Default Jhoan Urena

3B/1B that jumped straight to Vegas from St Lucie. Homered tonight. Is this somebody we should be paying attention to? If so hope he can stick at 3B.

Seems like his defense at 3B has gotten rough reviews

So, if I remember... he was a hot item until he hit A+ and stopped hitting... then he fell off the map. Vegas is the perfect place to rebuild his value because he can probably hit again there but it will be fool's gold.

I wouldn't read too much into him going to Vegas, it's the end of August, there's like 4 days left in the season, and Vegas desperately needs bodies to fill out a roster after we promoted their entire team. And it's not David Thompson because Binghamton is going to playoffs so they didn't want to disturb that roster too much. So Urena temporary skips a level as a nice reward for a good season. Still probably going to Binghamton next year.

Don't we have to make a decision to protect him this year?

With all of the relievers who need to be protected + Guillorme and Oswalt I think there's like a 1% chance that Urena is on the 40.
