Ballard has had his moments. Interesting that there are a lot of AAA guys taking a step back. That's not the typical AA profile, which is more of a prospects league, i thought. OTOH, Hood, Perez, Kobernus will not have players on training wheels around them. That may help their development. Also, I'd expect more midseason promotions from Potomac pushing aside some of the filler, especially a guy like Rendon or maybe Purke if healthy.
