BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2018-02-28 20:00:00 (link to chat)Does Zach Davies go Kyle Hendricks this year?
(Keith from Channahon)
He's been a popular pick thanks to his excellent command, huh? I don't buy it though. His K% was about 15 last year and Hendricks was up to 22 in his breakouts. Got to get soem outs on your own, especially in that park. (Eddy Almaguer)
2017-03-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)I kind of like Zach Davies as a breakout candidate this year. What say you?
(Buddy from Peoria, IL)
Love that pick, honestly. If we've seen anything over the past few years, it's that pitchers who don't have that classic strikeout power profile sneak under the radar badly, and Davies has done that up until this year. I think the hype he's getting is justified, and if he can tick up his strikeouts while softening his home runs, he'll be effectively the best pitcher on the Brewers. (Trevor Strunk)
2017-01-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of the Brewers Zach Davies? Is he could be somebody who takes the next step and breaks out this year?
(Buddy from Peoria, IL)
Davies is a new favorite of ours, thanks to his incredible command profile and CSAA numbers to back that up. The rub is the defense behind him may not let him pile up the traditional numbers you might be looking for, but he's someone who might be on a good path. (Harry Pavlidis)
2017-02-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Pitching sleepers/breakouts for this year? If possible, geared to points leagues?
(chrispetersen15 from IA)
I'll give you a few deeper late-round mixed options: Garrett Richards, Robert Gsellman, Jharel Cotton and Zach Davies.
As far as "breakouts" go that's a broad term. Starters that I like better than the consensus: Julio Urias, Marcus Stroman, Jon Gray, James Paxton (is so obvious it's painful), and Frankie Liriano. I'm probably forgetting someone...Oh. Draft Rich Hill... (George Bissell)
2016-08-01 16:00:00 (link to chat)In a deep NL-only league, if you had to pick one for next year of the "out of nowhere" Brewer starting pitchers -- would you bet on Junior Guerra or Zach Davies? Thanks, J.B.
(J.B. from Las Vegas)
Guerra has more of a ceiling despite his advanced age. I lean him, but Davies is pretty good too. (Mike Gianella)
2016-04-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see any of the young Brewers waiting for their opportunity in AAA like Michael Reed, Orlando Arcia and Zach Davies making an impact soon?
(Scott from LA)
Reed and Davies might get their shots before Arcia, but Arcia is a much better bet to stick. Reed might get a shot before Brett Phillips, but he's unlikely to perform well enough to prevent Phillips from supplanting him. Nobody in the Brewers' rotation is going to block Davies if he performs well, but he's unlikely to have sustained success in MLB with his stuff. Arcia is coming up at some point this summer, and when he does, he's probably there for good. Even if Villar plays like an All Star, which would be an upset, the Brewers will promote a meeting-expectations Arcia and play him at SS, moving Villar to 2B or 3B and shunting Scooter Gennett or Aaron Hill to the bench or the waiver wire. There's no denying Arcia, barring injury. (Scooter Hotz)
2016-01-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)How about ranking MLB-debuting starting pitchers Jorge Lopez, Tyler Duffey, Cody Anderson, Zach Davies, John Lamb, Colin Rea, Mike Montgomery and Jerad Eickhoff for long-term value in a dynasty sim league, if you please? Are there big tiers or divisions there? Thanks for all your time spent on scouting and chats.
(delatopia from the 415)
Lopez is a clear No. 1 to me. After that I'd go Rea, Davies, Lamb, Eickhoff, Duffey, Anderson, Montgomery. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-11-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Zach Davies a future #3?
(Flow DiMaggio from Clouds)
I don't think Davies is a No.3 in a good rotation, as good as the change is I would want someone a little more durable who misses more bats. A very nice backend starter, but I think that's a stretch. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-07-13 14:30:00 (link to chat)Guys like Tapia and Albies look soooo thin on TV. I realize they are teenagers, but makes them seem farther from The Show. How much do teams put into their diets, weight training, etc?
(RB from My thoughts )
They are certainly thin. Teams are well aware of this when constructing diets/weight training.
I know the Orioles have done the same with Zach Davies, who is also considered thin/wiry.

Some of these players will fill out naturally, but Tapia/Albies' frame is not conducive for muscle or weight gain. I see them as players that will always been wiry for the most part. (Futures Game Chat)
