I'm curious why you think this. If the Reds are trying to lock up a playoff spot, isn't the whole point of call ups to add depth and players who can help put you over the top?
If you're out of contention I don't think you call him up, but if the postseason is on the line, he could be crucial to helping you win ball games.
I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.
