Default Will there be promotions to AAA for the playoffs?

I saw that the Braves promoted 4 of the best prospects in their system to Gwinnett to stack their playoff roster.

With the Knights having improved their playoff chances, I expect some promotions for them as well. Charlotte's biggest weakness is starting pitching and I could see Flores getting pulled up (especially since Kubat is keeping his head above water). Maybe another of the older starters like Banks too, though I'm not sure how many soft-tossing lefties are needed.

Birmingham has a very strong bullpen and it will be interesting to see who gets the callups. Dopico is one of the older ones, and solid, but the Sox might want to challenge Heuer or Tyler Johnson or someone else who they see in Chicago next year.

Among the position players, I could see them promoting Sheets and playing him over Reed. Charlotte is also thin at third base so someone less deserving might get a shot.
