There's always the possibility that he does. I'd bet that he probably starts the season with Wilkes-Barrie-Scranton, but I can see Bjorkqvist being a call up guy.

@pharrow is going to be happy.

In all honesty, I'm surprised they signed him this soon his rights don't expire until next season.

How so? Worst case he hits the slide and it all matters not till next year.

He will start in WBS. He's coming off shoulder surgery so expect a slow start from him. But the guys got game.

That I am. Glad to see him signed. It's always risky to let a prospect play 4 years. They only need wait a few months and they are a free agent. You want them signed by the end of the third year. No sense risking it.
