Amaya's long-term development should supersede one or two extra wins.   

*Is he best served catching 4 games a week at Iowa, and DHing a 5th?  Build some repetitions?  Play in-and-out of some slumps?
*Or better developed starting twice a week for the Cubs?  Prioritize defense, learning the pitchers and opposing hitters.  Perhaps at the expense of attention to developing his hitting? 

He's only got 73 AB in the minors.  And over the last four years, the two dozen games he's caught this spring are his first?  I understand Hoyer wanting to be a little patient and letting him stack some games away from the pressure?
