    Just gonna drop this in here because it assuredly was asked over this and only this thread:



    Koba: Some Reds fans are ready to end it all over the new Hunter Greene writeup. Any thoughts on why they should step back from that ledge, my friend?
    12:49

    Kiley McDaniel: his future pitch grades are 80, 55 and 55 with 60 command


    Or, basically, a #1 starter.
    I don’t understand why they gave him a 50 FV then, when their site says 50 FV = #4 starter
    What would you say.....ya do here?

    I think that Fangraphs typically gives players who are further away from the show, especially if they aren't polished, lower grades due to the enormous amount of volatility in their projections.

    I think the FV is essentially the median value of all potential outcomes, thus as you stated, a guy further away and less polished is going to have a huge range of potential outcomes.

    From today's chat:

    12:14
    Lilith: Who from the Reds system are you most excited to see break out next year who might not be a well known prospect (yet)?

    12:14
    Kiley McDaniel: https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/top-...ncinnati-reds/

    12:16
    Kiley McDaniel: There’s the list. Some higher variance guys to keep an eye on would be the top righties from the last draft class (Josiah Gray moreso than Lyon Richardson), SS Jose Garcia, RF Danny Lantigua, RHP James Marinan, 2B Cash Case

    12:16
    Kiley McDaniel: Mike Siani and Jeter Downs would be guys to watch possibly moving onto a top 100 during the year
