DateQuestionAnswer
2019-01-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Since your Brew Crew list isn't out yet, can you share thoughts on Keston Hiura? BA cited "best 2B in baseball" upside - are you guys similarly high on him?
(David from Atlanta, GA)
We ranked him sixth on the national list, in between Victor Robles and Forrest Whitley, and he's getting written as a 7/6 on the Brewers list, probably low risk. So yep. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-11-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Keston Hiura sure sounds like the real deal (hitting at all levels so far and AFL MVP) but would likely be a key piece moved in a deal for a #1 starter (Thor, Bumgarner). Didn't 2018 show you can thrive with a bunch of #3s and 4s and a top pen?
(sportsguy21792 from WI)
It's a difficult trick to repeat though. Because those 3s and 4s are 3s and 4s because they don't do it two years in a row a lot of the time. That said, from the Brewers end I'd want to make him untouchable (while I'd be demanding him at the top if I'm the Giants or Mets). The compounding issue is they don't have a second top prospect to try and sell them like San Diego or Houston has. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-07-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)Who's your 2019 NL and AL ROY's?
(Some Guy in a Chat Room from This Chat Room)
Keston Hiura and Vlad Jr. (Jarrett Seidler)
2018-06-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Keston Hiura looks like a stud. Can he keep it up? How would you rank him if he sticks at 2B?
(Tommy from NY)
We are assuming he sticks at second base at this point, and he's very high on our midseason list. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-06-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Biggest prospect on the rise in rankings this year?
(Max from Boston)
Based on our sketched out midseason 50 tiers, The Jesus Lizard (mostly because I was a coward and didn't push him hard last offseason), Jo Adell, Keston Hiura, Austin Riley, Lazarito, Griffin Canning (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-07-26 12:00:00 (link to chat)Which prospects in the latest BP top 50 could you see getting moved at the deadline?
(Steve from London)
This is a fun one! So many of the Top 50 guys are on teams that are out of contention, or are so good that they're unlikely to be moved period. I feel like Keston Hiura is the big one, if the Brewers can find a starting pitcher at the deGrom level, but that seems a bit unlikely for me. I guess I'll go with Yordan Alvarez, especially if the Astros think they might upgrade at 1B over the winter. (Bryan Grosnick)
2018-02-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)For NL players, who are the top 5 prospects in terms of OBP skillsets?
(Avon Barksdale from Bmore)
Robles should have a high BA and get hit by enough pitches to boost the OBP, Senzel has that kind of well-rounded profile as well.
Winker and Crawford are both better in OBP leagues than BA. I'll throw Keston Hiura in here too. (Top 101 with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-02-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see Keston Hiura making it to Milwaukee with a full-time job by the start of the 2020 season ?
(Rick from Milwaukee)
Maybe if he misses a year. I suspect he will be up before then. (Top 101 with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-02-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)Dynasty League Draft - which of these top 101 players do you take with first pick? Luis Robert, Keston Hiura, Royce Lewis, Hunter Greene, Mackenzie Gore, Jo Addell
(PKIII from SC)
Oooooh, If you want surety I'd go Hiura, but I'd be sorely temped by Adell or Robert. Less interested in the pitchers. (Top 101 with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-02-28 20:00:00 (link to chat)Brett Sayre ranked Shohei Ohtani, Keston Hiura, Luis Robert, Royce Lewis, and Jo Adell, respectively, as his top 5 new-signees going into 2018. Do you agree with this ranking or do you see something different that really sticks out to you?
(Ron from Texarkana)
I go Ohtani, Robert, Lewis, Hiura and Adell. I think Robert has #1 prospect in baseball upside. (Eddy Almaguer)
2017-09-29 12:00:00 (link to chat)Keston Hiura or Heliot Ramos?
(JR from New Hampshire)
My two personal favorite (not most highly-ranked) guys from the last draft class. Hiura is the better prospect for now, but the Ramos reports have been eye-catching. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-07-25 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is Keston Hiura the #1 2b prospect right now?
(Tony from MKE)
He needs to play 2B before he's the top 2B prospect.
-Emmett (Emmett Rosenbaum & Nathan Graham)
2017-07-25 20:00:00 (link to chat)Purely Fantasy wise - Keston Hiura or Fernando Tatis Jr?
(James from Columbus)
Hmm, that's a tough one. I'll actually lean Hiura, but that's probably due to my skepticism of Tatis' hit tool. Hiura has to play second though, so there's risk there. -Emmett (Emmett Rosenbaum & Nathan Graham)
2017-07-25 20:00:00 (link to chat)Purely Fantasy wise - Keston Hiura or Fernando Tatis Jr?
(James from Columbus)
Sorry, not a fantasy expert and I haven't seen Hiura in person yet but I do know that Fernando Tatis Jr. has plus power and speed.
-Nathan (Emmett Rosenbaum & Nathan Graham)
