DateQuestionAnswer
2016-12-08 23:00:00 (link to chat)Frankie Montas, Thyago Vieria, Mauricio Rubio. First to a sustained closer role, highest upside?
(Punchoutpappy from First in Flight)
Uh...well I'm sure Mau'd be flattered that you mentioned him in the same breath as those dudes, but I've heard he barely scrapes 70 on a good day and the command sucks, so...I assume you mean Mauricio Cabrera? I'll take Montas comfortably out of that crew, though it's still entirely possible Oakland continues working him as a starter for a while. (Wilson Karaman)
2016-08-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)J.P., I have an embarrassment of riches in my 20-team, 25-man roster 5x5 dynasty league. This was a rebuild year for me, and right now, my SS are Anderson, J.P. Crawford, Swanson, and Rogers. We can only keep 20 from year to year with no penalty, and the league has a penchant for valuing players weirdly (I got offered Mauricio Cabrera for Andrew Benintendi straight up). Do I use my stash to overpay for positions of need in a spread out league like this? Or should I just wait for these beautiful prospect flowers to bloom?
(Tim L from Sonoma Stompers HQ)
The easy cop-out answer is to gauge what kinda interest other owners in your league have in your players. Find which owners like your players more than you do and try to make something work. Waiting for prospects to "bloom" is tricky, especially when you *want* to move them. Aaron Blair was a hot trade piece prior to the season and now probably can't be given away. The same with Luis Severino. Prospects who haven't had a chance to fail yet always bring a higher return than guys who are known quantities. (J.P. Breen)
2015-11-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)You were at the Fall Stars game right? What did you think about 100 mph Ray Black? Thanks!
(Jesse from Ohio)
I was. I got to see a lot of Ray Black. While mooching off scouts guns I got a couple of 101's, second hardest thrower I saw there after Mauricio Cabrera. I didn't see a competent breaking ball and the command is worlds away, but man when you throw that hard and it's not straight you can't help but come away intrigued. (Christopher Crawford)
2014-07-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Have you had a chance to lay eyes on Mauricio Cabrera? What do you think of his odds to remain a starter and what is his ceiling?
(traindoggah from belfast)
I have not been able to check out Mau-Cab yet, so I would look to the prospect crew to learn the specifics. (the nickname will catch on, just give it time) (Doug Thorburn)
2014-04-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Paul, Daniel Winkler and Ben Lively have carried over last years success into this year with incredible early season performances. Are these guys for real and in a dynasty league would you add one or both in place of, Mauricio Cabrera, Jose Martinez or Lewis Thorpe?
(Rup from DC)
I'd prefer them to the three others. I don't know that either is a star, but both are raising their stock (Paul Sporer)
2014-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Name a few of the higher ceiling prospects just outside the top 101.
(Uncle Jessie from Hazzard County)
Just to name a few: Jose Martinez, Francisco Mejia, Edwin Diaz, Jefry Rodriguez, Amed Rosario, Mauricio Cabrera

Catch a theme here? (Jason Parks on the Completed Prospect Rankings)
2014-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Are you familiar with Mauricio Cabrera's mechanics? Reports on his stuff are impressive, but as Professor Parks noted, there are problems with his delivery. How fixable do you think this is?
(Tyrion Lannister from Parts Unknown)
I haven't seen Cabrera pitch yet, so I have to file the report as "N/A" for now. I am looking forward to getting a look at him this year though. I trust the Professor's assessments in the meantime. (Doug Thorburn)
2013-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Your biggest under-the-radar prospect that could sneak into Top 50 status by year-end 2014 is _______?
(Ben from New York)
Arismendy Alcantara isn't really under the radar any more, but he's going to make some jumps (even more than he already has) over the next 12 months. I'm a sucker for Mauricio Cabrera, and I may be a year early pegging him for a leap like that, but he's a guy I'd pick. (Mark Anderson)
2013-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Did you put eyes on Mauricio Cabrera this year? Im assuming Lucas Sims has passed JR Graham (injury of course stunted/halted his year) as top arm in the braves system, but is the same true of Mauricio
(Chop Talk from ATL)
Did not see Mauricio Cabrera this year. I will say this: I'm going to try and make it to Jackson at least once per year. I enjoyed it this year and saw one hell of a series (healthy Graham, Wood, Bethancourt, Walker, Miller, etc.) Probably safe to say Sims has passed Graham. I really hope Graham is going to be fine health-wise overall, because the start I saw in mid-April was the best I saw any pitcher throw all season. (Jason Cole)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)I love how you romanticize some of these prospects. It makes going to the park for a good A ball game even more tantalizing. (Will be heading to watch Myrtle Beach (Rangers) and Wilmington (Royals) here very soon and will likely get to a Hickory Crawdads game or two). What are your thoughts on what a couple of lower profile pitchers Jose Ramirez (NYY) and Mauricio Cabrera (ATL) could be? Can they be top 50 or are they more 3/4 starter or relief type ceilings? Fringily, Chris
(Chris from Wilmington NC)
I like both arms quite a bit. Not sold that Ramirez will be a top 50 type, but Cabrera has a chance to get there. He has some special qualities and could explode in 2013 if the breaking ball takes a step forward. He could have two 70 grade pitches and its all very easy. (Jason Parks)
