Historically, pitchers are tougher to predict and ones that have a significant injury history tend to get injured again. Just saying.

As far as the arbitration clock, it does not matter if he is called up now or in September, he still will not have a full year in the league for the arbitration years come the end of the year. In a situation like Tampa where they called up Upton a few years ago for 2 months, then they have to wait til mid June or July to make sure Upton does not have over a years service in the majors at the end of this year.

Just found this in the KC Star:


Yet, Baird is adamant in resisting calls — including an increasing number from within his own organization — to summon two other high-profile prospects: third baseman Alex Gordon and left fielder Billy Butler.

Both are playing at Class AA Wichita, but the Royals have rarely hesitated to bypass Class AAA Omaha in their player-development process.

“Those guys aren’t ready,” Baird said flatly. “And that’s not our direction right now.”

The recent offensive surge makes it easier to maintain the view that Gordon and Butler should remain at Wichita, but it has done little to quell speculation that Baird’s own time is limited.



Frickin' Eric Mack!!!! It looks like it will be a while for Gordon to come up, unless, Baird gets fired soon. Still got him stashed.
