BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-01-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)Can Elias Diaz be a major league starting catcher? Will he be given the opp in Pitt over the next few years?
(ColeWhittier from Pasadena)
His defense means he'll get a shot to make the team, and the multi-year commitment to Chris Stewart makes me think that if Francisco Cervelli gets too expensive that Diaz will at least get an opportunity. (Mike Gianella)
2014-08-29 12:00:00 (link to chat)Elias Diaz, anything there resembling a Major league regular?
(Dave from Boston)
The Pirates seem to think there's a chance of that. Diaz has made progress at the plate the past two years, and has a strong defensive reputation. He's even nudged Tony Sanchez to first base lately, so that tells you how the org feels about those two these days. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could I request future eyewitness reports on RHP Luis Diaz and C Elias Diaz?
(Ace from PA)
If any of our teams put eyes on them, then I'm sure they'll write them up. If I see either player enough in the second half to write a report, I know I will. (Mark Anderson)
