Seems like a small pricetag to bring a guy up for a month.

The reasons for bringing up someone in september are a longer bench in a playoff run, to rest a aging vet so hes well prepared for next year, a test for a minor leaguer who is in the plans for next year and filling a position because of injury. Bringing up the likes of Morel, Tekotte, Gimenez,Troncoso, Castro means meal money, minimum mlb salary, housing and travel which adds up and makes no sense. I see very few if any minor league position players that should be in the mix of making the big league club next year. The Sox currently have enough young pitchers to look at on the staff. The Sox have never been one that pisses money away and this would basically be that. And no I have not read this and I doubt they would ever say this due to the bad PR it would bring but it does make sense.
