A little surprising considering how recently he came back from injury and how he isn't dominating since his return. I would have figured they would have waited till around July 1st.

Well, June 23 is only 7 days before July 1. So, they kind of did.

This is honestly not too surprising that he would be brought up right after the All-Star break and what I've hearing for awhile now. Sure he hasn't been dominating with the bat like he did before the injury, but I think he's still getting his feet wet again facing more talented pitching than what was being thrown at him during extended spring. I'll get a good look at him here this weekend when he and Bryce square off in round two.

I wasn't saying I was shocked or that I thought it was a bad move, I was just a bit surprised that the layoff did not push the advancement plans back a couple weeks.

Is there any indication that this is more than speculation at this point? Connolly writes that Machado is expected to be promoted but doesn't say why he's expecting it.

The reason why I would imagine that it's right after the All-Star break. I think the Orioles A) want to reward Manny for the work he did before the injury occured and B) because Delmarva is hosting the All-Star game and having 1,2,3 overall from the 2009 draft makes it an even bigger draw than it already is.

I wasn't signaling you out and I apologize if you feel that way. I think there's a good percentage who expected the latter part of your comment about pushing the track back a few more weeks into July before sending him to Frederick. I think that this goes to show you (possibly) another example of John Stockstill's aggressive nature in promoting players, when/if this even goes down since it has not been official yet.

I agree that it makes sense, but many people thought before the season started that he would be promoted right after the all-star break. To me, this article just seems like it's more of that speculation.

No worries, I am pretty hard to offend.
