DateQuestionAnswer
2019-09-06 12:00:00 (link to chat)I resisted taking Gavin Lux with my last pick in . a 4 yr keeper this year. Do you think in 2020, he can immediately become a top 100 player?
(Vic from Baltimore)
So some names between 90-100 on our position player WARP leaderboard include Scott Kingery, Jean Segura, and David Fletcher. I know this is a fantasy question, but that seems doable for Lux, broadly speaking (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-06-05 21:00:00 (link to chat)Any fringe prospects or young MLB guys you’d recommend chasing in dynasty if I’m rebuilding? I’ve started to target high risk/reward guys in the hopes that I can hit on a few of them.
(Phin from WI)
Chasing any players in particular isn't generally a great idea, but I like what Scott Kingery has been doing this year and I don't think his value has caught up with his performance because some of it is unsustainable. I like the idea of buying pitchers who have currently muddled roles like Alex Reyes or Josh James. Buying into the down cycle is often the best way to spur a rebuild, especially when you're looking at players with service time or current MLB roles. (Mr. President Bret Sayre)
2018-06-20 19:00:00 (link to chat)Can you name some guys you think are good buy low candidates in dynasty. Hoskins, Conforto, L Castillo, etc?
(Hobbs from NY Knights)
Manuel Margot, Jon Gray, Scott Kingery. (Mike Gianella)
2018-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Scott Kingery has sure cooled off. Is he heading to the minors, or are they going to stick with him?
(Buddy from Peoria, IL)
They've got so many options in the bigs that it may just be the best idea to send him down. He clearly needs consistent ABs. (Anthony Rescan)
2018-04-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Assuming health of course, what do you expect from Scott Kingery over a full season?
(Buddy from Peoria, IL)
For this year, Kingery's best tool is his speed, where he may reach 20 SB if lucky. He's not going to help you in average, but he shouldn't hurt -- something near .250-.260 is reasonable. Power is still developing, but 10-12 HR seems right. I wouldn't project him for 15+ HR, but then, no one pegged Lindor for 30 HR, so what do we know? In redraft leagues, I didn't pay for Kingery's hype. In keeper leagues, of course he's a great investment. (Kevin Jebens)
2018-02-28 20:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Scott Kingery? Can he sustain his power production from last year?
(Cheryl from Rubbing on Clint)
I think he does keep some of it, but not as much as his biggest optimists might hope. Notice that it dropped after he left the launch pad that is Reading (though to be fair he hit them on the road and not just at home while at Double-A). (Eddy Almaguer)
2017-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)My farm consists of Gleyber Torres, Vlad Guerrero Jr, Franklin Barreto, Austin Meadows, Scott Kingery, Mickey Moniak, Blake Rutherford, Michael Kopech, Mitch Keller and Tyler Mahle. Plus recently graduated Amed Rosario, Bradley Zimmer and Clint Frazier. Is there any positions or areas I should focus on as I work to be competitive in 2019?
(Trip from SC)
Trip. Dude. You're kidding me, right? That is a ridiculous farm system, and seems pretty well-timed for your 2019 target date. I mean, really.

Just to be sure, I checked with Scooter Hotz of our prospects team. His take: "I agree with your assessment. I would also add that with prospects, dont worry about positional need. Focus on getting the best prospects regardless of position. If you end up with a surplus of players at a position in the majors, use the trade market to re-organize your roster positionally. That will give you more value than prioritizing positional need over getting the best player available."

(I will note that Scooter and I are in a fantasy league together. I've spent the entire year with a surplus of OFs and a lack of RPs, and he had a surplus of RPs and a lack of OFs, and we never got it together to make a trade. So do as we say, not as we do) (Rob Mains)
2017-07-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Views on Scott Kingery?
(Bill from Idaho)
Not sure I have too much to add above and beyond what our prospect team had on him in the recent midseason 50 where he weighed in at 50: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=32224

Second basemen can sometimes get overlooked, but if he keeps doing what he's doing--as indicated in that blurb--maybe he's underrated. (Nick Schaefer)
2017-06-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)Scott Kingery or JP Crawford in dynasty league? Do you still have any hope JP Crawford can be better once he reaches majors (like Lindor)? Does he have a Lindor like ceiling still?
(Charley from SC)
I'd take Crawford, so yes, I still have hope. But Lindor? Man, Lindor barely had a Lindor-like ceiling, MLB Lindor is a very very very high percentile outcome for Prospect Lindor. (Jarrett Seidler)
2017-06-13 12:00:00 (link to chat)Please rank the following based on fantasy profile long-term: Jake Bauers, Nick Williams, Scott Kingery, Shed Long, Austin Hays, Ryan Mountcastle. Thanks!
(Fred from Scottsdale)
Williams, Mountcastle, Kingery, Hays, Long, Bauers.

It's tough because you've got some speed-only types in there and at that point it really just depends what you're looking for on your team. I have never been on Bauers, so there might be some bias there. (Craig Goldstein)
2017-05-22 23:00:00 (link to chat)Scott Kingery - kind of exciting, feels like more than Reading inflation.
(kc from va)
I know he added a bunch of good weight in the off-season, and he hit 36 doubles last year, so it's not *totally* out of the blue that he's hitting more dingers in one of the best parks to do so. I think he's a solid player, may push 50 game power at maturity. (Wilson Karaman)
2017-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)will Scott Kingery develop enough to become an everday player? Good numbers, speed, defense for level so far... but Philly could spend it's cash for expensive options. Not to mention Galvis could bump there when Crawford established.
(Roger from Roger)
Jesus, am I about to type "I don't know if Scott Kingery is an upgrade over Freddy Galvis?" Yeah, he might not be. Kingery seems like one of those dudes that is nice to have, but one you generally don't want to have as a starter. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-07-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)How would you project Cristin Stewart's and Scott Kingery's hit/power in the show?
(Thomas from TX)
Stewart projects to have more power in the majors. Kingery's expected to take over for Chase Utley, but he likely doesn't have the power Utley has. The Phillies are advancing him through the ranks pretty quickly, with his Double-A promotion, so we might learn the answer to at least Kingery's power-potential pretty soon. (Jessica Quiroli)
