Ryan was placed on the DL on 5/13/12 with a broken right thumb.

Oh yea. Kinda forgot about that one.
Dumb statement on my part.

I'd like to see Mahoney make it as much as anyone else, but when you're hitting .250 at AAA with not that much power, it's too early to be giving him tastes. It's his first crack at that league, and Norfolk is supposed to be tough in April and May, so I'm not ready to write him off. A lot of people think he's deadweight that is a prime candidate to be cut.

The best reason not to bring up Lew Ford is that he's not on the 40-man roster. Chavez is apparently day-to-day so this may be a moot discussion.

Yeah I wasn't sure what they were going to do with Chavez. But I figured it was worth a discussion. He could still possibly be going to the DL.

No one has fallen in love with Lew Ford. No person here seems to think he's anything more than an old scrub who's dominating a competition level far below his level, due mostly to his seniority.

But look what they're dealing with here. It's a question of which scrub you most prefer out of a pool of scrubs.

Tolleson was the no-brainer here really.

Glad to see him back. I think he belongs in the bigs somewhere.

Discussion is never moot. :ugeek:

Xavier Avery was given a taste. If you see the approach is good, and it looks like Mahoney is doing well now, you give them a chance to prove they can compete at the top level. Its a short look where the manager can pick and choose where to play him. And just like with Xavier, you send the guy back down if he starts to look overwhelmed. 2012's option is used for the year anyway and you do not put yourself in a situation of having to DFA a prospect for someone like Ford, or Hall or Tejada.
