why WS and not Charlotte?

I am wondering the same thing. In the past everyone does their stint in Charlotte. Are they planning on making him go through Birmingham and Charlotte too? This seems crazy.

Or the Vale in Battle of the Bastards.

I think he goes from WS to Charlotte after a week of games. Then probably plays a week of games there too. If he looks good he should be called up the last week of July.

No, no, no….no horseback riding, are you seriously thinking he could ride a horse without awkwardly falling off or jumping into a roadside net?

I'm going to tonight's Dash game. Excited to see Eloy and Cespedes.

Can't wait to make a minor league tour one of these days.

I really wonder how long of a career Eloy will have. I hope a long one.

I think quite a bit depend on if he can transition to 1B/DH next year.  If he works hard and becomes a competent 1B it will allow him to play 140+ games each year in theory.  There's no way he can stay healthy out in LF.  Too many things he can run into out there.

DeGrom made a rehab start in A ball this year. I wouldn't look too much into it.

You even have to ask?

On which part?  I did actually go watch part of a summer league game when it was over 105 at night.

You should absolutely go check Eloy and provide a complete report. 😆

Bad injury like this it's fairly common to start them back down in high A from what I can tell.

I can't believe a rehab assignment would ever start in A ball.

Usually do if its going to be a lengthy one. Take a week at each level to gradually work up. deGromm started at A ball this week too.

Is there a reason why The Pone felt it was necessary to lay into Eloy like this?

Is Stone saying what, at least, 90% of the people on this board are saying: That whether he likes it or not, Eloy has to accept that he's going to be a DH and maybe some 1st base so that he doesn't get hurt anymore. Stone is being honest. Is that "lay(ing) in to Eloy"?  I don't think so.

Fair point. However, I do recall Frank Thomas dropping off somewhat offensively the year he became a DH for a majority of his games. I know Eloy wants to field so it will be interesting to see how his offense responds to him becoming a DH if that is his future.

Yes. 

What is the purpose?

I don't disagree with a single word Steve Stone said during either segment (video from March or the quotes in the article). 

From the video:

  • Eloy can't possibly help this team unless he is in the lineup.
  • In order to be on the field, in order to be great, you have to be durable. Eloy has not proven that he's durable at all, and a lot of the injuries have not been of the particularly smart areas.

From the article:

  • What Eloy wants at this point is truly irrelevant.
  • The number one priority of the team is winning this year. 
  • He has to understand where he fits into the grand scheme of things. Everything is secondary on an individual basis behind team goals.
  • Eloy has to realize that. He's smart enough to realize that. It's what the White Sox want him to do and how he fits into a team that has fought its way to a seven and a half game lead where he hasn't played a minute of it. And so he'll come back, and fit in.

The really great thing I got from that article is that Eloy is only 24
