Thanks for this.
This organization has an odd way of handling pitching prospects. Some, like Haeger and Day, are allowed to fester for YEARS and YEARS, never improving, never increasing in value, and never making strides towards the big club.
Others, like Logan and Sisco, are RUSHED to the bigs from the minors, and then we all wonder why they're underdeveloped.
I'm not sure if Egbert is more like a festering Haeger in the organization, or if he's just not good enough for some reason...
