Joe Jocketty may or may not already know his future is in the front office. However, everyone else around him knows it is. He was clearly brought on for his front office potential, and I don't think some borderline prospects getting 3 less plate appearances is too much to pay. Besides, having professional experience adds a lot of credibility and understanding of how baseball works in the big leagues. It's no big deal and serves some benefit. Look at how many PAs Justin Tordi
got, and everything still turned out fine.
