What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
With all of the speculation about trades, I've been thinking about how long it would take for some of the possible chips to help us at the big league level. When do you expect to see:
making an impact? I agree with Kinsler's comments about us being able to win with this group now. We've shown it over the past 2 years. I don't think we are regressing at all. But it sure will be nice to see those guys and more contributing.
Wouldn't be surprised to see perez in 2013 especially if they don't trade or sign another sp with colby hitting free agency next year and it won't make sense to resign him with perez needing a spot unless the plug him into the pen profar is likely 2 years away imo. Scheppers I'm not sure I've been expecting him to make the jump for awhile and it is always nice to have another power arm in the pen not sure about ramirez or olt but I'm very excited to see these guys make the jump especially perez and profar
Don't guess he's "homegrown" but don't forget L. Martin.
I think Perez will be up this year, maybe Sept. Maybe Ramirez too. Definitely Martin this year. I still expect Scheppers to be traded, but if not, and he's healthy, then he will probably be up this year too.
Unless traded, Perez, Ramirez, Scheppers have already enough AA/AAA experience to be on the OpeningDay roster ( would however be due to injuries elsewhere ) and will be up at least in relief any time in 2012. Olt likely a mid season 2012 call up as a right handed first baseman or an injured Beltre. Profer will/is a fast riser and should be ready for 2013 with a small chance of mid to late 2012, if he proves he can easily handle AA.
