I don't think they're officially on the roster til tomorrow if I'm reading right.

Miggy Ro is up and in the lineup tonight. They absolutely could’ve gotta Sanchez (and Lewin) in the lineup tonight if they wanted to. 

I just don’t understand how anyone with a prominent baseball role in 2020 could choose Logan Forsythe over Lewin Diaz right now.

I'm in agreement on that. Thought it was ridiculous they sent Lewin back down especially when he had the best at bats in the Atlanta series.

Hopefully he comes back this weekend but I'm doubtful.

Hate to harp on them modrine stats, but Forsythe has an above-average xwOBA:

Has a 16% barrel rate too (league average is 4.5%). He's just hitting where they're at, looks like. Hopefully, that'll balance out, but more hopefully, he'll be a nifty bench bat and all the Boppers will take his playing time.

ok I’m gonna give them the benefit of the doubt and say Sanchez is not staring cause he hasn’t had a chance to review tape or they want him to Take in the game a bit before coming to the plate in an eventual pinch hit role. But otherwise there’s no excuse to have Brinson in over Sanchez, and Not bringing up Diaz over forsythe.
 

@Photo-Realistic Billy regardless of your xwOBA reference, Lewin is better all around (Forsythe is a borderline negative war player, he’s not a starter even on this team) and provides more to the mentality of the team. And he’s already been up and drove in a couple of runs, I don’t know why he’s not up with the big team. Makes no sense to me.
