DateQuestionAnswer
2018-08-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)How excited should I be about Jacob Nix?
(Alejandro from Calcutta)
Not very. Great control, below average strikeouts. Streamer at best in fantasy, serviceable SP5 in real life. (Eddy Almaguer)
2018-06-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Jacob Nix a 3?
(Keith from Everglades)
You'd like to see (A) a full healthy season, and (B) him miss some more bats, in that order of importance. But #3 starter is definitely in play. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-03-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of this Kevin Garnett-esqu trade in a 30 team dynasty league: Andrew Benintendi for German Marquez, Jacob Nix, Brock Stewart, Chance Adams, Taylor Trammell, Luis Urias, TJ Friedl, and Ricardo Cespedes?
(Bob from Georgia)
I have no idea whether this is a good trade or not. It depends too much on too many things I don't know. I don't play dynasty leagues. Best guess: if you're willing to trade present for future, I really like the idea and several of these names. Go for it. (Matthew Trueblood)
2017-02-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Any thoughts on Mason Thompson or Jacob Nix?
(sdsuphilip from San Diego)
Not really, no. (Kate Morrison)
2016-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jake Nix has some of the better stuff of pitchers who spent the entire year in the MWL, but struggled to actually convert that into consistent results. Just a matter of learning sequencing and finding the feel on the slider more consistently, or other, bigger issues to deal with?
(David from San Diego)
First off, I love Jacob Nix. James can attest to this as I eventually bring his name up in any conversation we have about the MWL. There are no big issues with Nix in my opinion. He needs to find more consistency with the breaking ball, and needs to continue to get reps. His fastball has touched 97 in prior viewings, and his change up has flashes of *at least* average when I've seen it. The delivery was quieted down from last year to now, and he still throws with intent, but from last year to now it was a very successful campaign. (Midwest League Wrap Up)
2016-08-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Logan Allen or Jacob Nix? Allen is healthy now
(Philip from San Diego)
Give me Jacob Nix. I have Allen down as a back end reliever just because there is too much going on with his delivery. The caveat here will be health. Nix needs to demonstrate the ability to stay healthy and regain the stuff that got him drafted. Grant Jones has written about Nix and really likes his potential. (James Fisher)
2016-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any favorite pitchers in Low-A?
(Darryl from New York)
Mike Soroka, Mitch Keller, Anderson Espinoza, Jacob Nix, Jon Harris all come to mind, not necessarily in that order. I like Soroka a whole lot though because of his frame/stuff paired with the strikethrowing he's showed throughout this season. (Adam McInturff)
2016-06-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)Are there any prospects you are higher on then your colleagues? Also are there prospects we aren't aware of that you think will be getting buzz by this time next year?
(Bob from Northern Hemisphere)
I think I am higher on Cease than most. I really like his mix, and the Cubs cleaned up his delivery, change sounds like its well on its way. This from seeing one outing last summer, and just a lot of video and talking to people though. I am probably also higher than most on Jacob Nix, of the Padres. He has impressed me in multiple outings with Fort Wayne this year.

its really hard to say there is anyone people aren't aware of. Its been less than a week since the draft, and most every team has a fan blog out there that has broken down every player drafted by their team. The players that we aren't aware of would have to be DSL guys, or players that haven't signed yet. Someone will go from a day one or two watch, to a top five drafted player. (Grant Jones)
2016-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Fort Wayne's trio: Austin Smith, Jacob Nix, and Logan Allen? Who has the highest ceiling?
(padremurph from Los Angeles)
It's a pretty good trio. The highest ceiling to me is Smith, but Nix and Allen aren't far behind. I like Smith a lot, 65 fastball, above-average curveball and flashes of a pretty good change, too. (Christopher Crawford)
