So far today 0-1 with a walk. Hope to see the next at bat as I just turned the game on. Hassell is 0-2 so far.

He will be up top of the 5th.  After Bobby Barrels.

Kieboom has only 350 MLB at bats. So not even a full season. Certainly be performed poorly when he had the chance but no reason not to give him another chance given his pedigree and he has some power. Which the team lacks.

yep, but give him the opportunity at Rochester before calling him up. In 2021 at Rochester he posted .237 / .376 / .385 with 5 home runs in 148 ABs FWIW.

Sure. Go slow I say. A month in Harrisburg.  Then a month or two in Rochester.

Yes. Let Kieboom demonstrate that he has improved from 2020 and 2021.

Ropes a double to left center and then scores on a double by Blankenhorn. That one could have been caught. Love that name.

Don’t forget the single!  I just saw a couple innings so didn’t see if he had any chances at 3B.

He might get a chance on Friday if Jeimer goes on the DL from the ankle injury he had today.

I say give him at least the rest of May in the minors. Let Alu start at third.

he's had 16 plate appearances at AA and 10 at AAA coming off TJS. no way he should be up this week. Alu is here, as is  Vargas and even Chavis. 3rd is well covered.

Frankly, if there is another 60 day IL candidate, then they should use it and call up Matt Adams at this point. they have Garrett plus alu for the OF, Chavis and Vargas for the IF. plenty of coverage. they can use a slot for a lefty power hitting pinch hitter, especially one you don't mind going a week+ between starts. maybe 60 day dickerson at this point.

Only reasons to play Vargas would be to pump up trade value. Chavis shouldn't even be on the roster at this point.

not going to put up an argument with this. Alu should get a shot at replacing Candy should he be il'd. I'm just saying it's outright :smh: if they bring up Kieboom at this point due to a lack of need and his minimal playing time after surgery.

Second game in a row he's not in the lineup. So I guess he's hurt again.
