Re: September Call-Ups
I am the first to admit that I don't fully understand the major league service time stuff. Let me ask this question as it will help me understand it more.
Is there any ramifications say, to calling up Bruce for the month of Sept and then have him beginning next year in AAA with a May 1 callup where he stays in the bigs from then on.
Bruce staying in AAA this year, with him starting April 1 on the Reds roster, staying there for good.
In each case the ML roster time is about the same, but his debut comes earlier in situation 1. Any drawback to that???
