Yes. Since he was paid alot he needs to play in the Bigs. Forget the fact that he doesn't have a position, has bad plate discipline, struggles mightily with pitch recognition, and is reportedly still out of shape.
Unless everything all of a sudden comes together for him in the AFL or the first half of next season, he will not be in Chicago.
The kid still has tons of potential, but to have him playing in the Pros after a rather underwhelming year with plenty of things to work on would be moronic.
