projectability or more top-heavy?
(Hoof Hearted from Booze Cruise)
I think overall, the 2016 class will have some value throughout--though won't be the most superstar-laden, either.

In terms of how talent is dispersed (top-heavy vs. depth), I think there's 55 or 60-grade depth, depending on how some of the prep arms turn out. When one of the strengths of a draft class is high school pitching--a demographic that usually will fall in the Draft--there's a chance for potentially high-ceiling talent outside of the first 30 picks.

Justus Sheffield, Robert Tyler, Dakota Hudson, and Alec Hansen are college arms who could have big league futures, all drafted outside the top 30 picks.

Joey Wentz, Kevin Gowdy, and Kyle Muller are high-upside prep arms also outside the earliest picks.
-Adam McInturff (Live Draft Chat)
2015-12-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Bradley Zimmer and Justus Sheffield too much or fair in a trade involving Todd Frazier ?? Thanks
(Drew from Cincy)
You're welcome. I'd say that's a little on the high side, as much as I like Frazier. But I've been infatuated with Zimmer for a really long time. Maybe I'm underrating Frazier, though. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-06-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Juan Hillman last to pick 41? Do the Braves concentrate of LH pitchers?
(Tim from AZ)
I think he probably does, just because of the concerns over the upside. He's sort of the "Justus Sheffield" of the draft, and he'd be very nice value. I've heard the Braves more on college pitchers and the Atlanta preps than LHP. (Christopher Crawford)
