A.J. Cole is not in triple A. He spent half of this past year getting scorched at High A Stockton ntil he was sent back to low A, where he routinely dominates.
I also don't see what is so great about an injury-prone, lead-footed corner outfielder who is coming off a down year... who only has 1 year left on his contract. How is that better than a .400 OBP catcher who crushes righties, takes better care of his body, is cheaper, and is under control through 2015?
