And I think they try to hold player values by keeping them down(especially pitchers). If they were to bring up a guy that was throwing hard and striking guys out for some spot bullpen work and he gets slammed in his 3 innings he goes from potential closer to 6 inning matchup guy. Kind of like Chase DArnaud who probably had better value precallup than post.
Locke only had a few starts in AAA before his callup. I also dont think anyone has shown they were ready to make the jump from AA in recent memory. Maybe Pedro. There is no real reason to rush any of their guys. I’d much rather have a guy for his 24-31 years than his 21-28 years, I’ll take more prime years and experience over rushing for need alone.

Also not really true at all for NH’s regime that believes in getting guys a lot of time at AAA before coming up. Some teams do the promote from AA thing, we are not one of them.

AA is where real prospects get playing time. Especially with pitching. I dont wanna have to bring up a young guy for a couple days for an injury and start his clock when you can have a vet you could care less about losing do it.
