    Bumps Ahead?

    With all the talk of so and so should be bumped up.
    Who would you you like to see bumped up and to what level?
    Who would demote and to what level?
    When would you bump them up?

    I would like to see Bruce up (AA): Williams down (ADV A). After the All-Star Break.
    Jay is ready to be challenged at the next level, but I would also like to see him dominate in the FSL All-Star game.

    I'll go. Since I've been tracking the pitchers I'll stick with those.


    I'd bump Tyler Pelland and Calvin Medlock to AAA.
    I'd cut Brian Shackelford and move Steve Kelly to AA in Medlock's spot.
    I'd bump Ruben Medina to AA in Pelland's spot.
    I'd bump Marcos Mateo to A+ in Medina's spot.
    I'd move one of the extended spring guys to A- no idea which one.

    I agree with all those plus two - Carlos Guevara to AAA and Sean Watson to High A.

    ditto that.

    I'm a big fan of Pelland, and though I wish he had the pitches to be a dominant LH starter, I'm confident he has the pitches to be a dominant LH reliever. But he needs some innings in that role before the bump to AAA. IMO.

    As a reliever, Pelland has a 5.73 ERA. He also has 19K's in 11 IP.
