I think WK makes a fair comment. EE has proved himself in AAA but he has not shown that he has fully made the transition to the big leagues. Its not as if he only has one area to work at. He has not excelled with either the bat or the glove in his time in the show. Accordingly, he still needs to work on the some things - making the throw to forst, picking up the grounder and laying of the breaking pitch outside. If he has only one or two lapses during ST then he has shown that he has learnt and knows that he has to improve himself to be a consistent 3B in the show. If not he knows what he has to work at and giving him more time in AAA to make himself an even better player is no crime.
