    Urshela is garbage. He's the replacement level player with no options guy. He also has no upside. I hate players like that.

    Blue Jays middle infield is hot garbage. I can't believe Urshela is our everyday SS for the foreseeable future.

    He's horrible. I wonder why they sent Gurriel down. I wonder if there was some sort of discipline issue or something? That's pure speculation but when Diaz went down it made no sense to option Gurriel IMO.

    Good list but I'd drop Alford down quite a bit. Maybe right above Bo. I'm not giving up on him but he just hasn't played a ton of organized baseball due to football and injuries. He needs a full healthy year in AAA IMO.

    He was awful in that game against Sale but Sale makes a lot of hitters look bad. I thought they were pretty quick to demote after giving him more opportunity. It was a bizarre move for sure. He should have been given an extended opportunity to play Shortstop. He was hitting the ball hard was getting extremely unlucky and advanced stats showed that as well.

    I wonder if they will have Grichuk use his full rehab time to get as many at-bats as possible. We don't really have a pressing need for him in the Outfield.

    Perhaps Travis could actually start hitting and he could DH some too.

    I wonder if this means that Diaz will be back soon. Urshela is the only SS on the roster now.

    I leave for one week and I see Ryan Goins 2.0 is the everyday short stop.

    Why must the injury plague be so cruel?

    He was half a win on the negative. I mean people expect them to dump Morales and his $11M (as do I) but Lourdes was just as bad

    Lourdes was ridiculously unlucky, his defense looked pretty stable and his baserunning is very good. It's not like he was lost out there and showed no signs of improving.

    Does WAR take into effect his xwOBA or batted ball profile? I agree with you, he struggled and doesn't scream big league starter to me but there were some things there that I thought warranted him playing over the Urshela's of the world. Hit the ball pretty hard, seems to have decent footspeed and a strong arm.

    I actually like Lourdes a lot...but it's not like you can say "why did they send him down?", and not factor in that he didn't help the team when here and he struck out 8.5 times more than what he walked. He has to put up better power numbers (or prove to be a BABIP beater) to counter that he's never going to walk.
