Could Elias Keep Mountcastle Down All Year?

Mountcastle not being up has very little if anything to do with service time.  They just don't think he's all that great and before they give him a chance they want to see what happens with Stewart, Nunez, Rios, etc.

Right....they want to see what Dwight Smith JR has to offer....

I don't feel the need to see much more of DJ Stewart, quite frankly.  I'm not a Mountcastle believer but if I had to pick between the two, I'd rather see Mountcastle.  

That said, I don't think Mountcastle comes up anytime soon.

If anything Stewart might become a backup OF but not an eveyday player.  I am ready for Mountcastle.

I wanted to see Stewart get a lot of ABs this year and I'm not changing that stance over 12 ABs to start the season.  To me, he looks like he is having good at bats.  Let's get him as much time as we can this year and try and figure out what we have.

(Mountcastle)'ll be a 30 year old right handed bat first guy.

So very few of them are valuable that it isn't worth playing games for.

Call the kid up, let him get a decent paycheck and health insurance.  Maybe get a chance at a decent FA deal down the road.

And if he is worth paying Arb4 prices a year early, then so be it.

They could also try locking him up early.

I respectfully disagree. I think he is having horrible at bats. Missing a TON of center cut fastballs and not seeing many pitches. Opposite of Hays who was having tremendous at bats with no hits early. Last few he’s lost confidence.... but Stewart just looks lost. And this is from a huge Stewart fan.

This. If they think Mountcastle is worth playing service time games with, rather they just sign him to an extension early

I think everyone is except the actual team at this point.
