Ames notched the 21st slot on Baseball America's list, with BA saying he should be ready as a 7th or 8th inning setup man in the big leagues as soon as this year. The 25-year-old reliever has pitched to a 3.67 ERA in 34 1/3 innings at Triple-A this year, his first season at that level. He has, however, seen his strikeout rate decline and walk rate go up this season, as compared to the stellar marks he put up in the lower minor league levels. Wall checked in one spot ahead of Ames among Dodgers prospects before the season, but has struggled in 2013. He was shellacked (14 earned runs in 7 innings) during a call-up and has a 5.60 ERA in 27 1/3 Triple-A innings. The tall righty is noted by BA as possessing late-game stuff, but has still yet to master his command.

Mike Redmond needs to get him called up so that the clock on his baseball pension starts ticking!

On the Marlins site (sorry, no link) there is speculation that he will be up before September. September for sure, with the expanded rosters. It has been postulated that he will be used as a 7th-8th inning reliever, but is being groomed as a closer.
