    as expected, phil is not ready for a major league callup, still needs more seasoning elite changeup. im so glad cervelli and tabata are doing well at their ages and levels, but whats the news on vech’s struggles, mike? dont u think they shouldve left him at charleston, where he struggled last year too and was only league average?

    Has Tabata failed to reach base yet? When’s he set to be promoted?

  3. yankz says:

    Not that I’m advocating moving him quickly, of course.

    Keep in mind that for Hughes’ start tonight, it was 40 degrees and snowy. It’s nearly impossible to feel your fingers in that weather, making breaking balls and control exceedingly hard to find. One bad start in terrible weather is hardly indicative of his being ready or not.
