DateQuestionAnswer
2017-07-31 23:00:00 (link to chat)Where will two former #1 prospects rank at their positions heading into the 2018 draft: Yoan Moncada and Andrew Benitendi. Love their long term prospects, but how much should we temper expectations for next season?
(matzabal from CO)
Moncada'll be a tricky eval for redraft leagues heading into next season regardless of how his playing time shakes out this year. I'd watch intently to see how his K and contact rates trend over what will presumably be at least semi-regular big-league playing time over the next couple months. Look for signs of adjustment, and if he shows 'em I'd start to get excited. Worst-case to me seems something like Keon Broxton at second base and with much longer rope next year, and that's an awfully exciting worst case, yunno?

Benintendi...if we could get Farrell to, yunno, give the kid a dang chance and build some reps up against lefties I'd be all-in. I'm almost there already, as even with the nominal platoon and some sophomore adjustments he's still basically a top-100 hitter. He's a 7 hit, 55 power, 55 speed guy in a solid lineup context far as I'm concerned, and that's a fantasy superstar, is what that is. Unless I see something change dramatically down the stretch, I'll be planning to buy aggressively as an OF2 with OF1 upside. (Wilson Karaman)
2017-05-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Keon Broxton has been great this past month after a terrible start to the season. What do you expect the rest of the way?
(James from Springfield)
Let me see. I'm going to say the rest of the season Broxton hits .260/.330/.415. He ends the season with 30-35 steals and 15ish HR. (Eric Roseberry)
2017-02-13 20:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of numbers can we expect from Keon Broxton this season? A real breakout or just a tease? Is he keepable over Michael Conforto who the Mets keep jerking around and may start the year in the minors?
(The Banker from Philippines (temporary))
I think Broxton is a little bit scary as a proposition due to his contact and strikeout rate, which make him an average risk. That said, I like him a lot more than I like Conforto for 2017 because, as you noted, Broxton is going to play and Conforto probably won't unless the Mets experience multiple catastrophic injuries in the outfield. (Scooter Hotz)
2016-08-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)With all these top CF prospects how do you see Broxton fitting in longer term?
(Jspitz from Sherman Oaks)
Keon Broxton deserves to get everyday at-bats, as the team needs to determine whether they have a potential long-term starter. Lewis Brinson is the long-term solution. Brett Phillips still has a big-league future, too, which means the Brewers are amassing depth and will eventually be able to deal from that depth to improve their squad elsewhere. (J.P. Breen)
2016-08-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think Keon Broxton's future is like?
(Nolan from Midwest)
Somewhere in the middle of what he's done in the past couple of weeks and what he did in his earlier call-ups. He demolishes lefties, so perhaps his most probable future is a platoon fourth outfielder of sorts. Just for context, he's hitting .255/.426/.383 against southpaws in the majors this year, and there's more power in the tank. Strikeouts will remain a huge issue, though. Plus, he has a .545 BABIP in the second half. (J.P. Breen)
