DateQuestionAnswer
2020-03-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Let’s say there is no season this year. Do you think a particular type of prospect (or a specific current prospect) is hurt the worst by the lost year of development? Or does everyone simultaneously being on the shelf mean that everyone is hurt equally?
(BurleighGrimes from Philly)
Anyone coming off an injury layoff, especially post-TJ pitchers, but also even someone like Jordan Groshans. I think it's rough all over though. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2020-02-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)In an Ottoneu-style points dynasty league, Jordan Groshans is a top ___ prospect by July 2020? He's a top ___ prospect by this time next year?
(Kyle from Delaware)
Top-30 by July 2020 due to graduations and, hopefully, his performance. Top-20 by February 2021 due to more graduations and, again, his performance. I do not see him cracking the top-15 this year absent a shockingly good season. (Jesse Roche)
2020-02-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jesse, how do you value Glasnow this year? I inherited him in a dynasty league and have gotten a lot of trade offers. I'm worried about his injury risk but bullish on his potential.
(esix.snead from NY)
Glasnow is a divisive player. Some LOVE him. Some HATE him. I fall in the middle. He ranks 75th overall for us. He is basically a 2-pitch arm with tons of injury, command, and relief risk. Those two pitches are incredible, and play up due to his uncommmon size (6-foot-8). Glasnow is also apparently working on adding a splitter to his arsenal to replace his little used change-up. I think he can be elite if healthy and if his command is on, I just am not sure he is a pitcher built to last beyond 5-inning stints long-term.

For trade context, in TDGX, the following trade occurred 3 weeks ago: Tyler Glasnow, Tommy Edman, and Edwin Rios for FYPD Pick 1.3, Nolan Jones, Jordan Groshans, and Francisco Alvarez. (Jesse Roche)
2020-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Welcome Jesse! Have you made any drastic updates to your personal top 200 prospects from TDG? (ie. How much MORE do you love Jordan Groshans now?)
(Matt from IL)
Thanks, Matt! There are significant updates to the top-200, which can be found via the Top-600 on TDG (access through donation). Since then, the rankings have evolved to a point to represent something closer to a consensus between me and Bret Sayre. We will be rolling out our Top-500 dynasty rankings and Top-250 prospects soon so stay tuned! As for Groshans, he now slots in the top-50. Where? You will see next week when the fantasy 101 is revealed! (Jesse Roche)
2019-11-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)All Jordan all the time! I know everyone hates giving comps but...who would you comp Jordan Groshans to? Do you see him reaching AA next season?
(32JuanJuan23 from OvO)
I do hate giving comps. I could see something around 2019 Corey Seager or so. I'd assume give the extended absence they will take it fairly slowly with him, maybe a bit of time back in the MWL and the bulk of the season in Dunedin. That would still allow him to start in Double-A in 2021 as a 21-year-old. Not impossible he hits the ground running and makes it there by late Summer though. (Toronto Blue Jays Top 10 Chat)
2019-07-09 12:00:00 (link to chat)Jordan Groshans has generated plenty of buzz, yet he hasn't played all that much pro ball thus far. Is he really the whole package in terms of tools + polish at the plate?
(Hefty Pastrami from Atlanta)
Nathan sure thought so.

2019-07-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm rebuilding in one of my dynasty leagues. Actually, I'm rebuilding in all of them, but my question is just about one. Anyway... this week I traded Chris Sale and Justin Verlander for Drew Waters, Jordan Groshans, and Dustin May. How did I do?
(Aaron from Minnesota)
So here's the other end. Maybe it was two deals for Aaron that encompassed all these guys? I don't love it, Aaron. In fact, I checked to see if this was Aaron Gleeman just in case I had to be nice about it. It sucks. It's not good. Those three names for Sale alone...I can see. But then you just have Verlander for nothing. And I love May and Waters. Not good, Aaron. Not good. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-05-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Would you drop Luis Garcia (WAS) for any of: Grayson Rodriguez, Abraham Toro, Logan Allen, Brady Singer, Jackson Kower, or Jordan Groshans?
(Alex from Austin)
It's important to remember that Garcia is a 19-year-old in Double-A. He should be allowed to struggle for a bit. I wouldn't drop him for any of those players that you mentioned. Groshans would be the one to watch, though. (J.P. Breen)
2019-04-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Jordan Groshans?
(Chris from TX)
He's rising up boards, impressive early play. Lotta people liked him right out of the draft though, so it's less of a shift in opinion than him confirming what people thought thus far (Craig Goldstein)
2019-03-04 16:00:00 (link to chat)Bret did a great ranking of the new player pool additions (INT/Draft for dynasty). Anything you would personally highlight as my draft is being conducted right now?
(Matt from MD)
Brett does a great job. We all have guys we like more or less than everyone else. I think that Jordan Groshans and Nico Hoerner are both going to be top 5-10 guys from this class when we look back. (Scott Delp)
