DateQuestionAnswer
2015-03-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Tell me about Giovanny Urshela? Solid potential with what kind of upside?
(Matthew from San Diego)
I can. And I will. He's one of the best defensive 3B prospects I've seen in quite some time, and he's got quality bat-to-barrel skills. I think he's a starter, maybe even an above-average one. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-02-04 19:00:00 (link to chat)Any thoughts on Giovanny Urshela? His always been a 60/70 defender, and scouts have finally taken notice, but he showed undeniable improvement with the bat this year. Highest BB% of his career and showed major uptick in power production. If he can be an even average hitter in the majors I would think he would be an incredible asset for the Tribe.
(username49 from Ohio)
Incredible is likely overstating it, but he's gone from a guy who's been under appreciated to a nice prospect. The improvements with the bat are undeniable, but it's really whether or not he's going to make enough consistent hard contact at the big league level. I'd grade him as more of a 60 defender than a 70, but regardless, he and Lindor could be a nice, controllable left side of the infield. (Jordan Gorosh)
