If they're wasting the year on Kopech, might as well call up Eloy tomorrow as well.

Was thinking the same thing, might as well wait 10 lousy days and save a year.

Pretty sure that's a given. Minor league season ends Sept 3, should be up then because Charlotte won't make the playoffs.

Not sure why they are wasting a year on Kopech, but no need to compound it by wasting an Eloy year.
Plus, it often takes pitchers a while to settle in.
I hope Cooper doesn't mess him up. Giolito, Lopez and Fulmer haven't exactly blossomed under the icon.

Well that just made the week a lot more exciting. Catch me hanging around the left field bullpen at about 6:40 on Tuesday.

I'd be at the game Tuesday if I didn't have a previous commitment; but I'll do my best to catch one of his starts live before the end of September.

Great news. I’m still not certain Eloy gets the call. I feel like pitchers definitely have more difficulty transitioning to the majors than position players. Kopech could definitely use all the experience he can up here this year. Eloy is ready, but I still think the Sox keep him down purely for service time and then he’s with the Sox early next year. I’d assume Cease replaces Kopech in AAA, though after his last outing, I’m not sure.

The Cardinals had two different guys make their MLB debuts this year by taking no hitters deep into the games.

But then, my friends who are Cub fans tell me the Cards signed a deal with Devil long ago since they seem to bring no-name players who immediately play as if they are season vets heading to the HOF.

Wow! At this point, I wasn't expecting this. I would have been fine if they decided to keep him down until mid-April, but I'm not going to waste my time worrying about service time. I can't wait to see him in action.

Happy early birthday to me.

Kopech has basically pitched the equivalent of a full season at AAA after having pitched almost all of 2017 at AA. He also has had a full season split between A and A+.

Eloy hasnít yet played a half season at AAA - 40 games - and only had 71 games at AA, and only had 71 games at A+. Iíd like to see him called up, too, but they at least can legitimately claim, ďhe hasnít had a full season at any minor league level.Ē

If they don't bring up Eloy, then I think it is a smart move to stagger their respective free agency years.
