Hit his third HR since moving up to Rochester last night. .235/.303/.412 in 19 games since getting to Rochester. Hasn't committed an error in 18 games at 3B and has been pretty consistent there over the years.

He hasn't shown much, but he's shown me exactly enough to want to DFA Franco (or catapult him to the moon) and call Alu up.
He can't be worse than Franco. Don't call him up so early that he screws up his approach trying to adjust to MLB pitching, but if he hits 100 ABs and has a passable OPS, call him up. Abrams, Alu, and Garcia would be a fun IF down the stretch.
