Re: Chapman to Arizona Fall League
I could be completely wrong about this, but...
I think there was some reevaluation in the organization this year because of the disappointing season. I think that there's a good chance that Dusty has been put on notice about a few things, and that Walt will likely tweak the way the club is run a little. I'm seeing evidence of it in moves such as this. What I'm trying to say, though, is that I honestly believe that Arroyo may not be as assured of a no-matter-what spot in the rotation from April through October as he has been.
This may be wishful thinking on my part, but even if it isn't, I think Chapman's value lies in the rotation and that this shouldn't hinder Bailey's development. We'll see.
