He's still pretty young, so I guess he could get there at some point, but he's not doing anything for the Whale to earn himself a callup right now. Bickel has and so has Erixon.
I've watched 5-7 Whale games this season. From what I saw, I thought Valentenko was much, much better than Bickel. Maybe the rest of the season has gone much differently?

But then again, I thought in the preseason, Bickel was awful, also. Talk about slow...
