DateQuestionAnswer
2019-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you say a few words about Esteury Ruiz and whether you think he will end up being a productive Major Leaguer?
(Where Did He Go? from Unknown)
Sure, its a tantalizing power/speed combo, but there's underlying questions about the bat-to-ball and the glove. We'll probably know more in the upper minors. (San Diego Padres Top 10 Prospects)
2019-12-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where will a likely Rule 5 draft selection fall in this Org top 20?
(Mark from Maryland)
So if it's just a hard-throwing reliever dude that's mostly ready probably in the back of the Top 20, if they took like best prospect available and grabbed like Shervyen Newton or Esteury Ruiz, they might slot around Antuna and Romero, (Washington Nationals Top 10 Chat)
2018-07-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Esteury Ruiz as both a real life and dynasty prospect?
(George from San Diego)
I write a deep dynasty names column twice a month based on names that pop on an excel I use to find guys to draft in my minor league free agent drafts. Ruiz was a name that popped after the 2016 season. I like him both ways, but the steals are fantasy gold. He'll hit no matter what, though there is more swing and miss than I'd like. The big question is position. He does not have the softest hands and he has played a good bit of third base this season. A move to the outfield would not be a surprise, but the bat should still play. (Scott Delp)
2018-06-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)How would you rank the following for dynasty fantasy purposes: Cavan Biggio, Esteury Ruiz, Oneil Cruz, Shed Long, Ke'Bryan Hayes. Thanks in advance.
(Enrique from The Ranch)
What a weird hodgepodge. Probably Shed/Hayes/Biggio/Cruz/Ruiz (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-04-16 14:00:00 (link to chat)Just how good is Esteury Ruiz?
(Kevin from My neighbor's driveway)
He has a chance to be very good, but it's a long road. The big question is whether he can make enough contact. If he does, he can be a solid regular. (Scott Delp)
2018-04-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Currently rebuilding a dynasty team: Who has bigger upside, more likely big league impact at the keystone - Shed Long or Esteury Ruiz?
(GBdontgivea&^% from Wisconsin)
Ruiz is my guy. Age 19, good speed and athelicism, should be at least average across the board in roto categories with good bat speed. Higher ceiling but longer wait. Long is 22, struggled in his short Double-A stint, but was solid in High-A. A converted catcher, so maybe he gets on track quickly, and at least his BB% and contact rate improved at Double-A. (Kevin Jebens)
2017-07-31 23:00:00 (link to chat)Esteury Ruiz has gotten some love lately, can you give us your thoughts?
(Bob from Bob)
Craig summed him up delightfully in our TA when he was traded the other day based on what I've heard of him:
