    I’ll pass on Zumaya moving to the rotation.

    Jonah Nickerson is still a near 24-year-old in A-ball.

    Very interesting piece from Henning. I like those pieces.

    I agree with Mike about Nickerson. He’s pitched well, but he’s been a bit too hot and cold to make a promotion obvious.

    If there is a promotion to Erie from the Lakeland rotation, I’ll be curious to see who’s first between Nickerson, Below and Porcello. Nickerson’s age and control might make him the front-runner.

    I’d like to see Below get the call soon. 22.5% K Rate, 9.6% BB rate, 3.39 FIP. I’ll take it.

    Then Porcello get the call for the final few weeks of August and then he’ll make the trip to Detroit when the rosters expand.
