DateQuestionAnswer
2019-06-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Craig: My team in a 16 tm. 12 kpr. pts. league is doing unexpectedly well. But I need another decent SP to compete in the playoffs. If I had to part with one of these prospects to get one, which one should it be: Dylan Carlson, Jesus Sanchez, Nate Pearson, Carter Kieboom or K. Hiura? Very low deduction for Ks by a batter in this pts. league. I should note: that Ketel Marte is having a surprisingly good season for me at 2B. Thx!
(balticwolf from Bethesda MD)
of those names I'd go with Jesus Sanchez at the moment. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-06-14 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who wins this deal? Yordan Alvarez Carter Kieboom, Peter Alonso, Sixto Sanchez, and Austin Riley for Trevor Bauer and Freddie Freeman?
(Kenny from Kansas)
In the near, short, or long-term? Seems like near-term Bauer and Freeman are productive now. At some point it will shift to the other side of the deal. (Don't ask me when. I have no idea.) (Rob Arthur)
2019-05-24 15:00:00 (link to chat)I missed the boat on this latest run of propsect call-ups, but I'm still in a good position for playoffs in my points league. Who is your current late-season stash that I can add and hold?
(Mike G from Seattle)
Weird, I know a "Mike G" in Seattle! Take a look at Monte Harrison, Daz Cameron, Yusniel Diaz, Jorge Mateo, and Christian Pache, for starters. Keep tabs on Bo Bichette's health. Possibly get back on on Carter Kieboom if someone dropped him. I wouldn't necessarily add any of these now, but they should be on your radar. (Jon Hegglund)
2019-04-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is it time to adjust expectations for Carter Kieboom? I just want you to tell me he’s a future fantasy star
(Charlie from San Jose)
I'm not ready to go to fantasy star just yet. The early returns are great and I've always been a fan of Kieboom, so I don't want to diminish his hype either. It's worth noting that the International League is now using the same balls that MLB is, and we've seen a resulting jump in home runs across the league. Now, perhaps that bodes well for Kieboom's power output in the league, but it does get a little complicated to know what the MLB balls are going to look like in any given year, and how that will affect the league. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-04-10 21:00:00 (link to chat)How long will Wilmer Defoe hold down the shortstop position over Carter Kieboom? Until Turner comes back,3 days or 2 weeks?
(boatman44 from Liverpool)
Barring a setback of some sort for Turner, I think you're mostly dealing with Difo holding down the fort. The Nats have publicly said they want Kieboom to get reps at second base and be comfortable at both middle infield spots before he comes up -- a matter of making sure he's ready to contribute in this year's race and in the longer term. (Zach Crizer)
2019-04-26 16:00:00 (link to chat)Miller and Betances - droppable? Drafted 'em for help with ratios (K/9 league) but offense is sputtering. Thinking Christian Walker and Carter Kieboom. 12 team H2H OBP keeper league.
(mordecofe1 from NYC)
Rob Silver had a great piece today about middle relievers being less valuable than ever, it's a pretty interesting development. I don't know when Betances will be back, and Miller has been low-key bad aside from the strikeouts, so I'd be cool moving on from both in favor of those guys.

Here's the link to that piece btw: https://www.baseballprospectus.com/fantasy/article/48833/fantasy-freestyle-the-death-of-fantasy-starting-pitchers/ (Mark Barry)
2018-12-06 20:00:00 (link to chat)What is Carter Kieboom's ETA and will his ceiling exceed Chris Sabo before we know it?
(Wink Wink from Oh?)
Kieboom might be up by the second half next year. Chris Sabo was a lot better in his late-20s than you'd think. (Jarrett Seidler)
2018-07-24 20:00:00 (link to chat)20-Team Keep Forever Dynasty: Bryce Harper, Carter Kieboom, Rd 1 pick, Rd 2 Pick (2-round draft, 40 picks total) for Juan Soto, Josh Hader, Shohei Ohtani (pitching version). Team getting Harper side is in the bottom 3, team getting Soto side is in top 5, fair deal?
(AJ from Phoenix)
Fair, yes. I like the Harper side more despite my love of Juan Soto. (Scooter Hotz)
2018-07-24 20:00:00 (link to chat)Who are the top 5 shortstops to you in a dynasty format?
(Joe from AL)
Lindor, Baez, Bregman (if he retains eligibility), Manny Machado, Xander Bogaerts, Trea Turner

On the prospect side, I love Carter Kieboom. I like Bo Bichette's bat a ton, but I think he'll end up at 2B. Wander Franco is interestig but very young and a ways away. (Scooter Hotz)
2018-07-24 20:00:00 (link to chat)Who is the prospect you love that people aren't talking enough about?
(Andrew from Springfield)
Well, it can't be Alex Kirilloff because everyone's talking about him. I'm tempted to say Carter Kieboom, a guy I love, but I don't think he's much of a secret at this point either. I'll go with AJ Puk, a guy who was dazzling and knocking on the doors of the big leagues when he hit the sidelines for Tommy John surgery. If he comes back and is roughly the same pitcher, he could make an impact in the majors fairly quickly. (Scooter Hotz)
2018-07-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Carter Kieboom just keeps hitting. Where are you on him? Does him replacing Murphy at 2b in 2019 sound about right to you (assuming he isn't traded).
(Potato Latkes from The Table)
Replacing Murphy to start the 2019 season seems a bit aggressive. With Difo in the fold, the Nats can be patient and not start Kieboom's clock any earlier than necessary. Getting his feet wet in AA right now, he's certainly on track to get his chance sometime in 2019, though. (Scott Delp)

