DateQuestionAnswer
2018-05-25 12:15:00 (link to chat)What do you see the long term roles for Erik Swanson and Ryan Helsley who are impressing in AAA?
(Peter from Denver)
Relief for both. Not to say they can't be more (I'd bank on Helsley maintaining a SP role before Swanson, but neither is impossible) but the likelihood is relief for both, for me. (Craig Goldstein)
2016-07-05 19:00:00 (link to chat)Your favorite sleeper prospect in the Rangers' system?
(Niel from Dallas)
Erik Swanson's apparently found some velo, reportedly as high as 98, and has some nice looking numbers. He is 22 in low-A, but he missed a lot of time in 2015, so he could jump through the level if the results are real. (Kate Morrison)
