BP Chats

2019-09-27 12:00:00 (link to chat)Taylor Trammell arrow pointing back up? His swing looks different since joining the Padres
(Dan from San Diego)
He could have done nothing but hit that grand slam in the playoffs and I'd be all the way back in, (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-08-02 16:00:00 (link to chat)Do you believe Taylor T will have MLB fantasy value by the end of 2020? Or, could he easily be a Bradley Zimmer and struggle initially?
(Vic from Baltimore)
Vic, get that Bradley Zimmer comp out of your mouth! I think your question is both a Taylor Trammell question and a Manny Margot question. I could easily see Trammell as an early-season call-up, particularly if the Padres want to move on from Margot (and assuming they're OK with Trammell in CF). And of course Trammell could struggle initially; most prospects do. My money is on some late-season 2020 flash, and then he's wildly overdrafted in 2021. (Jon Hegglund)
2019-07-19 12:00:00 (link to chat)Is Taylor Trammell blocked currently in CIN or is a matter of needing more time in the minors still?
(Craig from Chicago)
There's a fair bit of moving parts here. Senzel probably moves back to the infield next year, opening a spot. Trammell is going to need to make some swing tweaks to unlock some stuff before he forces the issue. The timing could be fluid, injuries happen, but I'd expect him to be "ready" by midseason 2020. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-07-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)I can have Taylor Trammell for 2020 and 2021? Or, I can trade him for 2 months of Chris Sale. Should I? Do you feel Trammell is receiving full time MLB ABs this time next year?
(Vic from Baltimore)
I love Trammell, but he hasn't really been very good this year. I'd be surprised if he's seeing regular PT this time next season. Which means it's 2021 Trammell vs 2019 Sale. I'm taking Sale. (Mark Barry)
2019-06-10 20:00:00 (link to chat)Have you heard anything about Taylor Trammell at all lately? He‚Äôs still finding a way to get on base, but his average and power are totally in the tank. Just a 2 month short sample adjusting to new league?
(Joe from Chicago)
I'm not worried. Trammell never profiled as a particularly fast-moving prospect aside from on the field, where he does indeed move rather fast. I'm more concerned about the power than the average, tbh, but as you said, he's still finding ways to be semi-productive. Still a future OF2 and top-20 fantasy prospect for me. (Ben Carsley)
2019-05-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are your top 10 dynasty hitting prospects right now?
(Eugene from Monroe)
For guys that haven't debuted yet, I'll say: Wander Franco, Keston Hiura, Kyle Tucker, Jo Adell, Alex Kiriloff, Austin Riley, Taylor Trammell, Brendan Rodgers, Luis Robert and Yordan Alvarez (Mark Barry)
2019-05-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Dynasty league question please - when it comes to bats, list the top three that you see as having the best chance to land on the top 20 prospect list for 2020? How about for 2021 please? thanks
(Marcolio from Gallipoli, Italy)
A good place to start is our top 101 this year. Wander Franco, Jo Adell, Taylor Trammell, etc. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-05-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in a dynasty league and my hitting is stacked but my pitching stinks. Which pitching prospects can you think of thatd be worth trading Taylor Trammell for straight up?
(Kyle from Seattle)
I consulted Bret Sayre regarding this and he said "none. None pitching prospects." I think by that he means go get an established guy who can help you immediately, not trade a safer bat type for a riskier pitching type. If you need it to be a prospect, the answer is probably Forrest Whitley, but even then... (Craig Goldstein)
2018-08-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you ask one of the prospect guys who you'd rather have long term Jesus Sanchez or Taylor Trammell. Thanks.
(Jordan from SD)
Jordan, I don't know if you're trolling me, but the straight answer is that sometimes when I do these I have one or two prospects guys lined up on the bat-phone for questions like these, but I neglected to do so this time. Sorry! They will be chatting soon, promise. (Rob Mains)
2018-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)who are your favorite prospects that put up a big second half or are due for a big bump on the 2019 preseason rankings?
(Chansen8895 from San jose)
I think familiar names that will take a big leap would be Ke'Bryan Hayes, Wander Franco, Trevor Larnach and Taylor Trammell. I sort of like Miguel Amaya as an under-the-radar guy as well. And, like, everyone in the Padres org. (Mark Barry)
2018-07-13 15:00:00 (link to chat)Were there any guys you really pushed for in the Top 50, or that you were notably higher than other BP staff on?
(Jefferson Airplane from Canada)
Taylor Trammell is probably the big one. It's just a profile I love even though I fully admit it might not be huge upside. I got plenty of uh feedback from the staff on Leody Taveras too, but I'm gonna be ride or die there for another year. We're obviously very aggressive on May as well and that is mostly, though not entirely, me. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-06-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Jesus Sanchez a top 25 prospect yet, or does this need to be seen in the high minors?
(Carl from Singapore)
I think because of the profile, I'm going to want to see it in the high minors, and he'll end up behind like Taylor Trammell, fairly or unfairly. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-05-25 12:15:00 (link to chat)In a time where it seems like so many players develop unexpected power in the pros is that one of the tools I should care least about for fantasy scouting purposes? I traded away Albies last year because I didnt want a 30 power bat, and now am seriously regretting it. Should I be assuming now that a projected 15/15 hr/sb projected prospect could be more of a 20/10 guy? Im thinking like a Taylor Trammell or Jesus Sanchez. Thanks.
