DateQuestionAnswer
2015-03-25 19:00:00 (link to chat)hi Jordan, thanks for chatting. A lot of focus is on the Rangers big three SP prospects, Thompson, Chi Chi, and Jackson, but what about guys like Alec Asher and Jared Eickoff? Do they have a future in a rotation as well? If so, where do they fit?
(Kyled95 from New York)
Of the lower tier of guys, I like Faulker the best. 93-95 with funk from the left side is always fun. (Jordan Gorosh)
2015-02-12 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is Alec Asher a possible rotation mate this year? Does his mound presence comp to a Holland who's makeup seems to have help grown Holland into a great MLB SP
(@MaineSkin from ME)
I wouldn't compare Asher's mound presence to Holland, but rather to Colby Lewis. As of right now, I think Asher starts in AAA. (Kate Morrison)
2013-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Alec Asher: MORP, BORP, Other?
(MonkeyEpoxy from Amarillo)
He was the one Myrtle Beach starting pitcher I missed this season. He had a good season and finished strong though. I think back-of-rotation is probably the safest bet there – like a no. 4 type – shows a plus fastball with decent secondaries and throws strikes. (Jason Cole)
2013-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see Alec Asher as a major league starter?
(TPX2 from Taiwan)
Last answer should say "suspicions" and not "suspicious," obviously. On Asher, I see a major league quality arm with a chance to be a no. 4 starter or so. Big body with a decent delivery. Throws strikes and shows a plus fastball with okay secondaries. (Jason Cole)
