DateQuestionAnswer
2017-11-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could you rank these 4 and give any insight into their future: Sean Newcomb, Erick Fedde, Max Fried, Anthony Banda.
(Cole Whittier from Pasadena, CA)
I think you probably have the right order (I am ride or die with Newcomb). Could make a case for Fried over Fedde and I think that's the tightest tier here. Fedde and Fried more likely to be relievers than Banda, but the stuff is just better. I still think Newcomb can be a no. 3 (and yeah I know what I just said about Stephenson) (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-06-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)I kinda like what Anthony Banda has been doing. The ERA/DRA are not good, but he pitches in a place where the laws of gravity don't exist. Your thoughts?
(Punchoutpappy from First in Flight)
Yeah, I wouldn't worry too much about Reno stats. Everything's still pointing towards a mid-rotation upside. Heck, we ranked him first in the system last offseason. (Jarrett Seidler)
2016-09-12 23:00:00 (link to chat)Anthony Banda's emergence seems to be slightly overlooked, maybe because his AAA line at Reno wouldn't be that interesting nearly anywhere else. Think the D-backs plug him in the rotation by mid-2017, and could he be more than a back-end SP/swingman?
(Oliver from Boston)
I don't have the best track record with Banda, as my two looks include one of his worst starts in the Cal and a 1-inning stint at the Future's Game this year. But I will say that his delivery was much smoother this year than it had been last year, and while my velo readings are grain-of-salt in the short stint this year, his jump up to 93-95 from 88-91 at Visalia was both notable and in line with reports I got from his starts this year. He's got a good hard curveball, but I don't love the changeup. Might be a guy that benefits from a cutter or something else to keep the pressure down against righties and take that step forward beyond a back-end guy, yeah. (Wilson Karaman)
2016-06-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Arizona pitcher Anthony Banda has been on a tear lately, recently going 8 strong innings with 9ks and only 2 hits. I heard that his velocity has ticked up to mid 90s. Any truth to the velo jump, and if so, how intriguing is he as a pitching prospect? #3? Long-shot #2?
(fawkesmulder from Zzyzx)
I've seen others mention the velo jump, but don't have any firsthand knowledge of that. The questions I've heard raised are about Banda coming up with a third pitch. If that happens, I think there's a no. 3 ceiling there. (Daniel Rathman)
