DateQuestionAnswer
2019-07-19 12:00:00 (link to chat)Luis Robert has obliterated each level he's played at this year. He also has the low BB rates that often signal trouble at the MLB level. Would you expect him to struggle a bit for a year or two before adjusting to the majors?
(Mark T from Annapolis MD)
Is it time for me to give the grumpy KG bit about how everyone cares too much about minor league walk rates? Dude has a 1.050 OPS, swing my son. Also while his walk rate is below-average, it isn't disastrous. That all said, I expect even the best prospects to have a bit of an adjustment period against major league stuff. The Sotos and Acuñas are the exceptions. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-07-22 15:00:00 (link to chat)Any idea when players such as Jasson Dominguez typically get added to player pools on sites such as CBS? Missed out on Luis Robert and don’t want it to happen again. Thank you
(Kkelly from IL)
I have not seen a particularly consistent standard applied, myself. Sometimes this happens when the players actually start accumulating stats with affiliates but on plenty of occasions I've seen relatively well-regarded prospects not get added to systems until seemingly random points. My recommendation would be to introduce a league rule where any guys signed after a certain date - e.g. the draft onwards - aren't eligible to be picked up until your league's draft in the offseason. (Darius Austin)
2019-07-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Luis Robert is posting ridiculous numbers, but do you have any concerns about his plate discipline?
(aj from Lawrence)
Sure, I'd love to see a little bit of a better approach but when you're doing what he's doing to the balls he's hitting...I'm not sure I have a strong issue with being aggressive. I suspect he'll make some necessary adjustments against some higher quality stuff when the time comes. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-07-09 12:00:00 (link to chat)What odds do you give for these prospects to debut THIS season: Jo Adell, Luis Robert, Casey Mize, Dustin May, Bo Bichette, Gavin Lux.
(The Colonel from Pasadena, CA)
Best bets are probably Bichette as a September call up and May as a utility arm for the stretch run/playoffs. I imagine the Tigers are going to be very cautious with Mize after the shoulder issue. Robert and Lux could hypothetically be an injury away at some point though. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-07-08 20:00:00 (link to chat)Chance we see Luis Robert in Chicago before 2019 ends?
(cowhitchurch from Austin)
35 percent? The White Sox have the usual incentives to keep him down, but if he blitzes Triple-A (and with the new baseball he might) they're gonna be under a lot of pressure in a month. (Jarrett Seidler)
2019-05-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are your top 10 dynasty hitting prospects right now?
(Eugene from Monroe)
For guys that haven't debuted yet, I'll say: Wander Franco, Keston Hiura, Kyle Tucker, Jo Adell, Alex Kiriloff, Austin Riley, Taylor Trammell, Brendan Rodgers, Luis Robert and Yordan Alvarez (Mark Barry)
2019-05-06 23:45:00 (link to chat)It's early, but if Luis Robert just keeps hitting like this in Double-A too when does he make it to the majors? It feels odd to gauge a player with his tools and pro experience, but with so few reps in the last couple of years.
(nschaef from NYC)
Why, glad you asked, we just 10 Packed him today! https://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/article/49523/monday-morning-ten-pack-may-6-2019/

I am HERE for Julio Urias against Acuna in a 9th inning Save situation. The future is now. (Wilson Karaman)
2019-05-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)In the fourth year of my longest running dynasty league, where my peak achievement has been third in points three weeks into the season, I'm about to tank again. So I want to ask about my second dynasty league. This week, I traded Blake Snell for Nolan Gorman and Luis Robert. My goal is to compete by 2027. Do you think this trade was good?
(Elton from Pacific Northwest)
Elton, my man, we gotta talk about your timeline here. We're gonna have to make it the BP Fantasy Team's mission to get you competing before 2027. Unfortunately, I think your return was a bit light on Snell -- unless, that is, you're ALL IN on Robert. I think you would've been better off building a trade around a higher-end prospect, or grabbing more guys than just Gorman and Robert. Depending on your situation, quantity may matter. (J.P. Breen)
2019-02-25 16:00:00 (link to chat)I'm a White Sox fan. Was. I don't know anymore. Talk me off the ledge.
(Redacted from Redacted)
I totally get it after the tease of Machado (and I guess Harper to a lesser extent). But your pain is relative. I'm a Giants fan, I would trade my team for yours in 2019. I get to watch 30-something players break down while the roster is spackled with the likes of Cameron Maybin and Yangervis Solarte. But back to the White Sox. There's still hope for Yoan Moncada, eventually you'll have Michael Kopech, maybe Lucas Giolito comes good, and Luis Robert is coming down the pike. And your team doesn't hate BP. (Jon Hegglund)
2018-07-10 20:00:00 (link to chat)In a deep 20 team keep forever league. Is it time to move on from Byron Buxton (have Yelich, Acuna, Soto, Schwarber, Robles, Adell and Luis Robert). Looking to improve my pitching and looking at Dustin May.
(beringstorm from Tacoma, WA)
Sweet outfield! I wouldn't blame you for wanting to move Buxton but I wonder if you can get more. I love May, but Buxton should net you more. Try for guys like Sixto, Paddack, A.Reyes and work your way down. (Eddy Almaguer)
2018-02-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Luis Robert? What does he need to show this year to move up the rankings?
(Brian from Mke)
If he's close to the player in the Sally or Carolina League that he's been touted as, I suspect he will move up quickly. He was another dart throw for us as we discussed in the White Sox list and elsewhere. It's not impossible he's top ten at midseason. (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)
2018-02-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)Can Luis Robert rocket up this year with his hit tool. Robert or Royce Lewis for dynasty leagues?
(Mike from Canada)
I don't actually have a strong take either way here. (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)
2018-01-23 23:00:00 (link to chat)Luis Robert, Royce Lewis or Hiura for dynasty draft - 1st pick???
(Pk3 from SC)
Robert, Hiura, Lewis order for me, I think. They're all pretty close. (Wilson Karaman)
2017-09-18 23:00:00 (link to chat)How big of a jump do you see Luis Robert making in the prospect rankings next year?
(James from NYC)
No idea. He's a really difficult guy to peg right now, because we just simply haven't seen him even up against appropriate competition yet. Once we get some stateside looks and figure out a legit level of competition for him, we'll have a better sense of how advanced he is or isn't. The DSL games he played this summer, while important for getting him some reps and easing him into things, weren't really all that helpful for determining any of those things. (Wilson Karaman)
2017-09-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Beyond what one can see in the stat line, do you have any updates on Luis Robert's time in the DSL?
(edwardarthur from Illinois)
Not much. Should make his way stateside early next year and I'm looking forward to seeing him firsthand in Spring Training 2018. (Collin Whitchurch)
2017-07-31 23:00:00 (link to chat)Who has the better fantasy career Kevin Maitan or Luis Robert? Elaborate please
(Polanski from Ohio )
We got our first eyes on Maitan last weekend, and without spoiling anything that hasn't been written yet, the conversation in our Slack was...whelming. At least in terms of rawness and gap between present and future. The tools are impressive, particularly the fundamentals of the swing. He yanked a hammy today, incidentally.

I'm not sure you can go wrong with either, the ceilings on both are stupid. I'd lean Robert marginally for timeline reasons, but I'm not sure I see a ton of daylight between their present dynasty valuations. They're both figments of your imagination. (Wilson Karaman)
