And they should. Spend 1 month there, and if they are playing well, promote them. It should be part of your obligation to Dayton.
If they don't sign until mid-late August, it's not possible.
If they signed before then, I think they would.
There is no point in starting Leake in Dayton next year. The goal is for him to help the big club as soon as he can, and starting him in Dayton will impede that.
