Austin Hays called up

Yes, they sat him in the penultimate game to retain his status.

Or for other reasons such as trying to get everyone some playing time in the final few games. (But I suspect you’re right.)

Didn't they put him in as a defensive replacement late?

I think Elias is hoping Hays boosts up the team's prospect ranking.

I doubt that.    If he wanted to preserve Hays’ rookie status, I think that was just a nice gesture towards Hays.   The state of the team’s prospects are the same regardless of whether Hays is technically a rookie or not, regardless of what some ranking may say.   It’s not going to help the Orioles if their system is ranked, say, 9th instead of 11th because Hays is counted as a “prospect.”    Either way, he is what he is as an asset.

I'll disagree with you. 

I think it is possible that those rankings can be a useful yardstick for Elias and he'd rather they be as high as possible.

He's at 128 AB, the cutoff is 130.

If he wins RoY that would cost the team money.  Better off having him lose eligibility this year.

I think Elias is hoping Hays boosts up the team's prospect ranking.

Think Elias cares about the team's prospect ranking, eh?
