Calling him up does not burn an option. Sending him to the minors next year if he's on the 40 man will burn an option. The way he originally reported it, it sounded as if calling him up would burn an option this year and next, which isn't true.
Oh, right. I might owe that to the brevity of Twitter rather than Fay not knowing though. Ultimately Hamilton is probably starting next year in the minors regardless of if they call him up, so the end result is essentially that it will burn an option to call him up.
