It doesn't make much sense to bring up your number one hitting prospect to play a couple of times a week. Wedge has stated several times since the promotion "His time will come". You have to get LaPorta at bats and obviously Wedge doesn't think he's ready to be an everyday contributor.http://www.cleveland.com/tribe/plaindealer/index.ssf?/base/sports/1241339509256840.xml&coll=2
I'm not saying he won't stick. It's certainly an option if he hits well. But don't think this is a Braun or Bruce situation where he's definitely not going to have to ride that dirty little minor league bus again.
Its a reactionary move for a team that's struggling. Wedge is quickly joining my list of Manajerks who treat their rosters like impatient fantasy baseball owners and ultimately cost their team wins. See also: Bob Melvin, Ozzie Guillen, Manny Acta, Clint Hurdle, Dusty Baker and maybe Joe Girardi?
