Carlos Gonzalez won't get called up this year. It is going to be hard to get called up with an outfield consisting of:
Chris B. Young
I doubt they are commited to starting an all rookie outfield.
I see him as a 20 homer guy, .275, maybe 5-10 steals. Nothing really special. that is okay, but not great from an Outfielder.
Gonzalez will at least get a cup of coffee come september.
Braun and Gonzalez have much bigger Upside.
