DateQuestionAnswer
2017-03-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Mike Andriese or Chase Whitley for TB 5th starter spot ? Thank you
(Jimmy from Atlanta)
I'd like to see Matt Andriese get the first shot. There's some reason to think he'll be better off as a reliever, because he struggles to go through a lineup multiple times, but it's worth investing another 15-20 starts to find out for sure. (Aaron Gleeman)
2015-05-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)Does Chase Whitley have middle of the rotation upside?
(John from CT)
Not for me. He's pitched two good games so far and did a good job keeping the Jays off balance last night, but his fastball still topped out at 92 mph and his secondary offerings aren't exceptional. Whitley has a thankless job as the extra starter, I expect him to do what he did last year where he was fine as a replacement starter for 4-5 weeks and then falls apart.

I mentioned him briefly in my column today, I prefer Alex Colome in AL-Only leagues: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=26257 (Nick Shlain)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who are few guys you'd be buying/selling right now?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
I guess I don't necessarily keep a list like this lying around, but off the top of my head...

I'm selling: Jesse Chavez, Chase Whitley, Lonnie Chisenhall, Gordon Beckham

I'm buying: Kole Calhoun, Ian Kennedy, Joey Votto, Michael Brantley, Will Smith (J.P. Breen)
