    Re: The dawn of Yorman Rodriguez?

    So lets say in 2015, Yorman makes the 25 man roster and on day one is put on the DL with a strained felange. He is transferred to. The 60 day DL, he does a minor league rehab assignment and joins the MLB team in Sept at the end of the max time allowed on rehab. Because he was on a rehab assignment, is an option saved and preserved for 2016?

    Yes, but you would have wasted 2 things more valuable. A year of his major league service time, and almost a whole year of his development.

    He would have to remain in the Majors from that point forward in his career or be exposed to waivers first.

    I was thinking he could get time at extended Spring then actual playing time in the minors and then Sept time as opposed to wasting his time on the MLB bench playing 3 innings a week.

    The players association would never allow that to happen.

    You'd also be paying him roughly 450k to do nothing.

    Really? I doubt you'd get much.

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

    He is batting .250 at AA ball and you call him a solid bench player? We have a bench full of "bench players". .250, in my book, doesn't cut it. Also, hitting 1 home run in his past 100 at bats does not sound like a guy with power. Send him packing and move on.

    Someone obviously does not believe in player development...

    He is the youngest every day player in the Southern League. He is playing against pitchers with an average age of 24.3 years. It is no surprise he isn't tearing the cover off of the ball right now. Phil Ervin, the Reds 1st round draft pick this season, is a month OLDER than Yorman Rodriguez is. He is currently hitting .267 in rookie ball with 2 home runs in 90 at bats. Should we send him packing and move on as well?

    not disagreeing with your assertion, but Ervin has 5+ years before he needs to be put on the roster. that's a pretty big difference.

    Certainly, that makes a rather big difference, but I wanted to put things into some perspective for armybratnumbers given the complaints about performance.

    I can't believe there are some people who think Yorman has any legit trade value. Why would a team have any interest in an OF with an OPS of .678 at AA? Especially one with an alleged attitude problem at times.

    I'll be surprised if Yorman ever makes it in MLB. Extremely surprised.
