For them it is more about getting reps and getting the feel back. For prospects, not slated to make the club, I feel they mean a lot more. This is their opportunity to show how ready they are (or are not) and make a case for mid season injury call ups. To this point, I see three prospects that have excelled beyond what we would have thought. They are in no particular order
1. Zach Britton - 9IP 0ER
2. Ryan Adams - 7/14 .500 BA 2 HR, 6 RBI
3. Joe Mahoney - 7/17 .412 BA 3 extra base hits
Obviously Roberts injury status will impact 2B decisions, but I'd love to hear everyone's opinion on what the club should do with these guys. I'm of the opinion that despite their performances, it should remain the minors for all. If Roberts can't come North I'm warming to the idea of letting Ryan play 2nd even with Harris and Andino as options. Kid simply keeps hitting and showing pop.
Just want to throw in that it is nice to talk about guys showing themselves ready for the next level and having no place to put them.

I'm interested in following these players to see how they are doing. We have some very good talent and it will be interesting to see how they match up with these other clubs.
