Nothing in that article about Robert chasing pitches that are up. Yes he needs to work on pitch recognition and not swing at pitches not in the zone but that can mean many different things and the only way to do that is to do it at the MLB level. He can't get used to hitting against major league pitching in the minors.

Also, I'd say Getz is going to find ANY excuse to justify keeping him down until mid-April

Riding shotgun on the Sox bandwagon since before there was an Internet...

I think in the current environment they have to do it. They could have made it easier on themselves PR-wise by leaving him in AA another month, sending him to AAA for a month this season and then a few weeks next year to smooth things out. IN the end, he would have spent less than a year in AA, less than 3 months in AAA, all of which is reasonable.
