Zach Britton was a Third Round steal. Maybe Wright will be, too.

Funny. They actually have somewhat similar arsenals.

It bothers me that Ruettiger is not playing every single game at AA.

Widlansky, Miller and Richardson should not be taking away AB from him.
I'm alright with Welty and Britton out there, but Ruettiger needs to play every day.

I would not run to the hills in either way with Gausman, good or bad. You just want to see him work in a professional setting and get his feet wet this season.

Why not just release Miller? He had an oppurtunity here and he blew it. Now he can't hit AA pitching. Much rather see Ruetty play than Jai.

I agree with your logic but isn't Miller playing at Bowie?

He is. And is striking out in nearly 50% of his PAs.

Yes Miller was playing for Bowie and was taking away at-bats from Ruetty.

Because there was no room for him. Miller should be cut and Ruetty should be playing in Bowie.
