Hopefully they give Blash a lions-share of the playing time for the next 2-3 weeks while Kole finishes his Catholic exorcism/Chumash sweat lodge/Nepalese isolation trek/Santeria blood-letting efforts.

Chris Young probably bought another month thanks to one MAYBE hitting performance yesterday, that did still include fumbling an easy play in the corner to give the Twins an extra base.

Hopefully this means Herm has had his audition, has been tasked with things to work on everyday in AAA, and now Blash gets his shot at regular playing time to show if he can translate years of PCL success to the majors. 

The winner gets 4th OF or a platoon with Kole upon his triumphant return and Chris Young's DFA.

Is Hermosillo supposed to be an everyday player or just a bench one? Asking honestly what does he project as?

His ceiling is that of an everyday RFer. Not a star but a quality player (Calhoun before the suck). Most likely he ends up being a good 4th outfielder.

This is a good thing. Hermosillo will be a solid major leaguer someday, but he needs to be in AAA. He isn't done developing yet. He was only forced into action because Calhoun and Young suck.

Blash on the other hand is done developing and being in AAA wasn't doing him any favors.

One minute AW is calling for this guy to get every day AB's and then when he strikes out 3 times, AW calls for him to be shipped to Siberia. 

Now batting fourth for the Siberia Nomads... RFer - Jabari Blash.
