2019-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)There have been a few SP that came out of nowhere (at least for me) that look quite good (perhaps some BABIP luck or SSS). What OFP/Likely grades would you give: Zach Plesac, Zac Gallen, Aaron Civale, Jordan Yamamoto, Cal Quantrill.
(The Colonel from Pasadena, CA)
Off the top of my head:

Gallen: 60/55
Yamamoto: 50/45
Quantrill: 60/50

I'm holding off on answering the Cleveland guys. I was just talking about them (and Bieber) and I need to dig in on what the coaching staff is doing to unlock these guys and if I view it as sustainable. (Craig Goldstein)
2018-07-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)I've been very underwhelmed by Cal Quantrill's numbers as a seventh overall selection out of Stanford with MLB bloodlines. Is the change still a MLB out pitch? Is the fastball just too meh? Command never materialized after TJS? Gonna be a long reliever? What's the rub with this dude?
(Jojo from SD)
He's not, like, bad or anything, probably aiming for a mid-rotation type outcome, and he was still a reasonably decent contender for the midseason 50. He's not consistent with his mechanics and the breaking ball has never really advanced as we'd have hoped. (Jarrett Seidler)
2018-02-28 20:00:00 (link to chat)Cal Quantrill feels like a guy who's value might peak at call up before debut, no? Should I sell before he hits MLB?
(Jojo from Sd)
I can agree with that, though that's the norm for most prospects, isn't it? I'm not terribly high on Quantrill but he's also a little overlooked. Great changeup, don't like that his Ks have been regressing. I'd tack him on as part of a larger package. (Eddy Almaguer)
2018-01-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)What is Cal Quantrill’s upside? Will he be an SP 3 or does he have a decent chance of being more than that?
(cracker73 from Florida)
He was pretty meh in a short Double A stint last year, but he's still coming back from TJS, so that's not totally surprising. I think SP# is probably best case scenario, sure. (Mark Barry)
2017-09-18 23:00:00 (link to chat)Any worries with Cal Quantrill’s meh K numbers? Is breaking ball good enough to be a 3 starter?
(sdsuphilip from San Diego)
That was my biggest question coming out of the two starts I caught earlier this year. His mechanics combusted on him in each look as well, though he's athletic enough to grow beyond that, and I'm willing to assign some still-not-that-far-removed-from-TJ leeway to him on that. It's a drop-and-drive delivery though, and if the timing issues that cropped up present as an ongoing issue into next year I'd be less enthusiastic about the command profile. The FB-CH combo's enough to get him into a rotation even without more than a fringe-average breaker, and the deuce'll flash much better than that. A higher-variance 6/5 still seems appropriate to me at this stage of things, because if he does indeed tighten up further removed from the knife there's a lot to like in the profile. We should be able to narrrow that window by a half-grade next year. Here's my report on him from June:

2017-05-15 17:00:00 (link to chat)Which side do you take? Acuna and Cal Quantrill for Schwarber.
(brad from NJ)
Tough call. Still think I want Schwarb but it's a conversation now, and it certainly wasn't one a month ago. (Mike Gianella)
2017-02-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)In a 16 team dynasty, if you could only have 1 player who would you rather have? Troy Tulowitzki, Archie Bradley, Cal Quantrill, AJ Puk or Youlieski Gurriel? I won't be in contention this year.
(fightingmoose from Manitoba, Canada)
Well, probably not Tulo, unless you can have him for a reasonable price and think someone will trade you for him mid-season. I'm not a big believer in Bradley either. Young pitching scares me, but Quantrill has the profile I like to invest in in dynasty. That said, my answer would be Gurriel, who may just be a nothing-bench-bat. But he could also very well be a starting middle infielder you can have for a song -- that kind of reward is worth the risk I think. (Trevor Strunk)
2016-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm at the Met museum of art in nyc. Who has the most creative front office in terms of the 2016 draft? Did anyone stand out by taking an innovative approach?
(Bseballkid from Nyc)
Its hard to say who had the most innovative - as most teams do that same thing with their pools to get creative with who they can get. I really liked seeing teams like the Red Sox, Yankees, and Giants just taking the best talent on the board (Groome, Rutherford, Reynolds) and dealing with the rest later. Bold strategy because of the budget pools, but also played out as well as the teams could have hoped. Giants getting Reynolds and Krook after not having a first round pick was great, not that Krook looked good this year but he has the history. I also liked the Padres, with a huge influx of different types. Cal Quantrill has looked awesome post TJS, Eric Lauer is as safe a bet as anyone in the draft to be a starter at the MLB level, and Hudson Potts (formerly Sanchez) was a interesting pick who the Padres loved, and came underslot. A draft I am interested in seeing how it turns out is the Cubs as well. They didn't have a pick until the third round, and with the scouting power they have I am excited to see how having all of their efforts focused on mid round talents ends up. (Midwest League Wrap Up)
2016-08-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)How would you personally rank the recent top 10 draftees/int'l signings?
(SK from MA)
There is so much manipulation with the pools now, the top ten picks aren't always the top ten talents. Guys like Groome and Rutherford would make a 101 while Cal Quantrill probably won't. The IFAs are even trickier. What do you do with Kevin Maitan for example? Or the Padres Cuban trio? Is Maitan a better prospect than whoever the 101st best stateside guy is (oh let's say Tyler Wade)? Most would say yes, I don't know that I have enough info to agree. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
