2019-05-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Craig. As an all around great guy, I have to get your opinion on the Royals farm system. It's my opinion that it should be ranked 35th or 40th in baseball, but I wanted to get your esteemed opinion on why Nick Pratto is so horrible and Chase Vallot is being robbed of a promotion in Lexington.
(shauncore from Great Midwest)
I haven't seen Pratto and I've asked the team if we've caught him. It's hard to explain a 450 OPS given his pedigree even if a lot of 20 year olds aren't at High-A. I'll update if anyone has a good look at him. Re: Vallot, I think they want him playing everyday and Melendez is in Wilmington. Not a bad problem to have, unless you're Vallot. (Craig Goldstein)
2018-07-13 15:00:00 (link to chat)How is Chase Vallot not on the top 50? Guy is a monster! Also, Khalil Lee might not even be one of the 50 best prospects in the Royals system. I feel like you guys are trolling me.
(Shauncore from KC)
Man are you gonna feel trolled when the Risers and Fallers list drops next week then. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-08-15 22:00:00 (link to chat)First, thanks for y'all's hard work. Makes the BP subscription an easy renew each year. Thoughts on some Royals guys: Chase Vallot, Hunter Dozier, and Josh Staumont.
(Danny G from Minnesota)
You're welcome! Thanks for reading!

I don't think it's hyperbole to say that Staumont has one of the best pure FB/CB combos in the minor leagues, and he'll flash a CH to go with 'em. But the delivery hasn't gotten much crisper this year and he just hasn't shown signs of developing the kind of baseline command to stick in a rotation. High-leverage potential if he can take even minimal steps forward in simplifying and better repeating.

Dozier doesn't really have much left to show anyone in the minors. The swing looked stiff and powerful in San Diego. There's plus power, but it's more of a strength swing. He moved around the bag pretty good at third, though the reactions and fluidity of a quality asset at the position weren't on display when I saw him.

Vallot seems to have hit a wall offensively in the second half, but he's 19, and these things happen to young catchers. The power and on-base combo was on full display earlier this season though. I don't have anything on his D development, sorry. (Wilson Karaman)
