    I'll honestly only believe this if McTaggart or Kaplan tweet this

    Nice! I'd imagine it's either Worth or Kemp that heads back to Fresno.

    I'd guess Kemp. His value is pretty much gone now besides being a pinch runner.

    If true I like it. Marwin has been good at 1b so I would like to see him take some dh ABs from Gattis.

    Kemp would be the obvious choice to go down. Marwin will continue to play as he's been on fire of late. I'd guess we'll see him more in LF, 3B, and DH.

    How good is he? Does he have star potential?

    The guy who's putting up an ~.875 OPS since May 1?

    Great plan.
