Alyson Footer reported earlier today via Twitter that Brian Esposito was optioned back to Oklahoma City and David Carpenter was promoted to the Astros. This news comes on the heels of a quote from Fred Nelson via a Zachary Levine article where Nelson states that Carpenter has work to do before he is major league ready. I'm sure that Nelson's comments breaking at the same time as Carpenter being promoted is pure coincidence, but it is ironic to say the least. If anything else it may show that this organization is not for sure what they want to do right now. Our director of Player development says a guy is not ready for the majors, and then he is promoted shortly after. Here is to wishing David Carpenter the best of luck.
