I wouldn't have ever imagined Porcello would have made it up so soon...or Andrus....Holland got rushed through AA and AAA much quicker than I thought he would....Cahill and Anderson starting the year in the rotation was a suprise....etc
Anyway, it seems its more about what the organization is willing to do more than how old the player is and how he is performing.....for example I wouldn't dare want Heyward or Parker to see anything more than a cup a tea at the end of the season, if even that, if they were on my team...just not the way I'd go about it.

Steve Pearce OF/1B PIT - He's crushing the ball over the past month... Had a super small stint in the majors Adam LaRoche trade now allows Garrett Jones to play 1B full time. This would then give Steve Pearce a shot at an every day OF spot. He'd be competing with Brandon Moss for RF. Could also be Jones' back up first basemen.

1B/OF Steve Pearce will be recalled from Class AAA Indianapolis on Thursday night and is expected to get the majority of starts at first base following the trade of 1B Adam LaRoche to Boston on Wednesday. Pearce, 26, is hitting .287 with 13 homers and 54 RBIs in 76 games at Indianapolis. He also spent three weeks with the Pirates earlier this season and went 1-for-12 (.083) with six strikeouts in nine games.

Kila is already a FA in most fantasy leagues and therefore wouldn't have to be used as a waiver wire pick up.
