Probably the best candidate for promotion right now.
I think they see him as a starter and want him to get some more Double A innings. He could be someone they look to if Garcia goes down again. He has good stuff. Dennis Martinez was his High A ball coach and was very high on him. I was hoping he would get a look as lefty specialist too, because Choate didn't impress me and Scrabble has inconsistent success.
I think they were looking harder at Tyler Lyons in spring training for the specialist role, but in the end opted for the two knowns. Seigrist could be an interesting late call up that could help down the stretch. He could be one of those guys that you could leave in against righties too.
