Let's look at third base right now in the system. What happens is Travis Mattair goes down? You can't promote Vidal. But even if you could, you can't promote Rahier or Mejias-Brean. Perfect scenario to bring on a journeyman.
Promote Wright or Silverio and let Brodie Green play 3B. He needs versatility to have a chance at any value anyway. Otherwise Ray Chang is already on hand. There are already enough vets to fill in. The promotion wouldn't always need to be at the same exact position.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
