Not really. Palmieri missed the cut in camp last year, and found his way up in the last half of the season. Smith-Pelly missed the cut in his first year, and secured a spot in his second shot. We don't have spots open. He may be close enough to consider a spot, but lose out for a season of polishing. Bear in mind, we may not even get to make that choice since he's already said that he'd prefer to finish out his contract with Rogle. The entire reason why we're asking him to put those plans on hold is that he was one of the best prospects at camp, after Holland and competing with Etem for second best.
