DateQuestionAnswer
2019-04-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are Gilbert Lara and KJ Harrison anything now? They're both off to blazing starts in their first action in the Nats org. Could they be change of scenery post hype sleepers?
(Andrew from Boston)
Ben Spanier wrote up Lara for us earlier this year (https://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/article/48330/notes-from-the-field-april-9-2019/) and he's basically the same guy he was before on a hot start.

Harrison might have some changes in him so far. He's increased his exit velo from prior years and generally looks pretty good as a hitter right now. That said he's 22 and in Low-A, so take it with a pretty significant grain of salt. (Craig Goldstein)
