2018-05-25 12:15:00 (link to chat)Speaking of Dylan Cease, I traded him before the year for Jose Albertos, who has been a complete trainwreck with 32 walks in 13 innings. Is that a good trade gone wrong or a bad move to begin with?
(Gabe from MO)
Couple questions on Albertos in the queue right now. I think it was probably an even trade at the time in terms of talent and it's gone wrong in both ways for you, sure. That said if it's a mechanical issue or a health issue, Albertos could get right pretty quickly. It's obviously highly abnormal, what's going on, and that's always a concern but I don't have any real insight into the actual issues there. (Craig Goldstein)
2018-02-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)Which player did you fight for but ultimately couldn't get inside the top 101?
(Jeremy from SD)
So the nice thing about taking the lead on this list is I can usually squeeze my guys in (see: Arquimedez Gamboa). Would have liked to find room for Yency Almonte, Jose Albertos, and Jhailyn Ortiz. (Top 101 with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-05-15 17:00:00 (link to chat)Any of the following that you really like for high ceiling? Jose Albertos, Dukota Hudson..thangs again
(Accudart from VT)
Yes, Albertos' ceiling is great. (Mike Gianella)
2017-03-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)In order of ceiling and anyone who is a fav of yours..thanks P Mitchell White P Oscar DeLaCruz P Jose Albertos P Adonis Medina Big time long term Scoresheet rebuild and these guys are still out there and I have patience and picks to spend on them.
(Accudart from VT)
I think in order of ceiling, I'd go De La Cruz, White, Medina, and Albertos. I like all four as Scoresheet guys, inasmuch as you have three in White, De La Cruz, and Albertos who can develop that high K, low BB profile as starters, and one in Medina whose stuff isn't quite playing up to his stats yet, so he can come at a bargain (in the same pre-hype vein as Sixto Sanchez was a few months ago).

That said, I'm always the one lowest on guys like Medina because I stat sheet scout for strikeouts. You miss out on your Kyle Hendrickses that way, but it usually works for the minors. Meanwhile, Albertos has drool-worthy stats but not a ton of proofing time in pro ball to make me confident, and the same goes to a lesser degree with White. De La Cruz seems like the perfect bet overall because of his nice skillset and the relatively robust minor league career (similar in some ways to Medina). (Trevor Strunk)
2017-03-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Matt--I know you write for BP Wrigleyville so i figure you're relatively plugged in on the cubs--what is the word on Jose Albertos?!?! Moreso than any prospect I can think of, he seems to be this mysterious entity that is at the same time oozing potential and a complete and total unknown. He's like the Kaiser Soze of prospects. Whats the deal with that? And whats the deal with him? is there any news? has he thrown again after those 4 mythical innings last June?
(ROOKIE BALL PITCHERS FTW from Risk City)
I think he's back on mounds this spring? But who knows. Not THAT mysterious. Was one of the best amateur talents in Mexico, Cubs needed a way to bid for top talent despite their spending restrictions, Mexico is a kind of loophole for that. The official word is that he was shut down for non-injury reasons last fall. Assuming that's true (not an assumption I'm willing to make yet), he's going to get a lot of helium this summer. (Matthew Trueblood)
2017-02-14 12:00:00 (link to chat)Last year I was excited for Oscar De La Cruz to take the next step. Unfortunately that didn't happen. This year seems it could be Jose Albertos. Should I get my hopes going again or should I remember he is a pitching prospect?
(Ditka from Chicago )
He's also a pitcher.

I think you can still be excited about both, while acknowledging the risk profiles--especially Albertos's--are extreme. Either is a healthy season away from making next year's 101. But that applies to a lot of pitching prospects in that range. (The Top 101 Prospect Chat with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-02-14 12:00:00 (link to chat)anybody who didn't make the 101 or "Just missed" that you are particularly bullish on and have in your personal 101? also, what do you value more, high floor/close proximity to majors or high ceiling/more risky?
(hoosier from Indiana)
I'm pretty good about sneaking guys on like, say, Anderson Tejeda. Jose Albertos is the one that jumps out to me for that I guess. I wrote about this in the intro to the lists, but I think chasing upside is a necessity given how much harder it is to get above-average regulars onto your major league team nowadays. (The Top 101 Prospect Chat with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-02-06 23:00:00 (link to chat)Last season I went ahead on a flyer and drafted Oscar De la Cruz. This season I am thinking of targeting another Cubbie low minor pitcher in Jose Albertos. I enjoy going for those lottery tickets so any advice on Albertos? Worthy of being my lottery ticket?
(Leonard from None of Your Business)
He's tantalizing in that mold, sure. We ranked him aggressively on our Cubs list, but I tend to agree with Ben's take that while the upside is fun to think dirty thoughts about the odds are very, very long on him getting there. I'd just as soon shoot the moon with a 17-year-old bat. (Wilson Karaman)
2017-01-18 20:00:00 (link to chat)Where would you factor in the following names into your Top 50 2016 signees list: Jose Albertos, Fernando Tatis Jr, Jesus Sanchez, Sixto Sanchez? Thanks.
(Tim Raines from Cooperstown)
I probably wouldn't, except for Sixto. He's slide into the 30s somewhere. Also, congrats! Big day! (Bret Sayre)
