Again, I repeat.......the purpose of this thread isn't to state that Lutz is ready, or should be starting in LF, etc.........it's simply to get people's take on what he's shown so far.
It's very clear to everyone he will be sent back down. That's not even debatable.
I slightly disagree about being sent back to double AA simply because every one of our minor leaguers pretty much had very slow starts.......like it was ugly all over every level for the most part other than a few guys. Lutz numbers could simply be attributed to a slow start at double AA. Just like Billy is starting to come on at Louisville, maybe the majors were just what Lutz needed to get going.
If they send him to double AA, that's fine. Let him earn a promotion. But I wouldn't mind seeing him at triple AAA, because I think there's a chance he simply started slow like everyone else from Dayton, Bakersfield, Pensacola and Louisville.
