Our AL league has a weird rule that either

a) allows you to move a player back to your farm team, or

b) allows you to keep him for an extra year...

if he doesn't reach the rookie threshold for ABs or innings pitched.

For the last few years, this rule has not had much of an impact. Teams have been calling up their rookies earlier and earlier in the season the last few years.

For some reason, this year there are half a dozen rookies impacted by this rule.

Aaron Judge and Andrew Benintendi's fantasy owners were saved by injuries this year. They'll get another year of time added to the clock if either player makes the majors on Opening Day 2017 or they'll get a farm player if they don't.

Carson Fullmer and Alex Meyer also fall into this weird rule. Raul Mondesi Jr. and A.J. Reed are on the bubble.

Is making his MLB debut today. HR his first AB, single his 2nd AB.

You always wonder about stuff like this, be it Aaron Judge getting blazing hot, or James Shields turning to a batting practice pitcher.  What teeny, tiny, thing makes the difference?  Moving one of your feet a half-inch to the left or right?  The margin for error is so small at this level.


EDIT:  Rotoworld said (6/13):

Spin: Judge has been piping hot over his last 10 games, hitting .389 with eight RBI during that stretch while raising his season average from .221 to .247. Prior to Saturday, the 2013 first-round pick hadn't homered since May 9, a span of 29 games without a home run. The 6'7," 275-pounder will get a chance in the big leagues at some point, but first, he'll need to lower his strikeout rate (64 Ks in 235 at-bats this season).

Let's ponder that.  No, 64Ks in 235 ABs isn't optimal, but it's scarcely an unusual number these days.  I'm not sure that's the reason he's not ready.

From BA today:

Aaron Judge, rf, Yankees. What’s the opposite of a June swoon? A June boon? Whatever it is, Judge is experiencing it. The massive outfielder was 4-for-5 with two homers Tuesday as Scranton-Wilkes Barre beat Toledo (Tigers) 9-2. It was the Fresno State alum’s first multi-homer game. He’s slashing .338/.471/.618 this month with five homers after cratering in May with a .183/.271/.327 slash line. He’s making more contact this month and walking more this month, all positive signs.

Where Judge is judged on three different Top 100 Prospects lists:

Baseball Prospectus - 18

Minor League Analyst - 23

Baseball America - 76

In the software that's posted now we are showing the top 50 BP as PR1 and the top 50 MLA as PR2. I'm entering the top BA 50 as PR3 for the first update (next Thursday). It makes for an interesting and easy-to-see comparison.

I've entered Judge's BA ranking, even though it's not in the top 50, because that's an interesting comparison.
