The Immature Nolan Arenado

General manager Dan O'Dowd indicated that Arenado will likely finish the season with Double-A Tulsa rather than be promoted to the Rockies, the Denver Post's Patrick Saunders reports. He's hitting .293/.349/.428 at Tulsa. Spin: Even though 2012 will probably go down as a lost season for the Rockies, there's no need for the team to rush Arenado to the big leagues with Jordan Pacheco batting over .300. Arenado could reach the majors as a September call-up, but don't expect him to be immediately inserted into the lineup upon his arrival. O'Dowd referred to Arenado's maturity as a reason for keeping him down. "Arenado's maturity level has not yet reached his talent level," O'Dowd said. Thu, Jun 28


Just saw this a little bit ago. Makes me wonder what exactly they mean by "maturity level." That being said. This is probably the best thing for him. Might as well let him grow in the minors so he doesn't flop in his first stint in the bigs.
