I can't imagine keeping the kid in the minors when they need big bats in Chicago AND they are paying the dough for him. I just hope he doesn't implode if they rush him up to the bigs.
Just because they are paying him ($1.25M next year) doesn't mean they'll rush him up if he is not ready. That wouldn't help the team or Dayan's confidence. And he really hasn't shown a big bat yet. Great bat speed, but it hasn't translated into a ton of power yet.
