I think they do intend to give him a big chance.
While A ball is far away from the majors, the bar he has to beat - Flowers and Phegley - is far below the average major league bar.
And like Tom says, nurse him along, put him in favorable matchups. Might need to work a trade out; or we may just want to dump him. We'll see.
I guess I'm the only one, but I liked this Rule V pick a lot.
