|2018-07-30 23:00:00 (link to chat)||Who are your favorite CA league prospects who are overlooked by the box score scouts?|
(Chansen8895 from San Jose )
|He's had an underwhelming year statistically, but I still think Jahmai Jones has the chance to be a really solid player. Connor Wong has gone thru some stretches of looking lost at the dish this year, but I like his physicality and there's some raw material there in the bat. Olivares who I mentioned earlier is one of my requisite "fun tools! maybe it'll work some day!" guys this year. Reggie Lawson's numbers don't jump off the page and he kind of gets lost in the shuffle of that insane Padre system, but he's had a really solid year of growth and development. Fastball's ticked up with better strength and conditioning, curveball's got some yak to it. Can make a run at the rotation or be a potentially lights-out relief arm down the line. And Justin Lawrence in the Colorado system has to be just gross to step in against. Command's gonna be hard for him to master, but boy is his stuff gnarly: https://twitter.com/vocaljavelins/status/1018681746999525376 (Wilson Karaman)|
|2018-07-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Do you think Jahmai Jones' offensive development has stagnated this year due to his positional switch?|
(Zack from NY)
|I think it is certainly more difficult to transition from the OF to the INF than it is to go the other way. It makes sense that could account for at least some of Jones' downturn this season. It might be best to focus on the positives in that he has improved his walk rate a good bit. A more selective Jones may be an even better offensive player once he is completely comfortable at 2B.

|2018-06-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)||What is Jahmai Jones? Is he going to be a star at the next level?|
(Josh from Conway)
|I've liked Jones since he was an amateur, but it's more polish over big tools and I think he's more a good regular than a star (Jeffrey Paternostro)|
|2017-03-23 20:00:00 (link to chat)||Who are some lower end top 100 prospects that could really shoot towards the top of the 2018 top 100?|
(Cubs Fan 69 from Illinois)
|Kevin Maitan feels like an obvious answer. I could see Walker Buehler, Jahmai Jones, and Delvin Perez making some big leaps as well. (Mark Barry)|
|2017-02-14 12:00:00 (link to chat)||Did Desmond Lindsay get any consideration for the list? How heavily impacted is his stock by injury risk?|
(Hank from Durham)
|Smith, Lindsay, and Dunn all would have made a top 150, maybe even a top 125. If this was my personal pref list, I could have found a way to get Lindsay on the 101, I don't know he is that far off Jahmai Jones and Anthony Alford as a prospect, but the risk profile here is so extreme. He was a corner infielder in high school, moving to center on the fly, and he's lost a ton of development time already to hamstring issues. And he still only has a short-season resume. A healthy 2017 in Columbia could really jump him into and up next year's 101 though, because while this isn't a personal pref list, I'm not afraid to blow up a guy I really like.
Either way I don't think he is the 137th best prospect next year or whatever. (The Top 101 Prospect Chat with Jeffrey Paternostro)
|2017-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)||How many prospects in the Braves system would be the top prospect in the Angels system?|
(Greg from ATL)
|Not as many as you think, we like Jahmai Jones a lot. Diamondbacks and Royals are better systems for this exercise. (Jeffrey Paternostro)|
|2017-01-18 20:00:00 (link to chat)||Hey Bret, I could use some help on deep dynasty assets for a prospect draft. 20 team dynasty league, 150+ prospects owned. I have two upcoming picks and I've put together a list of 10 guys that I'm having a terrible time differentiating.
My list is:
Jake Bauers, Jahmai Jones, Lucas Erceg, Christin Stewart, Taylor Trammell, Alec Hansen, Walker Buehler, Sixto Sanchez, Justin Dunn, Sandy Alcantara
I was thinking about one hitter and one pitcher but really I just want the two best values from that list. How would you rank the top 3-5 in case a few get taken between my picks? Obviously some of them are closer to the majors and some are much farther away which is why I'm struggling. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
(treynay3 from Grand Rapids)
|I'd go Jones, Alcantara, Erceg, Dunn. (Bret Sayre)|
|2016-12-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)||If you had to turn the Angels into a contender in this offseason, how would you do it? No care in the world about future prospects but realistic spending limits. As long as you can win in 2017, that's all that matters.|
(JustinPerline from NY)
|Hey Justin. They're actually not as far away as one might imagine. Part One: DON'T TRADE TROUT. Part Two: Sign Tyson Ross, because your entire rotation is about crossing your fingers anyway. Then I sign Chase Utley for the infield. Deal Jahmai Jones and Taylor Ward for a starting pitcher. Maybe I trade Cam Bedrosian to a team that wants a cheap closer ... for another starting pitcher and worry about the bullpen in July.
(The answer is more/better starting pitching.) (Bryan Grosnick)
|2016-11-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)||Jahmai Jones - what type of offensive ceiling does he have in a weak Angel system? .300/10-15 HR/30+ SB?|
(Paul from Minnesota)
|That's *really* aggressive for a guy that has like three weeks in full-season ball. But yeah, good reports on him, and I mean, the rest of that system might actually be worse than the Miami catastrophe. (Jarrett Seidler)|
|2016-11-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Who are some of the short-season prospects you are most excited about? Any under-the-radar, deep sleepers worth mentioning? Thanks.|
(Ryne from Waco, TX)
|Avoiding some of the more obvious ones already discussed: Anderson Tejeda,, Christin Pache, Miguelangel Sierra, Jahmai Jones, (Jeffrey Paternostro)|
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
