They have plenty of SP depth (Karstens, Morton, Gomez). Perhaps in the future, if he can develop better control he could be stretched out to a starter. But right now he just walks too many batters.

When he is healthy they should DFA him. Mercer belongs on the big team.

As for position players we are stuck with McDonald because no one is going to take him on waivers if he is dfa’ed. That means they would have to pay him full salary to sit on the bench in Indianapolis because Chase or Jordy are going to need most of the playing time. Lets face the facts that it was a very bad signing. I can only think of 3 people who liked it. Hurdle, Huntington and McDonald.

Also, Sands wouldn’t replace Jones, since you need a guy to hit RHP to replace Jones. Watson isn’t eligible for arbitration after this season.

How much playing time is Sands getting at 1B?
