Madrigal and Robert are showing that they are men among boys at A+. There’s room to move them to Birmingham now, with corresponding moves that would make sense based on solid/hot starts:

Joel Booker is off to a torrid start; he easily could go to Charlotte to make room for Robert in the Birmingham OF. And both Tilson and Cordell are hitting well enough at Charlotte to earn promotion to Chicago. Maybe Palka goes on the IL with a case of rectal-cranial inversion.

In the infield, if you can make the case that Palka’s condition was transmitted to Yolmer (no doubt from contaminated Gatorade) and thus he also requires an IL stint, then either Ryan Goins or Alcides Escobar could come to Chicago. This makes room in the Charlotte infield for Trey Michalczewski to come up from Birmingham, which makes room for Madrigal in Birmingham.
The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
