Considering that this

Yes, but 3-4 years? At some point, you'd hope we'd have legitimate prospects taking up the extra 15 slots. Not guys that spent five years hitting .250 in low minor league ball with little speed or defensive capability. Yeah, this guy had promise. Five years ago. His injury didn't set him back, he's been pretty awful overall.
