DateQuestionAnswer
2018-12-06 20:00:00 (link to chat)Jesus Aguilar remains a person of interest for me. Will he repeat his yummy 2018 season?
(Lonely Dove from Hello)
That sure seems like a career year, but the power's always been real. Heck of a waiver claim. (Jarrett Seidler)
2018-07-10 20:00:00 (link to chat)I know player comps are stupid, but who is a good comp for Yordan Alvarez?
(Kevin from Manchester)
I'm not good at comps. At the plate maybe Jesus Aguilar or maybe Jose Abreu with better approach, more Ks? Someone feel free to chime in (Eddy Almaguer)
2017-04-05 23:00:00 (link to chat)Jesus Aguilar - is he just alright or something more?
(CountryHardBall from Field of Dreams)
I feel like this has been an evergreen question for like 4 years now, and yunno what, that's probably all the answer you need right there.

In need of some revolution music, let's hit some Channel One UK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6lp30NVICY (Wilson Karaman)
2014-11-04 18:00:00 (link to chat)What do we have in Jesus Aguilar? 12.8% bb rate / 19% K rate in AAA. 31 doubles, 19 HRs in 427 ABs. 6'3" 250 lbs. Not highly touted but that's a solid year. Could he be a 25 HR guy who maybe has a couple of 30 HR seasons in him or should I put down the pipe?
(TheKernel from Pasadena, CA)
I'm still pretty skeptical of Aguilar's big league future. I've had quite a bit of first hand exposure to him at the minor league level, and I just don't see the bat speed and feel for the barrel playing against MLB pitching. I think he's going to end up as more of a 4A type or maybe a bench bat if he adjusts reasonably well to the highest level. (Mark Anderson)
2014-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jesus Aguilar -- can he be an MLB-regular given the chance?
(natedogg34 from TX)
It's a stretch. He'd be a second division regular that pops a decent amount of home runs but the rest of it is pretty empty. Probably a platoon bat on a good team, but not too many good teams have right-handed, first-base only platoon guys. (Jeff Moore)
2014-05-29 19:30:00 (link to chat)Better shortstop long term, Brad Miller or Jesus Aguilar?
(DCFG from Quadrant 42)
This is very fresh. Aguilar. (Ben Carsley)
2014-05-27 11:30:00 (link to chat)Thanks for answering my questions. I love it. I'm going to go for the hat trick and then stop. Can you give me your thoughts on 3 big boys with big power: Dylan Cozens, Franmil Reyes, and Jesus Aguilar?
(Ben F from ca)
I like Cozens the best out of those 3. Swing is a bit long, and I'm not sure where he plays. That speaks more to the other two guys, really. Reyes looks like he's pretty mature and old already, even though he isn't. Not much projection left. Not a fan of Aguilar at all. AAAA player. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-05-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)Derek Norris is getting more starts against righties. Good call to hold onto him.
(RotoLando from Cloud City)
This is not a question, but I'll allow it. May the Jesus Aguilar be with you. (Bret Sayre)
2014-05-07 17:00:00 (link to chat)Hello Mike: is there a good chance that we'll see Jesus Aguilar playing for the Indians this summer? I see he's hitting well at AAA and doing what the Indians like, taking walks.
(howling wolf from Silver Spring MD)
There's a chance, although it would probably take an injury to make it work for him. I do worry that he'd be exposed in the bigs, but I would agree that if he keeps hitting this way that the issue will be forced at some point this summer. (Mike Gianella)
2014-05-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)What can you tell us about Jesus Aguilar beyond what we can read in his stats? His BABiP indicates he was lucky in the International League, but unlucky up in the A.L. But, where did his power go?
(hotstatrat from Toronto)
I don't know much at all about him, beyond the Quad-A masher label he seems to be stuck with. (Harry Pavlidis)
2014-02-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Jeff. Loved the winter ball reports. I'd like to get a handle on just what kind of hitter is Jesus Aguilar. Does Cleveland have a big time sleeper here or more likely a quad A bat? What a winter!
(mmcd from ottawa)
You and me both. And so would the Indians, I think. The general consensus entering this off-season was that Aguilar had some power but not enough to really stand out at first base and that his hit tool had enough holes in it to prevent him from ever using that power fully. Then he went out and did what he did this off-season and screwed everything up. It's winter ball, so it must be taken with a grain of salt, but man that was impressive. He'll have to show it's for real this season, but it puts him more firmly on our radar than he was on six months ago. He's a guy I want to get reports on this year. (Jeff Moore)
