If a kid is ready to come up I don't think it's fair to keep him down just because you know it's a lost year anyway and you want to delay his free agency. That being said, if he only threw 2 innings in spring training, he probably could of used some more seasoning.

Btw how good is Fernandez, what was he ranked as a prospect? This is literally the first or heard of him, but apparently he's the second coming of Doc Gooden, according to our broadcasters.
Yeah, #5 overall by Baseball America.
Through 2 starts his numbers are a 0.82 ERA, 0.73 WHIP, and a 13.3 K/BB ratio.
If Cingrani is on this could be a great young pitcher's duel tomorrow night.
