It's Time - Mountcastle

Recommended Posts

No way! Not when the team ERA is well over 6 and Davis still on the roster. Plus, Trumbo is coming at some point...I'd let him dominate AAA...Has anyone really done that at Norfolk yet?

I would argue it is not time. Only 66 AAA ABs with 17 Ks and a .319 OBP. 

There's simply nowhere to play him. Nunez is entrenched in a breakout year at DH, Davis is being given the year at least, and Ruiz/Alberto are doing well at 3B. Not to mention Mancini's All Star season. 

Let Mountcastle percolate until you cannot ignore him anymore. I'm having a pretty easy time ignoring him right now honestly. Which is good! Let these guys develop. Forget about them until July, at least.

Mountcastle is probably a September call up and maybe sooner if some players get traded or injured for the year.

The thread title implies @weams feels differently.

I thought Elias wants these guys to be fully redeveloped at the AAA level... so most likely not until September.

4 home runs looks nice but the 25% k rate does not. 

There's just nowhere to play him on the ML roster.

As much as I want to see some of the young blood called up, keeping Mountcastle in AAA is the right move.
