2019-05-06 23:45:00 (link to chat)Are there certain prospect profiles you are just a sucker for and continue to go after? This leads to a more specific question on OF prospects: Drew Waters, Khalil Lee, Jordyn Adams & Calvin Mitchell. What order would you rank them and why?
(David from Atlantis)
Fat guys, hulking unathletic types in general, left-handers with changeups, sick-gloved undersized middle infielders, pitchers with limited stuff but organic mound moxie because they grew up around high-level baseball from an early age, insane quick-twitch athletes who destroy everything in their paths, guys who pitch-backwards the first time through then burn everyone with heaters for the next 4 innings, really fast guys with sprinter frames, whatever Enrique Hernandez is, and funky-delivery relievers who'll never make it out of A ball. Waters/Adams/Mitchell/Lee (Wilson Karaman)
2019-05-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is Calvin Mitchell and Lolo Sanchez's upside? They seem to be having good years.
(Tom from Des Moines)
Mitchell I like as a second-division regular with a chance to be a touch more than that. With Sanchez it really comes down to whether you think he's a CF. If you do, I think you can get to like, the good Mallex Smith season, perhaps? (Craig Goldstein)
2019-05-01 12:00:00 (link to chat)Is Calvin Mitchell a guy who would make it into back end of a top 100 this year?
(Nils from NY)
He made ours last year and has kept hitting so sure. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-01-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)How high up this list can Calvin Mitchell move? Nice to see him sneak in the back end.
(Frank from Ny)
I don't see him as a huge breakout guy, since we might be a year early and it's a right field profile in the end. More of a year-over-year progressor if that bat continues to play. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-06-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Calvin Mitchell? Any chance for top 100 over the next year or so?
(Chris from CA)
I got a brief look at him, nothing much beyond "okay, I get it." Jarrett Seidler got a longer look and came away impressed. He's the type of profile we tend to like, and yeah he's probably a 101 candidate if nothing else this offseason. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-05-25 12:15:00 (link to chat)Who are your favorite non top 101 prospects so far this season? Arm and a Bat?
(chansen8895 from San Jose)
I've loved what I've heard on Paddack as an arm (he's kinda re-emerging more than pop up, but still) and I've been into Calvin Mitchell on the bat side. (Craig Goldstein)
