This is basically what I’m saying. I’m not writing him off… I just don’t see how playing in AAA will help him any longer. He’s REALLY good in AAA already! He needs more reps, better coaching and help from a guy like KikéAgain, in 331 PA split over 2 seasons.
Setting aside Durran’s knuckleheaded tendencies (and with the caveat that I don't have a problem with him going down in these circumstances), at what point is a prospect able to come up to Boston and not need more “seasoning in triple-A” when they struggle? The divide between MLB & AAA has gotten larger (witness Spencer Torkelson) and if the team is going to have any hope of integrating young, cost controlled players into the lineup we’re going to have to live with their stuggles for longer.
