Shealy- a viable option next year?

It's interesting to see Shealy making the most of his opportunity. With 2 HRs today and 4 in all since his call-up less than 2 weeks ago, he has already surpassed Gload's season total (which only serves to irritate me more, as we see the actual proof that we utterly wasted a season's worth of ABs starting Gload at first base this season). Shealy is also hitting .370 and slugging .815.

While I'm sure we're all in agreement that this hot stretch won't last forever, it does give me pause re. our first base situation for next year and makes me wonder if it does the same thing for Dayton Moore. Is Shealy still regarded by the Royals as a prospect and can he possibly help the big club next year? If Moore is not impressed yet, what would it take for him to reconsider Shealy for next year's KC roster? I'm thinking he'd have to continue tearing the cover off the ball for the balance of the season, then basically do the same in Spring Training to even have a shot. Even then, there is still ol' Ross to compete with, plus Butler, and Ka'aihue...thoughts?
