    Isn't PawSox in the playoff? Pawsox will lose players to the Red Sox with call up.

    They like to promote certain players right at the end of the year just to get their feet warm.

    I know that, but don't they typically do so with more than three games left? Will Barnes pitch in the playoffs? Seems like a tough call up for Barnes not having any real time to adjust to AAA, then being thrown into their high pressure situation.

    Barnes has had an extremely overlooked season. Look for another "breakout" next season.

    Admittedly I know significantly less about our minor league system than a lot of you, it just seems a bit odd to me. Would have expected them make the move a week or two ago so he could get at least 2+ starts in the regular season before playoffs.

    Yes, the playoffs are the explanation. Sox believe that the playoff atmosphere really helps mature players. While it's true that they also like to do late promotions as -Lav- said, that really doesn't make sense going into the long weekend that ends their season. It might if he were a position player with a chance to get some PA but not for a SP with just one shot to pitch.
