Gregory Polanco and maybe Hanson, should be promoted to Altoona at some point this season.

He’s 25 years old, which is two years younger than Hague.

While Matt Hague may or may not be major league material, I would be just as comfortable having him called up if there is an injury as guys like John McDonald, Brandon Inge, Jared Goedard or Jerry Sands. Same goes for Harrison or Presley or d’Arnaud.

So Glasnow to A+, Kingham to AA, Taillon to AAA, Cole to MLB. Boys looking good, time to restock with two HS arms in Kohl Stewart and Phil Bickford and place them in short season A with Heredia.

This is how I envisioned he’d play when he played well in A ball but he had some unfortunate incidents that set him back. Glad he turned it around for his sake. I really think it’s about that time for the Fort… a fan favorite. He’s not a LH bat he’s just fresh legs for Martin and why shouldn’t Sanchez be given the chance to be those fresh legs, he’s actually going somewhere. As for Allie, it’s about that time he goes to Bradenton. What does he have to do to get called up? I would move Glasnow up as well. He has just been dominant. I would also consider a double move up Cole to MLB/Taillon to AAA.
