Twins brought Buxton up too soon and he very well could be the next B.J. Upton because of it. I prefer not to see this happen with Reed. 


So because Byron Buxton has struggled to date in the majors, AJ Reed would as well?  What makes Buxton a good comp for Reed?  

 

And as the above poster stated, BJ Upton had some solid years.  Buxton has done nothing of note yet.

Pulled hammy = biggest bust of the year Only on rotoworld.....

What a convincing argument.

@crookedmacs not sure of your preference.  But if Reed gets called up when you say.  A lot of dudes will be throwing themselves at you.  Are you ready for that?

 

I'd rather Reed see daily AB's in AAA then come up and split time w/ Marwin.  Marwin has earned his PT right now, so Reed is just gonna have to wait for his shot. Hope he can stay hot in the meantime and come up hungry.

According to the Twitterz, AJ Reed has been called up:

...And what appears to be confirmation from Astros' beat writer:

 

@jakemkaplan: Can confirm @1250SportsTalk report that A.J. Reed has been called up to the Astros. Team has no comment.

 

 

Take this info for whatever it's worth.

Reed. what a big disappointment.  Maybe 2017 is a better year for him.

He's destroying AAA again, I could see him get another shot this year. "Big disappointment" is kinda rough from just a bad first month.

Depends on what one expected.  He flat out SUCKED in that month.  Hit 2 bombs i believe, though probably more luck than skill.

Okay. He absolutely sucked but let's not take away his HRs. You don't hit a lucky HR in the majors. Reeds power is legit. He just needs more time and to get his timing/confidence back.
