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.

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.

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.
