DateQuestionAnswer
2019-03-04 16:00:00 (link to chat)Does Austin Beck make substantial progress in hitting for power this year?
(Garth from Toronto)
We never can be sure what kind of offseason work players are doing, but I'd say no right now. He was still too ground ball heavy in 2018 and didn't even really impress with gap power with only 29 doubles in a full season of A-Ball. Lots of work to do to get to the game power. (Scott Delp)
2019-01-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)How close was Austin Beck to making the list? Heard his hitting was coming around later in the season.
(Beck The Musician from Motown)
Gonna need to see some of that raw power actually get into games first. But I do love tools bets, (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-01-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Seuly Matias has the big power, but unlike the comp in his top 10 profile, he hasn't shown the OBP/BB skills that Joey Gallo has. What are you all seeing that suggests he could get to some of his power in games, hence his ranking? Thanks!
(Steve from KC)
Well, he's gotten it into minor league games, so this isn't an Austin Beck or Leody Taveras type situation, but I get what you mean. It's an athleticism and swing bet, as he isn't as yolked up or long as your typical elite power guy and it's not an awful approach, perhaps just a bit raw for full season. We think it will come with more reps, but... (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-08-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)Austin Beck had a successful full season debut didn't he?
(Archie from The family)
Yup! I have high hopes for him. (Eddy Almaguer)
2018-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Austin Beck? I thought it was a mistake for the A's to draft him, though, not as big of a mistake as drafting Kyler Murray this year.
(Dave from Fairfax)
I think he's too young to be called a bust, I would like to see where he is at this time next year. The bat seems to be coming around a bit. That being said, in my look at the MWL All Star Game nothing in his game stood out to me. (Nathan Graham)
2018-02-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)In your opinion who is the most exciting Oakland Athletics prospect?
(Sean from Los Angeles)
Austin Beck will not be boring, however it plays out. (Top 101 with Jeffrey Paternostro)
