IMO, Juan Perez should be a September call-up and will have another shot to impress. He's already a plus defender with a plus arm, but he was clearly overmatched at the plate after an initial hot start (which happens to most prospects). Not saying he's the long-term answer at leadoff/CF, but he deserves a more consistent look. Unfortunately we already know what Blanco/Torres can do at CF and leadoff, so they have nothing to lose by giving Perez a shot.

I think Torres/Blanco are hitting like .098 since the break

I am down for anyone besides these two.

he slugged .473 last year, he was getting extra base hits, he is at .386 this year.... all singles.

Arias will be an upgraded defensively and is hitting around .300 right now.

I doubt anyone would agree with you. But, that is nothing new.
Torres and Blanco are hot garbage. anyone would be better at the plate than either of those two.

In general, it would be incredibly dumb to not let as many young guys as possible get a ton of ABs. Kieschnick, Brown, Adrianza, Perez, Monell should get long looks....and just play Belt at first every day.

Agree
Probably not Brown though, doesn't deserve a call-up...not sure why I listed him. Meant Heath Hembree, but wrote Brown.
For the future Blanco should be a reserve outfielder.

His stock isn't going to be much lower anyway. May as well let him come up and pinch run and get a couple starts in CF.

Practically speaking, I get that...but a September call-up is also a reward for good-to-great performance during the year. All the guys listed before (Hembree, Perez, Monell, Adrianza and I'd throw in Peguero) have either been consistently good all year or have really turned it on towards the end of the year, and getting that major league call-up is the icing on the cake.

Brown just hasn't done enough during the year or down the stretch to warrant that kind of reward nor inclusion on the 40-man roster.

Don't disagree but they need to figure out what they're going to do with him.

I think one more year in the PCL should determine whether he sticks around/comes up or they cut their losses with him (maybe trade him for whatever they can get).
