What infielders, besides Rosario?
Rosario, Arias, Freeman, Rocchio, Naylor, Noel. Thats 6 guys who are already too good for AAA; competing for 3 spots (and thats with Bell locked into DH role not 1B).
My preference would be to keep Rocchio, Freeman and probably Arias. But they just need to make a decision. Its KILLING Arias and Rosario having 2 of them up at the same time. Rosario pressing (hes not great anyway) and Arias not getting ABs. Imagine when we finally call up Rocchio - who is the best SS prospect of them all and destroying AAA right now. Ultimately, we are just killing our own roster by having them all on the 40-man and 9+ major league capable players taking up 4 spots (with Jose and Gimenez locked into their places).
Same thing with Gonzalez in the OF -- and Valera/Brennan are probably better long-term than him here also. But he needs ABs.
