Default Patrick Mazeika

Was promoted to AA, playing DH tonight, 2 for 2 so far (both doubles)

Have we given up on him as a potential C considering Nido is still in AA?

No. He doesn't make sense anywhere else. They will likely split time. One will DH while the other one catches

He was always talked about as a "defense first" catcher prospect that was potentially making strides at the plate. Or at least that's what I recall.

Do you think Mazeika will be able to stick at C to the majors?

If you could take Nido or Mazeika, who would you pick?

He'll prob say Nido. I really like Mazeika though, the dudes bat will play so the question def is can he stick at C. Nido still the better prospect though

Is the nido hype based all on defense and/or do people think the bat will develop at some point??
Cause he has 1500 minor league at bats and an OPS under .700.....

Think there was a lot of hope for the bat a year ago after he sported an .816 OPS in the traditionally pitcher-friendly FSL. But that's obviously been subdued by his numbers this year, which have been a regression to what he's generally been as a hitter in the minors, making last year look like perhaps more of an aberration. Still wouldn't throw in the towel on him, but expectations have been tempered.

but also, his value is supposedly his defense.

Sure. But his progress with the stick will probably largely help determine whether his future is as a defensive-minded backup catcher, or a legit option as a starting catcher.

Also, while true on the surface, gotta take a second look

2014 BRK: 6.9% BB, 20.2% K, 95 wRC+
2015 SAV: 3.6% BB, 25.7% K, 83 wRC+
2016 SLC: 5.1% BB, 11.4% K, 138 wRC+
2017 BIN: 7.6% BB, 13.9% K, 80 wRC+

So his plate discipline has improved a bit, as you'd expect, but any way you slice it, going from a .320 BA / .816 OPS in St. Lucie last season to a .238 BA / .664 OPS in Bingy this season takes some of the wind out of his prospect sails. Not throwing in the towel on him yet by any means, but impossible to not temper expectations.

Yeah, I mean... I agree, but at least he's not going back to his strikeout ways. That's good.

April 8 to August 4 - 38 Ks in 314 PAs.

August 5 to end of minor league season: 25 Ks in 90 PAs.

I don't want to draw conclusions on what might have been an adjustment, or a small sample size or even fatigue after a long season, but he did, to some extent, regress to his 25% K rate towards the end of the season.

Had an awful start to the year but went 3 for 4 tonight with a HR and a 2B

He may not be great defensively but in a timeshare I'll take his bat over Lobaton or Nido in a fucking heartbeat
