Multiple moves (6/27 Edition): Galvis to IL, Wade/Stevie down, Leyba/Urias/McKenna up

I hope the promotions are real guys and not just warm bodies. I really like giving prospects opportunity, and giving non-prospects a day or two on the big team, but eventually you want real guys who can really help you win real games, because losing sucks and losing embarrassingly is worse. I’ve never been to Baltimore, I don’t know anything about the city except it’s troubled, but You would hope for the baseball team to be a source of pride.

Santander wasn’t running well and Glavis has the quad issue. Urias and Leyba were also pulled from the Norfolk line up.

Is multiple more than a flurry?  Axing for a BFF.  Is Leyba "glove or bat first"?

In the minors, he was a bat.

Usually I hate the idea of a guy who’s all bat and no glove, but at the moment the guys we have are NEITHER, So getting half of the package is definitely a step up.

I’m anxious to see Leyba.  If he can hit a little, wouldn’t mind seeing him supplant Franco at 3B when Galvis returns.  

Defensively, Leyba at 3B reminds me of Franco with a below average arm. Not much of a hustler overall, but is a switch hitter who some semblance of what he's doing at the plate.

That is really “damning with faint praise” But regardless isn’t Leyba targeted for 2B?

I'm not sure what this means. How can a 25-year-old who's aspiring to make it to the ML be "[n]ot much of a hustler"? I just don't get it.

I get it that veterans like Franco might not hustle all the time, whether to save their legs or just because they don't feel like it. But a guy on the edge of a roster spot and MLB salary?
