2016-08-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Your thoughts on control specialist Thomas Eshelman? He seems to have figured something out after a bad stretch at Reading. Future up-and-down guy or something more?
(Elbo from Altoona)
I think he's better than and up-and-down guy, but I'm not sure how much. He hasn't shown the same control in college, because that wasn't possible, but he throws plenty of strikes with good enough stuff to be a fourth or fifth starter. He was a nice get in the Ken Giles trade, but I don't see a ton of upside here. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)Little bit deeper, but what are you thoughts on Mallex Smith - ATL and Thomas Eshelman - PHI?
(SPG from LA)
Love the speed with Smith. I would be buying in on him now. (George Bissell)
