DateQuestionAnswer
2019-07-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Bo Bichette have any immediate fantasy impact? On another note, John Gant has not pitched as well as in the first half, and is not currently getting saves. Do you foresee him moving back into the closer role?
(ironcityguys from urban area)
The real answer is I don't know, because it's hard to gauge which prospects will pop immediately and which will take a bit to acclimate. That said, I'm picking Bichette up wherever I can, and I *think* he's a guy that could be good, or at least good-ish, right away.

As for Gant, I would not anticipate he'll get many more saves this season, at least on purpose. (Mark Barry)
