Last year they kept Young, LaRoach and Crosby, I like the three we kept this year better.
IMO, I don’t think anyone is going to be blocked, I think the filler players will get playing time, but the real prospects will play. They have log jams throughout their system, the two class A teams and GLC team have a lot of guys that are going to get part time duty.
When you think about it, that can be a good thing for the system, nice to have players that you want to get playing time for.

Will d’Arnaud go back down to AA? What might that infield and bench look like?

Right now the Indianapolis infield has Brown, Toregas, and AAA Rule V draft pick Travis Scott at catcher (assuming Scott get’s returned? or sent farther down the line). Fields, Marte are at the corners with Hague deserving of a promotion. What about the forgotten Jeff Clement? Will he primarily serve as the DH? Finally in the middle infield, Ciriaco, Friday, d’Arnaud, with Harrison deserving of a promotion.

Also what about Jim Negrych who did amazingly in Indy last year? He could be a productive middle infield bench option as well.

The Indians bench also contains Brad Chalk (fellow AAA Rule V) as well as super utility Wimberly?

Any roster clarification in Indy? Will this AAA organizational filler block the promotions of three promising prospects in Hague-Harrison-d’Arnaud?

The MLB network is showing the final score Pirates 5 Rays 4. Those facts being the case how can you state, as you did above, “after a couple announcements following today’s loss to the Rays.” Your writer was obviously not watching the same game that myself and 8,003 other fans watched this afternoon at McKechnie Field.
