Frazier and Cozart are worth more to the MLB team than Fransisco is right now. Especially if Juan is as fixed as hes going to get.
On that note, Cozart and Frazier should be up. But remember, AAA is more a place for journeymen and AA is where the real talent is, at least thats how it was for awhile. It seems as if a lot more top end talent makes it to AAA nowadays

JF getting it doesnt really impress me unless he gets it for a long period of time. Cozart and Frazier being polished should mean they get promoted quicker should it not? Especially when they are actual options for the ML club next year.

This guy has been considered a lost cause since he was putting up an 8/1 K/BB ratio at Dayton 2 years ago. Now that he has done very well against AA pitching and lowered his K/BB significantly, you won't deign to be impressed? Too bad, because this is a player to start to get excited about.JF getting it doesnt really impress me unless he gets it for a long period of time.
People ignore the ability of players to learn and get better. Francisco is young and Dominican. There are hurdles for those players, but it is plain as day that he is improving. And he has plenty of time to continue improving.
I'm happy when any prospect takes a strong step forward. Doesn't matter if it's my favored guy or not.
