BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-11-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any of these infielders going to be a long-term asset? Alex Guerrero, Jace Peterson, Enrique Hernandez, Christian Colon, Luis Sardinas?
(Steve Sax from Los Angeles)
Thanks for getting us started, Steve. I think Sardinas has the best chance of the group to be an asset from the standpoint of emerging as a major-league regular. (Daniel Rathman)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)What is Luis Sardinas ceiling right now, and would he be better off getting full playing time in AA right now?
(Jon from TX)
He would, but getting a taste of the majors won't kill him--developmentally speaking. Its good to see what it is you are working so hard for. (Jason Parks)
2014-04-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jeff, Thanks for the chat. Two questions. First, who's getting called up next? Second, who are we not talking about that we should be?
(Number27 from Milwaukee, WI)
I was as surprised as anybody that George Springer got called up when he did, though I'd guess it means that they're closer to a contract extension than either side is letting on. I just don't see the Astros giving up the service time like that for the sake of about one win between now and June in what will be another losing season. I'm thrilled he's up, but it doesn't make much sense.

Because of that, I have no idea who's next. Some of the most obvious candidates Javy Baez, Byron Buxton, Taijuan Walker, and Addison Russell for example, have battled injuries. There are some more obvious candidates like Marcus Stroman, Andrew Heaney, Gregory Polanco and others, but I'll bet most teams wait until the super-two deadline has safely passed.

Then again, who saw a Luis Sardinas promotion happening over the weekend? So who knows. (Jeff Moore)
2014-04-04 12:00:00 (link to chat)Luis Sardinas' strength is in the field. However at 6'-1" and 150# is there room for weight and as a result some power? Something to get him above a slap hitter. Is this true or is the thought process that he should stay slim to keep range and mobility in the field?
(Clark from Kansas City)
he's young so he'll add weight (trust me). But he can make it with his speed and glove alone. I wouldn't mess with the existing tools to improve another, let him take his natural development course and then trade him to a team that can use him. Or teach him to play multiple positions, further mitigating any bat weaknesses. (Harry Pavlidis)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Luis Sardinas often seems to be overlooked because of Odor and the higher ceiling guys in the Rangers system. Do you think his hit tool and defense are good enough to make him a first division player?
(Ron from Boston)
If the hit tool maxes out then yes, he has a chance to play at a first division level. If that comes up a little short, the rest of the package isn't enough to carry him to that kind of ceiling. (Mark Anderson)
2013-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Austin Hedges worth driving 3+ hours to see in San Antonio because he DH'd the last day of the Frisco series?
(K. from Frisco)
He'll likely be back in San Antonio to open the 2014 season, so if you don't mind waiting awhile, you don't need to make that drive. But I'll be down in San Antonio for the Frisco series next week. Austin Hedges, Matt Wisler, Rougned Odor, Luis Sardinas, Luke Jackson, and more. That's a fun series. (Jason Cole)
2013-07-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Long term: Luis Sardinas or Raul Mondesi, Jr.?
(hotstatrat from "working" from home)
Mondesi. (Jason Parks)
2013-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)How good can Luis Sardinas be? He seems to be overshadowed at SS playing in an organization with Andrus and Profar?
(ThunderAce41 from OKC)
I think he has better defensive tools than Profar, but obviously not on the same level as a prospect. Switch hitting contact type with easy plus speed and a very good defensive profile at a premium spot. Health has been his biggest issue. (Jason Parks on the Midseason Top 50 Prospects)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Luis Sardinas? Do you see him as a guy who could climb the top lists this year?
(Brandon from Toronto)
Prospect lists, he could climb a good bit. Fantasy prospect lists, not so much. He might just be a speed-only guy without elite speed. (Bret Sayre)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)What is the future for Luis Sardinas?
(TPX2 from Taiwan)
Starting shortstop at the major league level. He's highly skilled. Needs to stay healthy. (Jason Parks)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)How do you feel about the Andrus extension affecting the future for Luis Sardinas?
(TPX2 from Taiwan)
Sardinas was unlikely to be the starting shortstop for the Rangers, with both Elvis and Profar ahead of him in the queue. I don't think it changes his future. I've always seen him as a very good trade chip to have, especially if he develops into something realistic. (Jason Parks)
2013-02-25 11:00:00 (link to chat)Dorssys Paulino, Adalberto Mondesi, and Luis Sardinas. Who rises the most over the next year and who has the highest offensive ceiling?
(kojomoe from oakland)
Mondesi and Sardinas as legit SS prospects; Paulino is most likely a 2B in the end. Paulino has a nice bat; good contact and pop; Mondesi doesn't have a big power ceiling, but can drive the ball and will hit for average; Sardinas is a line-drive type that could hit .300 because of his 7 run. I like Mondesi as the all-around prospect. (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
