    I’m pretty excited for a few of these less ballyhooed prospects like Chalmers, lawyerson, winder et al. Their start is pretty similar to guys like balazovic, Ober, graterol and others in that they will be future TD household names. I’m looking forward to their write ups and progress next year!

    Well, regarding Acuna et al, I have to believe they are/were much more elite prospects. I think that Lewis would be completely overwhelmed by major league pitching. What would be the point in having 19 or 20 year old Lewis up here? To flail at advanced pitching and put up lines like Wander Javier? Some dudes are super special, like acuna. Lewis just isn’t on that level and they’ve been decently aggressive with him imo. I do think they could bring up younger pitching faster though.

    I like your suggestions, and they are probably what I would do. Leaning on the young guys is a good move and they have lots of bullets left. I don’t know what role Perez has on this team!? It sure isn’t starter anymore.

    Free Royce Lewis! Anyway, it’s really nice to see him heat up after a tough half+ of the season. That really would be fun to see that AA team, and thanks for the reminder about that Polanco, Sano, Kepler, Buxton team. It’s pretty cool to see so many high level guys one team.
    Anyone else have reservations about Graterol as a prospect? He scares me and I’d deal him if his value is high.

    Reminds me of going to Chattanooga back in ‘15 seeing Polanco, Sano, Kepler, and Buxton. My hopes are even higher for the Hoosville kids.

    Could it be? Is it possible that Wander Javier is showing signs of life late in the season?? It seems like he’s had several multi hit games in the last couple weeks. I hope he doesn’t turn back into a pumpkin.

    I can’t quote on mobile, but Tom, thanks for the post. Graterol’s swinging strike rate does hold up against those other elite prospects and makes me more optimistic.

    For Graterol, I don’t really care that he’s younger than the competition re strikeouts. I care about results for that. He’s got 100 mph heat and he can’t get A+ and AA hitters to whiff? That concerns me especially with the shadow of kohl stewert looming large.

    Does arraez just continue to hit or what? He seems like he got energized by his taste of the big leagues and is just hammering these poor AAA pitchers. It’s nice to see Rooker with a one K day! How often can you say that? This was a pretty positive day in the minors!
