I am not exactly sure where I fall in this thought process. If you are worried about laziness with Yorman, nothing should light a fire in him quicker than 19 Ks in his first 43 PA. I like to challenge my hitters and if Yorman is worth his weight, he will rebound and learn how to hit this kind of pitching. If he languishes for half a season and shows no progress, you may have to send him down to Dayton to get his swing straight, but you would hope he learns a tough lesson now and starts preparing for every game like a major leaguer.
