2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)I find Donn Roach to be very interesting. Please share whatever thoughts you have about him, or pass along the thoughts of others'. Thanks.
(Mario66 from Pittsburgh)
Sinkerball profile who relies on plus command to create tons of groundball; classic back-of-the-rotation starter profile. (Zach Mortimer)
2012-05-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Donn Roach has crazy good numbers in the Cal league.. Is he a potential 3-4 starter in the big leagues?
(Zach from CA)
Role is still to be determined, but he looks like a big leaguer. One of the best sinkers around, and we'll see when he develops around it. (Kevin Goldstein)