2018-07-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Carter Kieboom if he can stick at short?
(Mike from NY)
It's not totally out of the question. More "probably not" dudes are playing there in the majors than ever used to thanks to positioning advances. (Jarrett Seidler)
2018-06-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Carter Kieboom legit? It seems like people are starting to buy into the bat *and* the glove this year.
(Andrew from Boston)
Sure. We liked him last year a lot, and he likely would have been Top 50 if he hadn't missed so much time with injury. I don't know if he has huge star upside, but high probability good regular for me...somewhere. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-06-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will Luis Garcia be the top 2B prospect in 2 years? If not him, who?
(Steve from DC)
Jarrett's liked him more at third this year, but a lot of this is gonna depend on what the Nats look like in two years, or maybe what Carter Kieboom looks like in two years. I'll also suggest that we aren't so high on him that your first question is a likely yes for me. It's more likely to be like Andres Gimenez or Royce Lewis or Wander Javier or someone like that. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-06-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Carter Kieboom - the top SS prospect next year?
(Ben from NH)
I don't know if he's a shortstop next year. Probably Lewis or Bichette anyway. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-04-27 12:00:00 (link to chat)Concerned about Carter Kieboom's slow start?
(Eric from Modesto)
Not really, since he's about four extra singles short of this not even being a question in my queue. Victor saw Potomac recently though, so I should probably check in with him on this before I spout off too strongly. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-02-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)Where do Carter Kieboom and Juan Soto rank if they stayed healthy and kept producing last season?
(AJ from Boston)
I had Soto around Eloy when that came up on the podcast. Kieboom probably jumps to the top of the "Good A-ball guys" tier (Trammell, Sanchez, Jones) (Top 101 with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-07-31 23:00:00 (link to chat)If I remember correctly, Carter Kieboom got some consideration for the Midseason Top 50. Could you give some more details on his s outing report and profile?
(Buff from CO)
Yeah, if he hadn't shredded up his hamstring it's even money he would've made it - he was on the back end on a couple early iterations as was. Very good command of his physicality, direct swing, all-fields hitter with some pop, solid-average across-the-board offensive skills. Borderline as a shortstop, though he's got some quickness and arm strength for the left side. (Wilson Karaman)
2017-07-06 12:00:00 (link to chat)Carter Kieboom was in consideration for a top-50 slot? What's changed with him?
(Andrew from DC)
He was. Basically he got hurt. So the track record is just shorter. He was also on various iterations of the list, and would be in the next 10-15. I know these become boring answers but it's what happened. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-06-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)Purely Fantasy - Carter Kieboom or Bo Bichette. Or is there a better up and coming SS?
(Bradley from Chicago\)
Bichette, but neither is a particularly good bet to stay at short. (Jarrett Seidler)
2017-05-15 17:00:00 (link to chat)Who is the better prospect for fantasy, Bo Bichette or Carter Kieboom?
(cracker73 from Florida)
Bichette has more of a ceiling but I still like Kieboom better, even in fantasy. (Mike Gianella)
2017-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of potential does Carter Kieboom have? Future Stud?
(Dan from DC)
Lots of Kieboom questions. He's 19-years-old and has played 56 games as a professional. I'm waiting for more data and scouting reports before labeling him a "future stud." He's years away people. (George Bissell)
2017-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Carter Kieboom - a top 25 prospect by the end of the season?
(Ben from DC)
Probably not. Check back in June. (George Bissell)
2017-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Bo Bichette or Carter Kieboom - Purely Fantasy?
(Ed from Toronto)
Bichette (George Bissell)
2017-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Deep Dynasty League, keep forever, 200+ prospects rostered - Who'd you rather have right now: Anderson Tejeda or Carter Kieboom?
(Eric from Barrie)
Tejada for me. (George Bissell)

(Eric from Barrie)
Tejada for me. (George Bissell)
2017-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Carter Kieboom or Andrese Gimenez for fantasy long-term?
(Max from (DC))
Kieboom. (George Bissell)
2017-05-22 23:00:00 (link to chat) For purely fantasy - Carter Kieboom or Bo Bichette?
(Seth from NYC)
I'll take Bichette because I'm a sucker for violent swings with violent results. I like Kieboom a lot too though, wrote optimistic things about him pre-season. He just sustained what sounds like a fairly significant hamstring injury, unfortunately, which'll likely knock him out for a while. Bummer given the early groove. (Wilson Karaman)
2017-05-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)For purely fantasy - Carter Kieboom or Bo Bichette?
(Seth from NYC)
Man, this is well within the fudge factor for me, both potential plus offensive forces, both probably not shortstops long term, it might come down to ultimate positional home, but I think I'd take Kieboom's bat at this point. Might change my mind in a week though. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-11-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Speaking of NL East shortstops, do you have any insight on Carter Kieboom? It seemed like no one thought he would stick at short pre-draft.
(Andrew from DC)
I don't know that 40 games in the complex changes the long term profile much. I like him, love the swing, think he can get to double-digit home runs, but that's not amazing if he ends up at third. If I was more certain he was a shortstop long term, he'd be higher on the Nats list, but these things take time to sort out. (see Cecchini, Gavin). (Jeffrey Paternostro)
