2019  Due to publishing agreements, the 2019 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2019 book (available in hardcopy, and soon e-book and Kindle).
2018 Though his season's start was unduly delayed by a bum shoulder, Stewart was able to quickly pitch himself back into the anticipated fray once healthy, rejoining the big-league club after rehab work in June. A reasonably successful campaign swinging between the rotation and the middle innings followed, albeit one checkered by uncharacteristic nibbling and wildness at times. The son of a scout, Stewart has high baseball IQ that shines through in the form of clean, repeatable mechanics and strong pitchability. The stuff ain't bad either, with a mid-90s heater, hard slider and solid change. He may struggle to crack the rotation for a sustained stretch given the Dodgers' depth, but he'd be well-suited for the opportunity on the merits of his true talent.
2017 It could be hard to reconcile Stewart's minor league performance with his major league stats. Then again, it could be hard to remember who Stewart is. The first player from the Dodgers' 2014 draft class to reach the majors, he pitched at three minor league levels in 2016 and didn't record an ERA over 2.49 at any stop, including stints of more than 50 innings at Double- and Triple-A. So how does that guy end up with a 5.79 ERA in the majors? Perhaps it's as simple as "the minors aren't the majors" and "his stuff just doesn't fool MLB hitters". Then again, 14 of his 18 earned runs allowed came in three isolated innings over his first two starts, so it's clear his stuff works just fine much of the time. He lacks the pedigree and the arsenal to be more than a back-end starter, but should see plenty of time as a spot starter/mop-up man in his career.

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-03-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of this Kevin Garnett-esqu trade in a 30 team dynasty league: Andrew Benintendi for German Marquez, Jacob Nix, Brock Stewart, Chance Adams, Taylor Trammell, Luis Urias, TJ Friedl, and Ricardo Cespedes?
(Bob from Georgia)
I have no idea whether this is a good trade or not. It depends too much on too many things I don't know. I don't play dynasty leagues. Best guess: if you're willing to trade present for future, I really like the idea and several of these names. Go for it. (Matthew Trueblood)
2017-02-14 12:00:00 (link to chat)Were Brock Stewart and Brandon Woodruff considered at all? Both pitched extremely well in 2016, so I'm curious about their outlook.
(Chipshot212 from MA)
Performance over stuff guys. Both should pitch in the majors and may even have long careers at the backend of rotations, but not enough upside to get much list chat. I will say I think we were probably too low on Woodruff w/r/t the Brewers list in hindsight. (The Top 101 Prospect Chat with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-02-06 23:00:00 (link to chat)If you had to pick one prospect who is not likely to be in anyone's top 100 prospect rankings to have in a dynasty league who would it be? My vote is for Adam Engel
(Bob from Boston)
Aaaaaand we're back! Apologies or the power outage there. This is the most well-attended chat ever in the world, period, and the 1.5 million people attending this chat proved too many for our server. Back to business:

Yeah, Engel's a good pick, I just had to cut him off a deep 20-team roster and I was not happy about it. I like Brock Stewart as a back-end starter nobody gives two handshakes about, but who has developed really nasty stuff to go long with a coach's/scout's son's understanding of the game. I think he can make some noise if and when he gets a chance to.

Back to Marley love songs, too. This is the one I sing to my kids when they're going to bed, it is acoustic and beautiful and on-the-fly and utterly perfect: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEUsMFvU7kY (Wilson Karaman)
2016-06-20 16:00:00 (link to chat)Brock Stewart is doing very well for the Dodgers. Obviously older than competition, but is there any shot for him being an MLB level pitcher?
(fawkesmulder from Zzyzx)
He certainly has been impressive no? Phoned in a friend again. Kind of a kitchen sink guy, L 3/4 slot with a 93-94 FB, a cutter, slider, changeup, sinker. Nothing grades out highly but he is competitive and throws strikes so he has a chance based on that. (Steve Givarz)
