"RJ had a meeting the other day with the guys in Triple-A, and there's a reason why someone like [Stefan] Crichton comes back," Showalter said. "They go down there and they do real well. He spent one day going down, pitched the day he got there and pitched two or three shutout innings and has done it again and again. They control it, really, and guys sitting down there with 5.00, 6.00 and 7.00 ERAs, it's hard to have a lot of confidence about bringing them back. They need to pitch well at that level."
