DateQuestionAnswer
2015-05-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)Is Jake Marisnick just off to a good start or has he actually turned a corner in his offense? The kid is mashing right now and add in the SB's, and he's a pretty valuable fantasy asset. Is he a sell high in dynasties? Will he continue to break out or will he fall off a cliff?
(Mark from Chicago)
Some might just look at his .390 BABIP and assume that his start is a mere fluke, but the amazing thing about Marisnick's start has been how he has cut his strikeout percentage from 28 percent last year to 12 percent this year. With him making so much more contact, the comedown of his BABIP won't been able to drag down his numbers that much because of the sheer volume. If he can continue to make this much contact, he's full on breaking out. Should his offense start to falter, he's still a great source of speed so only sell high if it's really the right price. (Nick Shlain)
2015-05-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)Jake Marisnick is having a great start to the season. Is there a substantial difference in his approach this season? I am wondering if the improved performance at the plate is sustainable even at a lesser level than his start.
(Chad from OKC)
As I mentioned earlier, he's making a lot more contact than he was last year and if that holds his improvement is somewhat sustainable. (Nick Shlain)
2015-02-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Jake Marisnick can hit enough to be better than a 4th OF or defense only CF in the long term?
(Chris from Phoenix)
Wasn't a huge Marisnick fan, but that goes back a couple years since last time I saw him. He looks the part. Runs, throws, fields, power in bp. I thought the swing was stiff and I didn't think he had much feel for squaring pitches up. I think he's closer to second division starter because I just didn't have a whole lot of faith in the bat. (Al Skorupa)
2015-01-20 19:30:00 (link to chat)Is Jake Marisnick a post hype guy to target this year? If he starts, think he is capable of 15/25 with a .260ish AVG in the next couple of seasons?
(Jack from Houston)
God, Marisnick is another kryptonite player for me. Yes, once again I like him as a sleeper, though the Rasmus acquisition hurts his potential path to playing time. I think 12/20 with a .260 AVG is his ceiling if he gets 500 PA next year. (Ben Carsley)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can Jake Marisnick hit .250 in the majors some day? It seems he'd be an incredibly useful player if he could.
(Mike from Worcester)
Ben will tell you Jake Marisnick could hit .250 while balancing a plate on his head, but Ben is a liar. I think he's a 4th outfielder. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-07-31 19:30:00 (link to chat)So this Jake Marisnick fella, you like him at all?
(Kevin G from Minute Maid Park)
I've been a Marisnick sucker for a long time. Top 50 fantasy prospect for me. (Ben Carsley)
2014-06-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Jake Marisnick's call-up? Do you think he will be more successful this go around? Do you see him as a George Springer-lite, contact issues with 20 HR power and maybe 10 SBs?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
No, I've been quite low on Marisnick from the start. The tools are great but I've never seen any pitch recognition from him that makes me believe he won't get carved up by major league pitching. Springer recognizes pitches, he just swings through a lot of them. I don't think Marisnick recognizes them properly. I'm expecting more struggles, but hope to be wrong. (Jeff Moore)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)I have Yelich, Marisnick, AND Ozuna in an inherited 10-team 40-keeper dynasty. How many of them do I keep vs redrafting? I'm not expecting to be competitive in 2014.
(dohogne from Phoenix)
I would keep Christian Yelich and Jake Marisnick. Marcel Ozuna could be a solid regular, but could also be on the outside looking in. The other two are good enough that you should keep them based on the skills/upside and hope for the best given your non-competitive footing. (Mike Gianella)
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who begins the year as the Marlin's starting centerfielder? Who ends the year as the Marlin's starting centerfielder?
(Paul from DC)
I think it could be Marcell Ozuna if he's healthy to start the season, but I think it's Jake Marisnick by season's end. (Craig Goldstein)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which do you think will have the best career? Marcell Ozuna, Jake Marisnick, Michael Choice, Khris Davis? And can you rank the 4 for career? Thanks!
(TheKernel from Pasadena)
I would take Marisnick.

Marisnick, Choice, Ozuna, Davis (Jason Parks)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Jake Marisnick? Future 20/20 Contributor?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
Really like Marisnick, I am one that believes in the hit tool. He provides all the tools, and should be a first division CF. I agree with future 20/20 statement. (Zach Mortimer)
2012-12-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Has Rymer Liriano surpassed Jake Marisnick as a prospect or is Marisnick the better prospect because of his CF defense and speed? Could you see Marisnick developing into a 5+ hitter?
(Gene from LA)
I prefer Liriano to Marisnick because of the bat. I think Liriano's stick has more impact potential and I'm not sold that Marisnick's bat will play 5+ (Jason Parks)
2012-09-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is there a more handsome prospect in the minors than Jake Marisnick?
(Alan from Asia)
Have you seen Wil Myers? (Jason Parks)
2012-04-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Jake Marisnick? He was off to a slow start, but seems to be heating up. Also is Oscar Taveras the best pure hitter in the minors? If not could you give a quick top 5. Love you and the podcast (but mostly you).
(msloftus from NYC)
Thanks. Marisnick struggled to start the year and then made the necessary adjustments to take a step forward. I can't stress this enough: young prospect that can make adjustments are usually the young prospects that eventually become major league players. The ability to make adjustments is paramount to success, regardless of the level. Marisnick has impressed more than a few scouts with his ability to make the small adjustment in order to execute.

Taveras is on any list of the best hitters in the minors. Could be a .300+ hitter at the major league level at maturity. (Jason Parks)
