Personally I hope that if he does go on the DL they replace him with Cordell or Phillips, rather than Wren or Nieuwenhuis (who is the most likely)

I don't get why people think Nieuwenhuis is the most likely. He isn't even on the 40 anymore. Why would they burn a 40 spot for a temporary option who will cost more than the others just put of familiarity when the 40 is loaded with outfielders?

#1, they have 2 open spots that aren't being used
#2, for whatever reason, Counsell loves him.

personally i'd rather see a mid-tier prospect like the 2 mentioned about (everyone knows Brinson is not going anywhere) to see what they can do in MLB (both are doing great in the rarefied air in CS)

Don't think they kept that spot open for Nieuwenhuis. Sure hope not anyway.

Cordell would be fine. Phillips too. I'm not as sure as you that it won't be Brinson. He has nearly a year of very good ball now at AAA and certainly has earned a couple weeks up. It doesn't have to be permanent.

Won't happen but my long, long,long shot......Cooper. Leading CS in virtually every category, but blocked here so a chance to showcase him?

Where's he going to play? I don't really have a problem with Cooper being up but if you do it you might as well DFA Aguilar who would have no reason to be here anymore.

But he would have options if he's added. The role of whoever is added to the active roster is likely going to be limited. That's precisely why you bring up a utility type OF like Wren who's proven he can produce even if not in there every day. It's not like Wren hasn't earned it after nearly duplicating his impressive 2016 numbers so far this year.

By the way Cooper saw time in LF last year when the Skysox outfield was not as crowded.

As for Phillips, he's coming off a very sub-par 2016 and despite his good start in 2017, he leads Colorado Springs in strikeouts by a fairly wide margin so he's probably the most likely to have the toughest adjustment to major league pitching. He needs to continue building confidence in AAA.

If Brinson gets the call, it needs to be with the intent to play nearly every day. I don't see them doing that just yet.

I think it comes down to Wren or Cordell.

I think it will be Brinson. This is a short term callup. Why not bring up your top prospect? He'll go back down when Braun returns so no issue to his Super 2 status.

I'm guessing Cordell. A little older guy. Doing well. He's been pretty consistent in his career. Solid, but nothing special. Not a big deal to start his arby clock. Phillips and Brinson can still use some seasoning.

Just a guess.

Because Counsell's been trying to get Aguilar and Frankin more AB's and super sub Perez is around for just this type of short term need. That means whoever comes up will see limited action behind those guys. Let the prospects play regularly till a full time spot opens. Wren is the perfect fit for a limited role.

You will need to use him and not sit him on the bench

Wren's 2016 AAA line in 271 AB's: .339/.425/.432

Wren's 2017 AAA line in 74 AB's: .338/.402/.459

Cordell's a decent option to be sure too, but they have solid RH bats in Perez and Aguilar they can use (with Thames in LF when Aguilar plays). Their lone LH bench bat right now is Nick Franklin. It all comes down to who you trust more in a late inning PH role Cordell or Wren? Cordell has more pop and is RH. Wren can get on and steal a base. Pretty close call. Just so long as it's not Nieuwenhuis.

It will be Captain Kirk. Thames and Perez will get the majority of the time in left with Aguilar at 1B.

Kirk isn't on the 40 man. they'd have to put someone on the 60 day. I think Kirk is done with the Brewers.

I thought someone said there's only 38 on the 40 right now.

Bring back Kirk!!

“There's a fine line between being confident and cocky, or overconfident. This is an extremely humbling game. But if you don't believe in yourself, no one else is going to believe in you.”
