2019-09-06 12:00:00 (link to chat)Jordyn Adams didn't have a standout statistical season, but he more than held his own. For a guy with precious little high-level baseball experience, did he actually overachieve? Would you say he's proving to be a real baseball talent rather than "just" a premium athlete?
(Not Jordyn Adams from Here)
I don't know if I'd go with overachieve, but I think we do forget both just how brutal the MWL is to hit in for a 19-year-old and that not everyone is gonna be Jo Adell in the pros from day one (would that it were true). That said, he's still quite raw and it may take some time for the physical projection to, well project. I suspect he's more or less held serve as a prospect for us (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-08-30 16:00:00 (link to chat)Jon, this isn’t really Mike Trout. I often get frustrated with the Los Angeles of Anaheim largely because they have arguably one of the greatest positional players in history on their team in Mike Trout and they’re just never that good. Who in their minor league system is there to get excited about?
(Mike Trout from Anaheim, CA)
Well, there's this Jo Adell kid, who I'm told is pretty good.

But aside from him, ehhhhhhh maybe Brandon Marsh? Toolsy OF, pretty close to being ready. Don't know a ton about the low minors, and since the planet will be a sizzling husk by the time those guys become relevant, I'm not sure it matters. Carpe diem! (Jon Hegglund)
2019-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)How is west coast living so far? I was just out in Portland for a wedding and came back rather impressed with how the climate is around there. As for a fantasy dynasty baseball question, I have a glut of high upside outfielders on my roster (including Jo Adell), would I be wise to try and shop around Max Keplar this offseason to try and sell high on him?
(Mike from The Good Land)
The West Coast is a different world, man. It's the dry season now, so it's like 80 degrees, sunny, and not humid every single day. Then it's a gorgeous 60 degrees every night. No wonder everyone is outside all the time here! As for Kepler, I like him a lot, as long as the rabbit ball stays in place. He's got a bit of BABIP movement that could see him hit .275, too. But, yes, if you have a lot of outfielders, you should be shopping him. (JP Breen)
2019-07-31 12:00:00 (link to chat)What team could use Kole Calhoun? With Trout manning CF, Justin Upton solidly in LF, and Jo Adell loudly knocking on the door, Calhoun's 2020 option is reasonable, but not on the Angels. Why do we hear buzz about Castellanos, but not Calhoun?
(Dylan from RI)
Easy answer used to be Cleveland but they just picked up two outfielders. Braves could maybe use him since they're playing a (hot, admittedly) Duvall right now? I think the Angels unload him in the offseason. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-07-11 23:00:00 (link to chat)In a 20 team, keep forever dynasty league with an outfield of Yelich, Acuna, Juan Soto, Schwarber, and Jo Adell. I have been trying to move Adell for pitching (active or prospect), but I am getting little reasonable interest. Am I overvaluing? What pitchers should I target?
(beringstorm from Tacoma)
Nice disguise, Craig. You are not overvaluing, he's the #2 prospect in all of baseball. In a 20-team I would require a top-10 starter as the starting point of a package if'n I were to move Adell (which you should only do right now if the arm you acquire is going to chase a title for you this year) (Wilson Karaman)
2019-07-09 12:00:00 (link to chat)Adell, keller, madrigal, trammell. Least mlb impact over years 20 & 21? Who should I shop for this year improvements?
(Vic from Iowa)
Keller or Trammell. Madrigal is close and will get you steals even if he isn't a star. I have my concerns about Keller's continued development in his org, although I can't really bake that into his ranking as much as you'd think. Trammell is in the process of unborking some swing stuff so that might take some time. Hold Jo Adell close and never let him go. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-07-09 12:00:00 (link to chat)What odds do you give for these prospects to debut THIS season: Jo Adell, Luis Robert, Casey Mize, Dustin May, Bo Bichette, Gavin Lux.
(The Colonel from Pasadena, CA)
Best bets are probably Bichette as a September call up and May as a utility arm for the stretch run/playoffs. I imagine the Tigers are going to be very cautious with Mize after the shoulder issue. Robert and Lux could hypothetically be an injury away at some point though. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-07-09 12:00:00 (link to chat)How good is Jo Adell going to be? And are there anymore prospects in the pipeline that can help him and Trout in the next couple of seasons?
