He's been tearing it up this year and he was promoted to AAA Columbus yesterday. If the Yankees don't make a deal for a CF by tomorrow, he'll probably see playing time sometime in mid-late August.
Not trying to rain on your parade or anything, but being 25 in AA doesn't usually
scream everyday major league player. Servicable platoon optoin maybe, but not much more. I guess he is
a better option than what they've got now because he's so much young er than Williams/Womack and has a little more upside than Crosby. BTW, outside of his nice year this year, he's not really been that great of a prospect.

I know that there are some guys who make it to the show and "figure it out" but given his history and the situation/pressure he's coming into, I wouldn't be getting my hopes up thinking he's going to come in and be a savior of some sort.
