When does he have to be added to the 40 man roster?  I think he gets another year?  If he had to be added, then I'd definitely see him come up at the end of the year.  If not, then I could see him just finishing out the year at Rochester and being invited to next year's spring training. 

Give Kieboom or an FA a run at 3rd, then if Alu does well in Rochester and Kieboom Kiebusts, swap them at some point in 2023.

He'd have to be added.  2019 college draftees are eligible this season despite the loss of the 2020 season.  Combined between there being no MLB Rule 5 last year and the roster crunch caused by the lost season, this could be a bumper crop of Rule 5s.  Good season to have the top pick.
