    It's time to take a look at guys who are either stuck in the minor leagues behind better talent at the big league level, or guys who even their managers don't know who they are.

    LF Adam Milligan (AAA Gwinnett Braves)

    Milligan is crushing International League pitching and sports a robust 1.010 OPS in AAA. He has Plus power and Plus, Plus defense. Coco Crisp currently holds down LF for the Braves so his progress seems blocked at the moment. He adds better defense though, so it's possible he may see some time. Only Timpegoose can answer what his status is...

    Verdict? Trade Him

    SP Kyle McPherson (AAA Norfolk Tides)

    McPherson was traded to the Orioles from the Pirates in one of the first Dugout Trades. ryalaman is getting very good production currently out of his rotation, even the 5th spot. At 26 years old all of McPherson's ratings are maxed. He needs to be playing in the show.

    Verdict? Trade Him

    1B Matt Adams (AAA Memphis Redbirds)

    I'm not even sure Darkwing is even playing the game. His depth in the big leagues is strange, especially considering his starting Catcher is injured and there is no backup on the Active Roster. The good news for the Cardinals is that he has a solid (although underperforming) 1B in Matt Canha. Adams has nearly 1000 AAA at bats and continues to get better.

    Verdict? Trade him

    SP Eli Echarry (AAA Durham Bulls)

    Eli is a big arm and has dominated AAA the last two seasons. He is only 21, but he needs to play now. He throws 97-99, all his pitches are nearly maxed as is his control. OzoneAz needs to make a decision here.

    Verdict? Play him!

    Something tells me Zunino would have been on this list had he not gotten a recent call up

    Milligan kinda came out of nowhere this year. As long as Marte continues to produce, Milligan will probably be the 4th outfielder next year, and Marte will probably start in LF.

    McPherson may come up this sim. Dan Klein has been horrible in the pen, and either he or Jacob Pettit will get the call. The big positive or McPherson is that he's already on the 40 man. Of course, if someone else thinks they could use a solid innings eater who's been damn good in AAA this year...
