I would also look at L.J Hoes, as I think there are 2 guys the team could remove from the 40 man and replace with Hoes. He will be a quality bat against left handed pitching, and provide a versatile glove that could play LF, CF, 3B in a pinch.
I've been really impressed with Hoes from what I have seen this week watching him.
However, he looks pretty bad in CF this week, so I don't know how that works out in the future. Almost like they have him there for trade bait (just an assumption, dont take that too seriously!)
I'd love for both to come up. Is it a tad too early? Probably. But the options are thin right now and as Don said, they could provide useful options.
