I don’t understand…

In NL parks the pitcher hits, so they use pinch hitters. If you have 3 or 4 bench hitters, and 1 is a catcher you are handcuffed

It's not gonna happen until after the All-Star break, if not later. Brujan now doesn't have a hit since June 20th (maybe it's mental since Franco got the call over him) and he's 0 for 19 this week. Combine that and Wander Franco struggling to find hits himself in the MLB (he'll come around), as well as good offensive production from Manuel Margot, and the infield logjam...I don't see the Rays in a hurry to get him up.

It sucks too because he was playing so well - he was due for a cold streak. Nobody could expect him to keep crushing and then add in the timing of an MLB snub and a prolonged wait is almost definitely forthcoming. They have all the reason they need to say he’s not ready despite the fact that he was ready 3-4 weeks ago when Taylor Walls was called ahead of him. That was another dumb move because Walls doing well blocks him and for what? There are no serious plans for him. It’s just another wrench for Brujan. Brujan is a supremely mature person — and they should know this. He’s also mature enough to know he’s getting jobbed. They Rays don’t seem to care what that does to their players and how little it makes them want to negotiate early deals or stay there beyond their rookie deals.

The Rays have zero interest in signing players past their arb years so they have zero incentive except to maximize returns during the "control" years.  

They are smart.  The system is full of reverse incentives and should be scrapped.

Manuel Margot (hamstring) is expected to be placed on the injured list.

Advice: The injury was suffered during Monday's game, though the severity isn't yet known. For what it's worth, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times names prospect Vidal Brujan as a logical replacement in advance of Wednesday's doubleheader. Stay tuned on that.

would love to see a ROS season call up with regular playing time, but im not super optimistic thats what we get.  guess severity of margot's injury may help determine the outcome...

Hamstrings can be tricky...
