DateQuestionAnswer
2018-12-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)So, Tyler Jay? What happened to that guy? Will he be picked in the Rule V draft? Oviously, it would be pretty much just based on his draft position.
(Scotty Michael from Dunderton)
Tyler Jay might get picked in the Rule 5 draft later this week, but I don't think the Twins would be particularly upset to lose him. The previous front office regime picked him no. 6 overall, which was heavily criticized at the time, and it looks even worse now. He was a stud college reliever who was supposed to move quickly, but instead the Twins tried him as a starter, he got hurt, and even after shifting back to the bullpen he never rediscovered the old magic. I wouldn't be surprised if Jay carved out a big-league career as a useful reliever, but he's mostly only talked about because of his pedigree at this point. (Aaron Gleeman)
2017-04-28 13:30:00 (link to chat)Craig, What do you know about the health statuses of Dillon Tate, Thomas Szapucki and Tyler Jay? Thanks
(RAWagman from CST)
I don't have anything on Tate. Szapucki had a shoulder impingement and was supposedly throwing at the end of camp. Jay has a shoulder issue (along with Gonsalves). Not sure on when they'll throw again. (Craig Goldstein)
2017-03-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)With Tyler Jay moved to the pen, does this put him on the fast track to Minny ala Edwin Diaz last yr for Seattle?
(Rick from NY)
It puts him on a much faster track, but Jay still needs to show that the velocity and raw stuff he had in college remains. He's had durability and injury issues already. Moving to the bullpen is a way to potentially address that, but he also needs the velocity to return. I think Edwin Diaz is a truly special talent, so Jay isn't in that realm, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him in Minnesota within a few months. (Aaron Gleeman)
2017-03-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you expect from Fernando Romero this year ? Thanks
(Bennie from Ohio)
Biggest key for Romero in 2017 is staying healthy. His role and workload are to be determined, but the raw stuff will play somewhere as long as his arm holds up. Given their lack of high-upside starter prospects, especially after moving Tyler Jay to the bullpen, the Twins will probably give Romero plenty of time to work toward being a starter. (Aaron Gleeman)
2016-04-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)Name 3 prospect hitters that you believe will break out and 3 prospect pitchers that you believe will break out. Both cannot be on BP's top 101 list.
(Bill Clinton from Las Vegas)
Hitters: Cornelius Randolph (I own him in my NL-only league), Bobby Bradley, Christian Arroyo (honorable mention to Dan Vogelbach)

Pitchers: Carson Fulmer, Tyler Jay, Frankie Montas (honorable mention to Franklyn Kilome) (Scooter Hotz)
2016-03-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you have an outside the top 100 prospect that you'll be rooting for this year to make big progress?
(Bradley from MD)
I can't believe Tyler Jay didn't make the top 100 this year. I think a lefty with his velocity, command and multi-pitch mix, who was just drafted in the top 10, is an automatic top-100 guy if not for two things beyond his control: 1) His height and 2) the fact that he was in the bullpen last year, and his athleticism will allow him to overcome both of those things. (Michael Baumann)
2016-03-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)Which group sucks less? Anthony Alford, Rusney Castillo, Manuel Margot, Brett Phillips, Nick Williams,Spencer Adams, Mark Appel, Dylan Cease, Josh Hader, James Kapeielian, Triston McKenzie,Vince Velasquez or Blake Swihart, Jon Singleton, Dansby Swanson, Alex Jackson, Clayton Blackburn,Tyrell Jenkins, Rob Kaminsky, Zach Lee, Keuy Mella, Justin Nicolino, Aaron Nola, Tyler Jay. God these teams are awful.
(Clark from The 19th Hole)
The first group, but you're right, but they're both bad. (Mike Gianella)
2016-01-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Taylor Jay seems like a great pick by the Twins.... alot of guys taken after him making the list... Was Jay at least close?
(Brob from Broville)
Tyler Jay wasn't ever really in discussion for the list. He's certainly an intriguing prospect, but there's a significant chance that he's a reliever, and if he _does_ start, it's more of a mid-rotation than impact profile. Let's see what he does in a full season of starts first. (Top 101 Chat with Craig Goldstein)
