I guess the only thing I would say is that while wins and losses may not matter at the major league level right now, getting outs in individual pitcher-hitter matchups still does matter. In AAA, that is not the case.

For example, if Kopech wanted to focus on throwing more changeups in a particular game, hitters may catch on quickly and wait on it instead of waiting on his blazing fastball. If he throws 90-100 pitches to about 20 batters but only retires about 12 of them, I want those missing innings covered by the Charlotte bullpen, not the major league bullpen.
