BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-06-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)How much should we read into Jarrod Parker's struggles? The velocity is there, but the command/control would seem to be way off. Still ace potential for you?
(TannerDerks from Valpo)
I never saw ace. I think he will become a solid #2 type, but there aren't many aces in baseball. I wouldn't worry about the command/control issue yet. Takes time to harness the stuff after returning from an injury. (Jason Parks)
2010-11-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)You still a believer in Jarrod Parker. Is a mid-season call-up still reasonable?
(Trevor27 from Phoenix)
I think that's pushing it. I still believe, but let's just get him throwing again for now. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-01-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Did Jarrod Parker make your top 50?
(Shae31 from Phoenix)
JUST missed. I mean literally JUST missed, by like as close as one can miss by. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-10-09 13:30:00 (link to chat)What's the latest on Jarrod Parker? Will he be knocked out of 5 star status due to the health concerns?
(Cale27 from Phoenix)
On a throwing program, and so far, so good. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will, what can you tell us about Jarrod Parker's elbow?
(jlewando from DC)
UCL strain, but no TJ yet. I havent seen where he's throwing again, but I honestly dont watch the minors that closely. There's been some concern about how he's dealing with the injury and not playing. (Will Carroll)
2009-06-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give any insight on the injury to Jarrod Parker? x-rays were negative, but what kind of impact can this have on a pitcher?
(Raul from San Antonio)
In a really wacky game (http://www.al.com/baybears/mobileregister/index.ssf?/base/sports/124497100871650.xml&coll=3), Parker was hit on the wrist. They smartly put him on the DL (7-day) and brought up Chase Christianson, who's an interesting story though I'm not sure what the scouting reports say on him. Hell of a HS pitcher though. I don't think Parker will have any long term issues. (Will Carroll)
2008-08-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are you disappointed in Jarrod Parker's performance this year? His overall numbers don't look that bad.
(Darryl Humber from Toronto)
The stuff is phenomenal. The polish is far from that. So I'm am a little dissapointed in the difference between what he is and what he can be. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-05-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Kevin, Where would Tim Melville rank among high school hurlers in the 2007 draft. Is he a Jarrod Parker or more of a Tim Alderson? Also, do you think he might be falling victim to scouts seeing him too much and thus starting to nitpick?
(Bret from Moscow, ID)
I really am a spear-carrier, aren't I? I have no identity at all. I live in the Big Goldstein's shadow like some kind of insignificant fungus. It's an honor just to dwell in his wake, I admit, but why doesn't anyone love ME? Doesn't the 80s book count for anything? No? (Steven Goldman)
2008-04-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)Love your work, Kevin. What can we ideally expect to see from the D-backs' Jarrod Parker in 2008?
(Jeff from DC)
He's a teenage arm, so there's no huge expectatoins. He's going to join Low A South Bend a week or two late and really all you want is 100+ innings, health, and positive development. Numbers are almost irrelevant. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-03-26 12:00:00 (link to chat)I am eagerly anticipating the debut of Jarrod Parker this year. Do you think he can fly through the minors like say, Kershaw or Bailey?
(Phil from Chicago)
Well both Kershaw and Bailey spent most of their first season in the Midwest League, and that's what I expect out of Parker -- maybe a similar schedule to Brett Anderson's a year ago. Parker will be in South Bend, so he won't be too far from home, and I think that comfort will allow him to be one of the league's most dynamic players. He's a fantastic talent, and I'm looking to see him, too. (Bryan Smith)
2008-03-26 12:00:00 (link to chat)What types of players will the Dbacks have available to them when they pick at the draft? Any chance they gift an early Xmas gift like Jarrod Parker again?
(Jon from LA)
Well I don't think they'll land a top 6 or so talent like Parker at 26, no. I think Lance Lynn is a potential choice, I think Arizona fans should cross their fingers and hope for Weeks. A pitcher like Brett DeVall from the high school ranks is pretty good, too. But I'm going to say Buster Posey as the perfect fit. (Bryan Smith)
