2019-05-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Everyone here is raving about Zach Plesac. Breaking ball is fringy but it's a crossfire delivery with plus command. Thoughts?
(Kenny from Cleveland)
ENOUGH already with this Funke! I mean Plesac. I'm not expecting anything special. No. 5/6 starter maybe. Fits in the mold that Cleveland has with Bieber and Civale of rarely walking anyone. The question for me with that profile is whether they can miss bats and be around the zone that frequently. Bieber has made that adjustment. Not sure if Plesac's stuff works on the same level, personally. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-05-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi JP. 2 questions: Any tips on under the radar SP in the high minors w/2/3 upside? Already have gallen. Second, what are your thoughts on Zach Plesac?
(pats1124 from Durham, NC)
Not to be glib, but I'm not sure there are under-the-radar guys in the upper minors with that kinda upside. The internet community has gotten so much better at this stuff. Maybe a guy like Kyle Muller? Tony Santillan? I still don't think Brusdar Graterol or Ian Anderson get enough love. As far as Zach Plesac is concerned, he's interesting because the velocity ticked up significantly. I'm skeptical of his ability to stick in the rotation because he lacks a true breaking ball, and straight fastball/changeup guys don't have a great recent track record in the big leagues. (J.P. Breen)
