DateQuestionAnswer
2014-11-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Was Rowan Wick in the conversation for the Cardinals prospect list? Seems to be a legit power prospect.
(Toggle switch from Rhode Island)
There's juice, but also big time swing and miss and a limited defensive profile. (NL Central Top 10s With Nick Faleris)
2014-07-22 15:00:00 (link to chat)Which one player from a lower affiliation do you hope to see promoted into the Midwest league by the end of the year? Who would you like to get some eyes on, if possible?
(Steve from Philly)
Rowan Wick. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Very curious about Rowan Wick. Is the power for real, or is this just a case of an early season hot streak?
(Scott from CT)
I'm looking forward to seeing Wick this summer in the NYPL -- assuming he sticks around long enough for that to happen. His raw power is certainly real and he's found a way to tap into it during the first couple weeks of this season, but the couple of scouts I have spoken to so far this summer still question whether the hit tool will ultimately play to such a level that he can find this type of power consistently. Like I said, I'm curious to lay eyes on him and formulate my own opinion. (Mark Anderson)
