Two days ago the Buffalo Bisons rotation was crowded with arms: Harvey, Familia, Hefner, Schwinden, and Olson. Two days ago the B-Mets rotation was burgeoning with talented arms: McHugh, Wheeler, Germen, Gorski, Peavey, Cohoon, and now, Mejia.
Well two days later the B-Mets rotation is still over-loaded, and the Buffalo rotation is thinned after being raided for arms by the big league club and suddenly looks like this: Harvey, Familia, Olson, and Owen. With 23 games in the next 24 days, the Bisons are going to need some fortification to the rotation.
The best candidate of the bunch to be called up from Binghamton is RHP Collin McHugh who has done everything he needs to do at the AA level, and now needs the challenge he would get on the top rung of the ladder.
His numbers this year are 4-2 with a 2.05 ERA, his AA totals: 24 starts, 12-4 with a 2.60 ERA.
Everyone wants to know if McHugh is really a prospect, if he can succeed as a major league pitcher? Well we are never going to find out if he is left to languish in AA. Let’s give him a chance to get some big boys out! Call him up!