(Patrick from San Antonio)
Angels system is sneaky good now, but some of the next couple of seasons help (Marsh, Jones) has stagnated a bit. Adell and Trout gives you a heckuva core though. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-07-08 20:00:00 (link to chat)Will Ospreay is the Jo Adell of wrestling. It’s really stupid that he’s not at the top of everybody’s lists right now.
(The Whole Damn Show from @deeej15)
We have reached the wrestling segment of the chat.

I like this comparison, in that Ospreay is the most talented and spectacular wrestler in the world, just like Adell is the most talented and spectacular prospect, but Okada has that certain floor that Franco provides. And there's arguments for any of them. (Jarrett Seidler)
2019-06-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Given the gap between the Astros and everyone else in the AL West so far this year, and the baseline they're working from talent-wise, when do you see the potential for a challenger in the division, a la the Twins taking over Cleveland's assumed top spot in the Central? Same goes for the Dodgers and the NL West.
(Carl from Richmond, VA)
The Astros and Dodgers definitely seem to be better set up for the future than almost anyone in baseball, despite the incredible baseline they've been working from for three seasons now. So I know what you mean. That said, one only need to look at Cleveland to remember things can change dramatically over the course of a season (though Houston seems more inclined to plug holes with cash). I can't imagine that MIke trout, a healthy Shohei Ohtani and maybe Jo Adell won't be able to get over the .500 gap next season, and the A's seem congenitally inclined to turn on a dime. The Padres, meanwhile, loom in the NL West. It's hard to not worry that this is just how things are in MLB now, with one or two serious division races all season, but I have to hope that's not the way of the future for the league. (Ginny Searle)
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)
2019-04-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Craig Have you had any news about Jo Adell timeline to start swinging ,extent of injury etc? Thanks.
(boatman44 from Liverpool)
No real changes from what was announced in the spring. Look for him to get back to it around draft time. No reason to rush him back from his injuries. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-03-11 16:00:00 (link to chat)In a 10-team mixed, 6x6 H2H keeper league (AVG, OPS, QS, K/9 + other standard stats), 15 keepers, pretty deep rosters. Based on our league and draft settings (details unimportant), I am likely set up for drafting either Ohtani or Jo Adell (my favorite prospect still available) as a keeper in a keep-forever league. Who are you taking?
(Ben from Alabama)
It's Ohtani for me. Adell is a terrific prospect but it's hard to compete with a guy who has already shown high-end major league ability on both sides of the ball. If Ohtani makes the two-way thing work over a full season, he's a first round pick, and he has two paths to premium value even if he doesn't. (Darius Austin)
2019-03-08 16:00:00 (link to chat)Franco or Adell?
(Sammy from Miami)
I've gotta go with Jo Adell. I like his speed more than Wander Franco's, so he has a higher chance of being a true five-category guy. But I don't blame you if you want an elite MI guy. Franco offers better batting average upside, which is becoming as rare as stolen bases. Really it's a choice between two top-10 guys who aren't that far apart. (Kevin Jebens)
2019-02-06 21:00:00 (link to chat)Jordyn Adams, decent shot he's the big riser on the 101 next year?
(Graig Coldstein from Duke)
It's really all about the hit tool with the uber-toolsy athlete types. If he looks good or even just holds his own against more advanced pitching? You betcha. But I think Adams is going to be a slow burn guy -- Jo Adell is the exception, not the rule - BC (Dynasty 101 Chat w/ Ben Carsley and Bret Sayre)
2019-02-06 21:00:00 (link to chat)Question on how these rankings work. Based on these rankings, in a dynasty format you would always chose the player that is ranked above the other? For example in a dynasty draft would you take Bichette over Whitley because Bichette is ranked 12th while Whitley is ranked 16th? Or do you prefer whitley over the few guys ahead of him like Kiriloff, Riley and Bichette? Just trying to figure out the best way to read the list. Thank you.
(Fish and Chips from Seaside)
To best use this list, you have to know where you are in the contention cycle and what your league tends to value most. If you're ready to compete right now, there's a good argument for taking, say, Kyle Tucker over Jo Adell, etc. If you have a loaded infield and zero pitching and want to pop Whitley over Bichette, that's fine too. Basically, we make tiers because we're saying you can prefer any one player over any other in that tier and we'd understand. What we wouldn't understand is preferring, like, Kristian Robinson to Jesus Luzardo. When guys are many tiers apart we suggest using it more as a straight valuation list/guide. - BC (Dynasty 101 Chat w/ Ben Carsley and Bret Sayre)
