Makes sense, I mean Duran hasn't been impressive offensively, but he sure has opened up eyes with his versitality. Also, I think he is a huge part of the future being our utility guy who plays more on the field then he does warming up the bench. This basically says it all, "However, his recent slump left the Rangers in a bind, as manager Ron Washington acknowledged on Monday that Duran would benefit from daily playing time. " True dat playa.
Loe on the other hand I was really hoping to see flourish into a long man role this year, but he still needs a lot of work. He can also benifit from being sent down.
Metcalf can only play the hot corner so this move is very surprising. Maybe they have him playing more at third and Vazquez playing more positions around the infield. Not sure where they are going with this.
Glad that the Milly is back. Hope all is well and hopefully he adds an extra boost to a depleted rotation that really has only seen consistant starts from Padz. Ponson follows that but he, I would think, is still on a leash.
Here is the million dollar question, Is Duran being sent down a mistake? I mean it can only benefit him in the long run, but bringing up Metcalf to replace him is silly, imo.
