OK. So, I want to add my best prospect to the 40-man roster and promote him to the ML team for the stretch run (when rosters expand).
By doing this, what is the actual harm being done? I do not want to demote him after the season and potentially suffer a ratings decline, so he will be staying up for at least the next 6 seasons, I hope.
Have I lost a year at minimum price? Have I lost a year of minor league growth? He will be eligible for the rule 5 draft next year anyway... I am just hoping to find out why this move is so much worse than waiting one more season and adding him after the first 23 games of the year ;-)
Thanks for the advice/ JRNY.
