Worse than that, he might. That would actually prove we arent growing hitters even more so as he CLEARLY is not ready for the majors.
Unless I am mistaken (and I might be) they were not revocable waivers. If someone had claimed him I think we would have lost him (anyone?). That would have been a bit of a disaster, but given his terrible hitting for almost all of his career in the majors (he really only has 2 months that he has hit the ball well in 3+ seasons), there probably wasnt much of a chance that anyone was going to take him.
Hopefully they leave him, Haseley, Maton, Moniak and maybe even Bohm in AAA for the rest of the year (or at least until September). All of these guys need success and it seems pretty clear that none of them are ready for the majors really. Even Bohm was really just "hot" last year over a short season and it was optimistic that he would duplicate a season in the majors that he really never approached in the minors. He needed time in AAA, now he needs confidence and to work on consistency in the field.
Kingery, Maton, Moniak and Haseley just simply are not major league players. They may be someday, but frankly the clock is running on all of them and SO FAR things are not promising. None of them are showing very much except for occasional hot streaks like Maton had when he first got called up. Moniak is almost certainly a AAAA player as he has almost no skills that make him good enough to play in the majors (questionable CF defense, above average speed, average at best hit tool and no power does not really add up to playing the majors).
Frankly, we need to be sellers just to get some better prospects. The ones we have are kinda terrible.
Edit: Believe or not, I am widely regarded as an optimist I just re-read this and, well, sadly, these are my opinions on our young-ish hitters
