What is the centerfield depth chart? I.e. if Span were hurt (knock on wood) would they move Revere over and bring up the Maestro as a backup or would they just bring Benson up?
I would think it's Span, Revere, Benson. I really think Benson is behind Mastroianni in the order of call ups because 2 (at minimum) of the four will have to get hurt before they can even think about calling him up because they will want him in the lineup everyday.
If Span gets hurt: Revere slides to center and a combination of Plouffe and Doumit play left, Mastroianni gets called up as the fourth outfielder
If Revere gets hurt: Plouffe or Doumit play left, Mastroianni gets called up as the fourth outfielder
If Willingham gets hurt: Plouffe or Doumit play right, Mastroianni gets called up as the fourth outfielder
When we start looking at Span and Revere getting hurt, then you have to call up Benson because otherwise it is Mastroianni everyday in center and I'm not sure how far that would work unless Benson is absolutely struggling in Rochester. In the corners you probably have to go even deeper because Doumit can play the corners and will if someone gets hurt and then I think Parmelee would get the call to DH, but that is looking more at who is hitting at Rochester and whether how Parmelee is hitting and Doumit's glove balance out to be better than what Benson may offer if he is struggling.

I like how your "crystal ball" thinks. The Dozier part I'm still not sure about. I would like to see it happen.
These 3 together in April (no call ups, they make the roster) :
Hendriks (because Baker starts the season at the DL)
Dozier (because he will be the starting SS, with Carroll as the utility guy)
Parmelee (because he will be the starting 1B with Morneau either on the DL or as the DH)
Benson will get called up July when Span gets traded
that's my crystal ball
