Cinreds21, I agree with you. I just am questioning why teams do it that way. I want the players with the best skills to get every chance possible to be an above-average regular. If that is the goal of your minor league system (to churn out as many above-average regulars as possible), then why promote a guy to AAA who has little chance of ever making the big club while preventing one of your top prospects from having a chance to grow as a ballplayer. Doesn't make sense to me.
