Nothing to prove, except maybe strikezone judgement and patience, which is something big. And maybe the ability to be productive when his BABIP drops to something reasonable (it's .442 at AAA this year).
September call up? Sure. If they moved Rios? Sure. But what's the point in bringing him up now with no spot to play? He's got plenty to continue to work on at AAA.
