I think Johnson is a good bet to get called up to the Sox if/when they trade Peavy. I would rather see Thompson continue to work in AA this year, and hopefully earn his way into AAA next year. He is having a bad stretch right now, but I think he can straighten things out.
It is anyone's guess with Sanchez, we will have to wait and see.
Stephen McCray and Kevin Vance are two guys who have been off the radar in Birmingham that could get a shot by the end of 2014 or early 2015. The reason for this is that none of McCray's numbers or pitches really stand out, but he does have very good command of all of his pitches and gets a bunch of groundouts. Vance is another guy who has gotten people out with his good mix of pitches. His curveball has turned into a nice finishing pitch. Even though they have nothing to do with our problem at position players, at least there are some guys who have a shot.
