Im not sure what to say about Westburg other than hes not on the 40 man and there are legit MLB players in front of him. He deserves a look for sure. Period.
Except those teams didn't have legitimate prospects ready and waiting.
I kinda don't get it. I won't cry over the production these has been's are currently providing. But when exactly would be the time to allow prospects to make their way to becoming big leaguers? Or is that only for the blue chippers?
Here is one thing that popped into my head Id like to get thoughts on . If they intended to trade Westburg how much value does he retain simply by the next team being in control of his service time. So if the Os bring him up now then you start his clock. Maybe his next team would try to manipulate to get the extra year. I doubt that plays much if any part. If hes traded to a team they are likely to start his service time immediately and your looking at the same 6 years of team control after this year.
