I don't think intent would manifest itself like that any of that would have been washed away with a single large callup.

If not for any logisitical reason, I'd take it to mean separate messages to the two groups. To the first group, high expectations. They were the easy callups, but there's a pressure to perform that comes along with that.

To the second group, there's lower expectations and management needed more time to figure out whether they should go or not. They need to put on a show to make the team this year.

Or maybe it was done in two groups so it would be unneccessarily read into, each individual player morphing it into to whatever they're inclined to think.
