And decisions will soon need to be made on Jordan Smith, Valliquette, and Thompson as well.
I can see Negron going off. I'd had a lot of hope for him before this season, but his production has dropped off a cliff. I don't see a whole lot of hope for him. Valiaka still has hope, Fisher is useful as an emergency reliever, and Thompson has performed well in the minors this year and was a great prospect until recently. They've all got cases to stay.
I don't know what happened to Jordan Smith. He looked good in his time up last year... I'd hoped for a lot more out of him. He could be off as well, though I wouldn't rush to a conclusion yet.
Isn't Valiquette on the 60-day DL?
