BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-08-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who will have the most upside and how do you rate these player coming up.Jose Adolis Garcia, Austin Meadows, Renato Nunez,
(OB1 from Tampa)
Meadows, yawning gap, Nunez, yawning gap, Garcia. But I'm not much of a prospect guy, in truth, so please consider that an only lightly educated opinion. (Matthew Trueblood)
2017-09-12 23:00:00 (link to chat)Looking toward 2018, what is the A's optimal use of Matt Olson, Ryon Healy, Khris Davis, and Renato Nunez? Healy, Davis, and Nunez have no defensive value, while Olson plays first base well and right field less well. Olson has trouble hitting lefties, while Nunez and Healy hit them well. Davis is getting expensive, while Healy, Olson, and Nunez are all cheap.
(Tom from San Francisco)
My guess is that it shakes out in largely the same way in has this year. I guess they could try to trade Davis, but I'm not sure what all that profile gets them, and he's not that expensive. Healy is... limited defensively, you're not moving Chapman off third because he's actually good, and so to first it is for Olson. Renato Nunez hasn't shown he can really do stuff at the Major League level. Maybe next spring he shows something that changes the calculus; maybe you platoon first, but I don't think you plan around him. (Megan Rowley)
2017-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Looking toward next season for the A's, they've got a lot of guys who are DHs, or should be DHs. So of Khris Davis, Ryon Healy, Mark Canha, Matt Olson, and Renato Nunez, where would you put everyone?
(Dave from San Francisco)
Ooh, good question, and thanks for asking it in advance so I could look up some stuff. Let's look at age and contracts: Davis (29) arb eligible in 2018, Healy (25) 2020, Canha (28) 2018, Olson (23) 2020, Nunez (22) 2020. Ideally? Keep Davis in left, Healy at DH, Nunez and Olson backing up the corners, in that order, due to Nunez's flexibility. This being the A's, though, it's not hard to see Davis getting traded, which opens up left for, probably, Canha for the rest of this season and Olson for 2018. I don't see Canha sticking with the club. I should add that Beane seems to become more inscrutable every season, so I'll probably be wrong about everything. (Rob Mains)
2017-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)How much does Renato Nunez's winter league explosion raise his hopes of putting it all together? 11HR, 22BB in 168 AB. Still K'd 1 of every 4 AB, but still only 22. What do you think of Nunez?
(The Colonel from Pasadena, CA)
We already know he can hit Double-A pitching? That's the level he's facing or thereabouts. I think he's in the Matt Olson range, good bench bat with some pop, maybe enough there to be a fringe or second-division regular. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-02-03 20:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Kolek and Honeywell? Do you see Trey Mancini and Renato Nunez as future starters?
(Delearyous from Delaware)
I don't like Kolek at all. As required by my contract with the BP fantasy team, I love Honeywell. Yeah, I can see both Mancini and Nunez as second division starters. (Greg Wellemeyer)
2015-09-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)So this year has been pretty terrible for A's fans. Billy Beane dealt the first legit offensive star in Josh Donaldson this team has had since Miguel Tejada, and he got pennies on the dollar (fingers crossed on Franklin Barreto!). Then we saw Jesse Hahn go down with a serious injury and I think he may be sidelined permanently. So give me some good news about the farm. Sean Manaea and Dillon Overton -- thoughts? How about Renato Nunez and Matt Olson? Is Matt Chapman anything other than a Stockton mirage?
(Ted from San Jose)
Still shaking my head at the Donaldson trade. I liked pretty much all the pieces the A's got back... but they aren't guys you trade a star 3B for. Really like Manaea. He's a dude. Going to be perfect middle rotation/3 SP in Oakland. Not sure the fastball command will be there for anything more than that though. Great park for his skill set, too. And man... personality is a perfect fit for the A's. Great get. Overton wasn't throwing very hard last I heard. Have to see where the health is there, but he's got some potential. My reports on the other guys are pretty dated. I wasn't a big fan of Olson. (Al Skorupa)
2014-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who's the A's future 1st baseman? Renato Nunez or Matt Olson?
(Charlie Manson from Corcoran, Cali)
Nunez is the safer bet but is boring and Olson has the higher ceiling. If you're forcing me to pick, I'd take Nunez. (Mike Gianella)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ranking highest upside, bat only... Aaron Judge, Rio Ruiz, Lewis Brinson, Renato Nunez, Dalton Pompey, and Franklin Barreto?
(MP from Kentucky)
Pure upside: Brinson, Judge, Pompey, Ruiz, Barreto, Nunez (Craig Goldstein)
2014-07-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Sup brother bear, is it 8:40 yet? Anywho, any chance Renato Nunez gets some PA's on the futures game over the AS break or should I take my a's colored glasses off?
(Mello Mike from At the quad)
Sup Mello. Oh, he'll get an AB or two. I haven't been able to lay eyes on him this year, but I'll have some #buddies in Minnesota for the game and they should get some reports on him. DVR the game, he'll play. (Chris Rodriguez)
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is Renato Nunez' ceiling? Is the power a byproduct of the Cal League, or is it legit?
(Bryan from Sacramento)
The power is certainly real and has always been his calling card. That doesn't mean the Cal League isn't augmenting it a bit right now, but he has legitimate plus raw. The approach is better this year than last, which has allowed him to drive the ball more consistently. I still don't buy Nunez as a high-average hitter against better arms, but I give him a chance to be a low-average, strong power guy on the infield corners; possibly a solid MLB regular. (Mark Anderson)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is Renato Nunez a legit prospect? He has a 1.488 OPS in his last 10 games. What does his ceiling look like?
(Matt from Oakland)
Legit. Aggressive hitter with plus power potential. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Renato Nunez legit? He has been destroying the Cal League recently. Will he be top 100 by the end of the season?
(Josh from Virginia)
There's legit power in the swing, but the approach isn't pretty. He's also limited defensively. I don't think he'll make the top-100 unless something huge happens from now until the end of the year. (J.P. Breen)
2013-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Matt Olson: .225/.326/.435 with 23 HRs as a 19 year old in the Midwest League. Step forward or back?
(Zack from Boston)
I'd call it a bit of a step back because, when I saw him in the AZL last summer, I thought there was a more advanced feel to hit with decent power. The reports I've heard on how his body developed this year weren't great. He and Renato Nunez both took a slight step back this year with Daniel Robertson impressing and flying slightly under the radar. (Jason Cole)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Clash of the Low A 3B - who ya got: Rio Ruiz or Renato Nunez? Either one look like a future first division player?
(Rob from Alaska)
Good question, I'll take Rio Ruiz because I think he has a better chance of staying at third. From all accounts it does not look like Nunez will be able to stick at third, and he has major violence in his swing. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-06-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat Paul! Can you tell me a little bit about Rosell Herrera and Renato Nunez? I'm looking deep into these guys for my fantasy farm team.
(Ben from Denver)
I'd be 10000% lying if I tried to fake this. I'm not entirely sure you didn't make these names up and somehow create BP profiles for them. Got my eye on you, Ben. (Paul Sporer)
2012-03-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Have you heard anything about Renato Nunez? Signed for 1st round money in 2010, haven't heard his name since.
(JP from Oakland)
He played in the Dominican Summer League last year, and will make his U.S. debut this year. He's also 17 years old and younger than many high school kids who will be drafted in June, so it's not like he hasn't lived up to expectations. (Kevin Goldstein)