(Jason from Chicago)
This is a fair question, and I'm not sure I have a completely fair answer. My best advice is to look at the text of the reports for context. Not every guy with a 15 hr likelihood is going to get the same bump. There are some who have a better chance of boosting their power output than others. My colleague Jarrett Seidler has a pet theory that the guys with premium contact skills can make that launch angle adjustment/tradeoff better than others, which makes some sense. I think Trammell is a guy who could have more power output because he's still growing into his body. Sanchez I haven't seen nearly enough of, but people speak highly to be ball coming off his bat. I get why the Albies thing hurts you, and I was way off on him too - which I've copped to. That said, I'm not sure the right adjustment is: assume everyone with that profile overperforms their anticipated power output. (Craig Goldstein)
2018-05-25 12:15:00 (link to chat)What's your assessment of Taylor Trammell so far this year? Already about half way to last year's HR totals but also only 5/10 in SB's. Think they stick him in AA soon and let him stay there for the rest of the season?
(gfhyde from Toronto)
Yeah I'm not going to stress about the distribution of his output at this point. We know he's fast and that he knows how to run. The power addition is a nice little thing, and we'll keep an eye on if/how it continues. I am always a fan of getting aggressive with strong natural talents, so I'd advocate for a bump, but the FSL is no joke in terms of hitting and the Reds have been pretty steady with other top prospects, so I wouldn't anticipate a promotion before mid-season. (Craig Goldstein)
2018-04-16 14:00:00 (link to chat)Taylor Trammell a superstar?
(Keith from Portland)
The big question there is on defense. If the arm can keep him in center, everything else says he'll be very good. If he has to move to left, then he's less of a star and more of a solid regular. (Scott Delp)
2018-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Potential of Taylor Trammell?
(Dan from CT)
From what I've heard, it's limited by defense. The arm is the issue. I don't like him nearly as much if he can't stick in center, obviously. There's enough of an offensive profile there for him to be a solid LF, but he could be special if he can play a passable CF. (Anthony Rescan)
2018-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Taylor Trammell the next Ronald Acuna? Or another player that could be in that mold?
(Mike from Chicago)
That's a bit bold, in my opinion. Acuna is real special. (Anthony Rescan)
2018-02-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)Which player inside the top 101 causes the most debate? Why?
(Dayman from Philly)
I think the most contentious arguments this year were Chance Adams and Taylor Trammell. (Top 101 with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-02-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give us 3 guys on the back half of the list you could see moving into the top 25 for next year's list?
(Otilio G. from Atlanta)
Other than Robert, I'll throw in Heliot Ramos, Taylor Trammell, and the Jesus Lizard. (Top 101 with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-02-28 20:00:00 (link to chat)Who might you invest in late round high upside pick in a 4 year keeper? Monte Harrison or Taylor Trammell?
(Chris from Baltimore)
Love both these guys, but give me Trammell. Not as much injury history as Monte, played most of full-season ball as a 19 year old and improved his K% and BB%. I think he climbs even higher. (Eddy Almaguer)
2018-02-23 20:00:00 (link to chat)What are some players you are most looking forward to seeing this year?
(kcshankd from Cascadia)
Gee, a ton of them. I like seeing some of the lesser-regarded guys trying to find value. I am lucky in that I live midway between Daytona and Jacksonville so I can see the Double-A Southern League and the High-A Florida State League. The home teams have several guys Iím excited to see. Monte Harrison in Jax and Taylor Trammell and Jose Siri in Daytona. Iím hoping to get better looks at Eloy, Austin Riley, Zac Collins. Then there is always a Bravesí pitcher. This season is Kyle Wright. Too many to list... (Scott Delp)
2017-05-22 23:00:00 (link to chat)Got some questions on low level prospects who seem to be performing well in Taylor Trammell, Lewin Diaz & Tatis Jr. Has your opinion changed on any of these players if you had any coming into the season?
(Leonard from None of Your Business )
Trammell's an Athlete, and it's been encouraging that he's held his own with the stick so far given he was thought to be fairly baseball-raw coming into the draft. Advanced approach has stood out, even as a report I've heard indicates his swing mechanics are still pretty inconsistent swing-to-swing. Diaz is one of those dudes who was always going to be a slower burn, but early full-season returns are encouraging. Still very aggressive, but it's broadly the good kind of in-zone aggressiveness. He has massive power and pairs it with some intriguing contact skills. Tatis is grabbing the Midwest League by the horns and showing some real high-end projection already. He's probably done the most early on to improve his lot, though all three have had really nice starts to their seasons. (Wilson Karaman)
2017-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Taylor Trammell an Anthony Alford clone?
(Clnbailey from VA)
Not an awful comp, handedness aside. Alford is another tier up on the athleticism scale though. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-03-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of this Kevin Garnett-esqu trade in a 30 team dynasty league: Andrew Benintendi for German Marquez, Jacob Nix, Brock Stewart, Chance Adams, Taylor Trammell, Luis Urias, TJ Friedl, and Ricardo Cespedes?
(Bob from Georgia)
I have no idea whether this is a good trade or not. It depends too much on too many things I don't know. I don't play dynasty leagues. Best guess: if you're willing to trade present for future, I really like the idea and several of these names. Go for it. (Matthew Trueblood)
2017-01-18 20:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Bret, I could use some help on deep dynasty assets for a prospect draft. 20 team dynasty league, 150+ prospects owned. I have two upcoming picks and I've put together a list of 10 guys that I'm having a terrible time differentiating. My list is: Jake Bauers, Jahmai Jones, Lucas Erceg, Christin Stewart, Taylor Trammell, Alec Hansen, Walker Buehler, Sixto Sanchez, Justin Dunn, Sandy Alcantara I was thinking about one hitter and one pitcher but really I just want the two best values from that list. How would you rank the top 3-5 in case a few get taken between my picks? Obviously some of them are closer to the majors and some are much farther away which is why I'm struggling. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
(treynay3 from Grand Rapids)
I'd go Jones, Alcantara, Erceg, Dunn. (Bret Sayre)
