It's not like they're going to suddenly challenge for the playoffs if they bring him up now. Leave him where he is till August if they can is the game plan, as that guarantees the Rays of controlling him for another full season down the road.
Interesting. Great point hybrid.
But, Lamar has made plenty of questionable moves over his tenure. What would give for him not to make another one?
You mean until September for September callups, right? If he's called up in SEP, he's arbitration eligible a year later, correct, instead of being called up now?
