Brian Johnson to the 10 day, Elias to the 60 and Maddox called up.
I forgot that we still had Elias. Nice to see Maddox get a look
Pretty clear that he got the shot over Workman and Martin because he's capable of going 3 IP at a shot, something he's done twice in his last 5 outings. Not sure that's a good reason, though. He's been surviving on BABIP (with a worsening of xFIP) since his promotion last year to Portland, and it's rare that that nibbling trick works in MLB.

Fully expect his production to crater until he finally gets put on the DL with a 720 OPS. In the article it says there isn't much you can do for it. How about not facing 95mph fastballs with a fractured toe? How about resting it instead?

Someone needs to tell Butterfield and Farrell that even though the offense has been disappointing, being this aggressive and careless on the bases is only exacerbating our problems scoring runs. We've been fortunate enough to win a few games despite some terrible baserunning, but it will definitely catch up to us at this rate.
