I'm getting sick of not calling up prospects or calling up prospects but not having them play.
What I'd do:
Either play Clase and Bliss or freaking send them back down.
If the latter call up Ford and Locklear. There's NO reason not to give these guys a chance. M's are getting bottom of the league production from both C and DH.
Promote Lazaro Montes to Everett. Nuff said. Maybe even AAA.
Shop Alberto Rodriguez (currently in AA) and Emerson Hancock for a bat. I like Hancock but if Woo is the real deal then they can be flexible. This is a year where the division is winnable.

I believe they sent Clase back down a couple of days ago.

Youre right.
Back to Montes, I'd send the dude to Everett that way he's close to Seattle and call him up just like they did with Julio. I'll eat my words if I'm wrong but I think he's a top 10 prospect right now.
Cole Young and Harry Ford could be called up soon too. My guess for next call up is Locklear though just because he's in AAA. I don't know if every guy is going to AAA, some AA players might get the call. Vosler at 3rd base not a young guy but having a good season in AAA.

The Montes deal is he's coming up with everyone at Modesto.
They want to bring up a bunch together from what I read, from
minors to majors.

Love to see the youngsters come up and do well.

Gives me great hope for the future. Better to risk the future on the young than to settle for mediocrity with the 55 and post-35 group.

Sounds like that'd be an interesting read. Where's it at?
Dipoto was quoted as saying it and it was somewhere in this site (sorry)
I read a lot so this the best I can do.
