Bull riding accident. Falling off a stage at a casino. Tractor incident. Weight bench failure. 

Awkward / painful bat flip?

There is no reason to release Davis. We are not close enough to contention that Mountcastle needs to play immediately. Keep playing the long game works for me.

They aren’t going to keep guys in the minors unnecessarily just because we aren’t close to contention.  If that was the case, you might not see Mountcastle out of Triple A until he’s Rule V eligible. 

There is no need to rush it but these guys still need to start getting big league experience, more or less as soon as they are ready.

And I think they are doing that at a decent pace right now. We've seen Mullins, determined he can't hit at this level, sent him back and let him work on it. Stewart and Sisco dominated AAA and are now here. Santander has been average-but-decent at AAA and appropriately has been used as a fill-in guy for injured players. We got a look at Scott, who couldn't hang - again - and now he's back down. Wynns got a shot, couldn't hang, is back down.

So I think they've gotten a good look at a lot of potential guys, and the guys who dominated their league are going to get a lot of rope to figure it out. Mountcastle will be up early next year, probably. Hays should be up in July, I would guess, if he starts dominating AAA (only 18 ABs so far).

Sure, but they can do that without releasing Davis. Trading Mancini could be another possibility to open a spot for Mountcastle. Then again, I would be fine with keeping control of Mountcastle as long as possible.

Eventually you have to bring these players up to the ML level. You can't go into a season where it's supposed to come together and have 5 or more rookies. That would probably be a recipe for disaster.

I think he’ll release Trumbo within a week.

Won't be within the week.  No reason to release him if he's hurt, just keep him on the 60 day IL.  Don't have to make a move unless he's physically able to play.

I see no urgency trading either Mancini or Bundy. They are both young, under control for a few more years and I believe producing positive war for the club and I believe are pretty expensive a matter of fact before shopping them I would look into extending them, now if a team offers the right package bye bye.

I'm not interested in extending them for different reasons.

Mancini has already been discussed and Bundy's medial history worries me greatly.  I would need to see compelling medical evidence in favor of extending Bundy before I'd consider it.

True if he’s still hurt. I know he hasn’t played last couple days but has it been announced that he re aggravated an injury?

Agreed on Bundy. Mancini could be a sell high move.

As far as Mancini I know its not the popular decision I just like the guys bat hits for avg. and has decent power along with his character he’s a good club house guy. I personally don’t think he’s that big of a defensive liability, but i do understand the sentiment of not wanting to keep him but sure as heck wouldn't give him away for peanuts. I’m sure that wouldn't be the case and that we probably would net a decent hall for him.

When on the dl does a player count against the 40 man?

Not if they are on the 60 man.  The others ones do.
