My bad, but a man can dream.

He still could be, I just don't see Elias making a 40 man roster move to promote someone that hasn't played in AAA.

I suspect that that's relatively rare.

The first example that comes to mind is when Dylan Bundy was called up for the stretch-run in September of 2012. That move eventually caused some anxiety for the Orioles' front-office a few years later in 2016, when they were forced to bring him north with the team at the start of the season to avoid losing him through a DFA. Showalter and Duquette were able to improvise with his spot on the 25-man roster, gradually increasing his innings-per-game in each outing until he became a bona-fide starter in mid-to-late July.

Manny Machado was also a 19 year-old who came up directly from the AA-level in 2012, although unlike Bundy, Machado was essentially in the Majors to stay when it happened.

Bundy signed a ML contract when he was drafted.  He was on the 40.

I thought Bundy was already on the 40 because he signed a ML contract.

Oh, thanks. I thought that it was because he was out of options.

He was out of options, but not because they promoted him in at 19.

Diaz isn't on the 40.  I don't think he's going to be added.

May depend in part of how the fishing between now and 8/31 is.

Replace the last two hitters of our lineup with Iglesias and Hays. That's a good lineup

So much for saying that. 😂🤣😅

By my count 5 of these guys are either mediocre in the position they are playing on defense or out of position.... (Alberto, Núñez, Santander,, Sisco, Mountcastle). And they would be no better with Severino at catcher.

Alberto and Santander are not mediocre defensively, although Alberto has had a bad week.

By "baseball ages" I thought you were going to list years of MLB experience. Pretty light for most of those guys, year 1-2 as regulars!

Santander looks shaky in the outfield to me. I’d be willing to be Alberto’s range is below average, I agree that he usually handles balls that he can reach.

Yeah we really turned into an awful team after we lost Iglesias. 

It's more like they were a poor team playing unexpectedly well, and the end of that run seems to have coincided with Iglesias going out.  Unlikely there's much cause-and-effect there.

Santander has been elite defensively in the small sample size thus far this season.

Alberto was above average in outs above average last year, tied for 11th out of 38 in the league among second basemen (when only considering when he played second). He struggled going to his right, but was above average going in, back, and to his left. He was tied for 22nd out of 138 infielders.

    • MLB Pipeline did a Top 10 on their podcast this week, including shreds on I guess NCAA sophomores who like Kjerstad in February/March may have done stuff for a few weeks.  It also acquainted me with the demographics of the basket where 1-5 will be one of them. Pirates 1 - Lawlar the HS shortstop Rangers 2 - Kumar Tigers 3 - McClain, some Madrigal-sized middle infielder from UCLA, maybe/maybe not SS Red Sox 4 - del Castillo, some slugging catcher from "The U" deemed best hitter in draft Orioles 5 - Leiter (I'd be glad with this outcome for polish going towards 2022 usefulness) D'Backs 6 - Jake Hill, the LSU right-hander, non-Vanderbilt best of SEC rest.   Guessing Ben may know him some. Royals 7 - Jud Zabian, Florida OF    <mock now at 6 straight NCAA after the high school SS character who seems impossible to get to 1-5> <hosts say these Top 7 are a clear tier in whatever order they fall> Rockies 8 - Alex Vanellas, Louisville 3B Angels 9 - Marcelo Mayer, high school SS #2 Mets 10 - James Wood, IMG Academy high school OF <nary a high school pitcher in these 10, though with draft pushed back to July, the Nick Bitsko analogs born in 2003 will have some extra time to strut their stuff, in case the next Kerry Wood, Josh Beckett or Dylan Bundy can only Netflix and chill right now>    
    • I would dangle him to anyone whi would take him. I didn't want him back at any cost let alone 1.8M
    • He is so streaky that when he is in his funk he will be worse than the MIF we run out there.
    • https://halohangout.com/2020/07/13/angels-garrett-stallings-summer-camp/ An Angels fansite report when he later got to their 60 this summer cites a curve as the Junior year difference maker. Their source for that this campus story https://247sports.com/college/tennessee/Article/Tennessee-Vols-Baseball-Vols-Garrett-Stallings-selected-in-fifth-round-of-MLB-Draft-132589216/ also has the details he was their 2019 Friday night guy even with Crochet on the team. His Perfect Game blurb from high school times mentioned three-quarters to over the top arm angle, gee whiz. Who knows if he could have had Kevin Smith's 2019 in parallel universe 2020?   SEC trade imports links them, but Smith actually doing it including a little AA success is a big credit in his favor for the moment.
    • He fits the Smith/Kjerstad mold of SEC guys steadily improving (Growth Mindset?), even if some of that is demonstrated in small sample sizes.   Smith did backup his Junior Year rise up draft boards with his great 2019 for the Mets.  I am imagining entering Junior year Stallings was not a 5th or 25th round profile.   He's one more piece for the box of chocolates we'll get to open in the spring.
    • I wonder if he had a velocity spike his junior year and if that would make it less likely for him to have untapped velocity?
