Putting this question out there for those of us to ponder.  Keston Hiura hit home runs 9 and 10 last night and drove in 4 more.  He is hitting .327 and has 22 RBI in less than 30 games.  Everyone knows where I am going here - but at what point does he earn a call up??  With Moose labeled as the everyday 2B, that does complicate things.  However, Travis Shaw continues to hit miserably at a .177 clip and Moose is a good 3B. A question for us baseball experts to answer.

I think Shaw probably gets the rest of the month before any move is made. At some point if him and Aguilar don't pick it up something WILL have to happen.

At least Aguilar can be platooned as things are. Hiura up, Moustakas to third is a tailor-made situation for the club.

We need to pump the brakes on Hiura a bit.  Pacific Coast League stats are always inflated.  I don't think he should come up until September.  The one stat I see that tells me he needs more seasoning is a 5% walk rate and a strike out rate of 30%.  Major league pitchers aren't going to throw him strikes if he is going to swing at everything.  Just for comparison, Orlando Arcia had a slash line of .307/.347/.453 in the Southern league as a 20 year old.  Hiura's slash line in the same league last year was ..272/.339/.416.  Hiura is going to be a good hitter, but I think he still needs more time down in San Antonio.

Barring an injury or 2, Hiura won't be in the bigs until the expanded roster, if then.

There are a couple guys that have MLB experience and another prospect ahead of him.

He is not ready.

Or he could be traded later this season.

Hypothetically, if the Brewers called up Huira, plugged him in at 2nd base, and then moved Moose to 3rd. Is it a guarantee that he'd outhit Shaw over the course of the season?

He may never earn a Gold Glove for his defense, but I have a strong hunch Keston Hiura has a batting title or two in him before his MLB playing days are finished.

Appears to me that much of the analysis on Hiura was not all that accurate.
