2019-02-06 21:00:00 (link to chat)Pure closer prospects are obviously kind of rare since usually they're failed starting pitching prospects, but are there any that fit that description worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues? Burdi, anyone else?
(Nothing from Clever)
Dylan Cease, Taylor Hearn and Nate Pearson are guys who I hope can stick in the rotation but who are honestly more likely to be closer-type relievers. Burdi is a good one. Dakota Hudson and Yency Almonte could get there. Another sleeper candidate -- Durbin Feltman in Boston. - BC (Dynasty 101 Chat w/ Ben Carsley and Bret Sayre)
2018-12-06 20:00:00 (link to chat)What happens with Dakota Hudson in 2019 with the Cardinals? RP? Chance to be a SP? Back to AAA?
(As A Rule from Lakewood CA)
I'd be shocked if he goes back to the minors. If I was calling the shots I'd run with him as a starter since the RP fallback is always there, but if they're competing he might just end up being one of these newfangled multi-inning setup guys. (Jarrett Seidler)
2017-08-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)30 team fantasy league where all minor leaguers are owned. Would you trade Dakota Hudson and TJ Zeuch for Keibert Ruiz? Thinking being the pitchers upside are moderate and keibert could one day be a top 5 catcher if everything breaks right
(Bob from Bobathonia)
Yeah I think I'd do that. I'm the kind of fantasy player who'll always trade minor league pitchers. When they hit it can be a little embarrassing, but more often than not they kind of flame out or don't live up to their potential. Now, admittedly, catchers can be even worse. However, if you're patient and willing to wait, a project catcher can be a wonderful little asset to let mature on yr bench.

Worst case scenario, you have someone who you can flip down the line on potential. I like it. (Trevor Strunk)
2017-04-28 13:30:00 (link to chat)I'm torn on Dakota Hudson. One hand, it's a limited, slider-reliant repertoire -- so he's a future reliever. Other hand, very efficient with pitch counts due to extreme groundball/strikeout profile, and a starter's frame. So, he's a rotation guy long term. Where do you fall, Craig?
(Race Bannon from Springfield)
Love this question. He's a guy you leave as a starter until you either need him in relief or he forces you there. But if we're talking about personal opinion, I think he lasts as a starter for a bit, possibly as a guy who benefits from the Third Time Through the Order approach teams are taking that I wrote about. Maybe he's good for 15-20 batters a game and then you turn it over to the bullpen, which is fine because he lacks the third pitch to turn the lineup over again anyway. (Craig Goldstein)
2017-03-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Last one:) Christian Pache, Dakota Hudson and Jhailyn Ortiz..are you high on any of them?
(Accudart from VT)
Out of that group, I'm most acquainted (natch) with Jhailyn Ortiz, and I'm surprisingly high on him. After all the rumors that he was a bust or not really the kind of prospect that anyone would expect him to be, he hit the ground running for the Phillies, and reports from some of my friends who scout the minors a bit more than me are positive. Fangraphs' Eric Longenhagen has a Phillies background so he's on point in this regard and he sees him in the same way a lot of folks saw Domingo Santana back in the day. (Trevor Strunk)
2017-01-31 19:00:00 (link to chat)I'm a rebuilder in my 24 team dynasty team and need to start getting some close to to ready MLB SP. What are some SP prospects I could get in return for Chatwood and Tyler Anderson ? I have Stephenson,Gonsalves,Fedde,Keller,Jay,Quantrill,Jordan Montgomery,Dakota Hudson,Lauer and Norge, Thanks
(NatiRedlegs1990 from Ohio)
I sort of love Tyler Anderson and have been grabbing him everywhere I can. I don't know how it happened.

It looks like you have a lot of good options and lottery tickets in the system already. I don't know if you could get top-tier guys that are close to ready with Chatwood or Anderson by themselves, but you could probably pair them with a prospect or two for an upgrade. (Mark Barry)
