DateQuestionAnswer
2019-08-30 16:00:00 (link to chat)How would you rank these pitching prospects in a dynasty league: Albert Abreu, Trevor Rogers, Patrick Weigel, Joey Wentz? I'm having trouble weighing reliever risk against upside.
(Pete from Rhode Island)
Ah, a prospect question! Keeping in mind that I'm Not a Prospect Guy, I would say that Abreu excites me the most out of this quartet, but I would be shocked if he doesn't end up in the pen. Rogers and Wentz could be decentish, while Weigel is already pitching out of the pen in AAA. (Jon Hegglund)
2016-12-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Favorite breakout prospect for 2017? What about someone who you think will suffer a drop in status?
(Francisco from Maryland)
Breakouts I'll be watching for: Anderson Tejeda, Dustin May, Joey Wentz, Riley Pint
Guys I could see falling: Jorge Mateo, Adonis Medina, Anderson Espinoza, Jahmai Jones (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-08-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Rank the following prospects: Mitch Keller, Fernando Romero, Mike Soroko, Joey Wentz. Thanks!
(Jeb from Johnson City)
I'm a huge fan of Mitch Keller. I'd go Keller, Soroka, Wentz, Romero -- with a gap between Wentz and Romero. (J.P. Breen)
2016-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any mets prospects you like more than the average guy?
(Gary from NJ)
Kingsport:
-Chris Viall--XXL (6'9'') power arm from Stanford, has a lot of stuff, we'll see if anything can click control/command/consistency-wise.
-Jake Simon--LHP was the team's 11th-rounder in 2015, over-slot prep southpaw from Texas. Striking out hitters and keeping a ton of balls on the ground over a solid showing for Kingsport every fifth day.

Brooklyn: Pete Alonso, Blake Tiberi both college performers who fit that Harrison Bader type of player (talked about earlier) where they'll have to perform at every level...but also have the chance to be the types of grinders who just go out and do that.

Definitely will give Thomas Szapucki his own little bit here, though. There are a few more I could mention, but he really impressed when he was in the Appy League and he got promoted. High school lefty in 2015 in the first 10 rounds from a Florida high school. Really tough angle on hitters with an arm-slot that's death for lefties, especially. Gets good run on a fastball that touched 96 most every start (sitting 92-94) with some feel for a slider. It isn't an Anderson Espinoza type of low-level minors pitching prospect where you're really pushing a teenage pitcher way up your minor league prospect board, but Szapucki has been the type of guy you see in the Appy League who has a lot of big league ingredients, and you take note of that.

Good year for Appy League lefties overall. Kolby Allard was there, now Joey Wentz is, and there's Resly Linares for Princeton (Rays) as well as Szapucki, obviously. (Adam McInturff)
