Another week without a "huge" prospect call up, but we did get some players that may contribute. On the pitching side, St.Louis brought up John Gast, the Yankees called on one time elite prospect Dellin Betances and Tampa bypassed (for now) a pair of stud starting pitching prospects for Alex Torres. As for hitting, Detroit is giving power hitting Avisail Garcia a look, while the Yankees tabbed David Adams as the Chris Nelson experiment was short lived. More quality help awaits on the farm and we continue to take a look at the possibilities both in the field and on the mound, across each division. We continue with a look at "Who's Next", with the American League's Central Division.
No super prospects got the call this week to the Majors. Miami middle infielder Derek Dietrich was summoned by the Marlins. The former second round pick was acquired from Tampa Bay for shortstop Yunel Escobar. Phillies pitching prospect Tyler Cloyd was called up for a spot start, where he tossed two-hit ball into the seventh against Arizona, but was sent back down as Philadelphia doesn't need a fifth starter for another ten days. More quality help awaits on the farm and we continue to take a look at the possibilities both in the field and on the mound, across each division. We continue with a look at "Who's Next", moving over to the American League and the Eastern Division.
This week we saw the arrival of Cards pitching prospect Carlos Martinez , while John Pettibone looks like he may stick for awhile in the Phillies rotation. Christian Yelich was bypassed when Giancarlo Stanton went down, but the Marlins are looking wise with the call-up of Marcell Ozuna. Nolan Arenado made his much anticipated debut in Colorado, while another, Anthony Rendon was sent back down with the return of Ryan Zimmerman in Washington.
Are you tired of looking at the same players week in and week out on the waiver wire? Quality help awaits on the farm and we are going to take a look at the possibilities both in the field and on the mound, across each division. We continue with a look at "Who's Next" in the National League's Central Division.
With the time period necessary to ensure an extra year of control now past, teams will be tapping into top minor league talent with greater frequency. Quality help awaits on the farm and we are going to take a look at the possibilities both in the field and on the mound, across each division. We begin with a look at "Who's Next" in the National League's Eastern Division.
If you're like me, you are already tired of looking at the same guys available on waivers across every league. Time for the stud prospects to start making their way up to "The Show"! Many of us have a limited Minor League roster as part of our fantasy teams, but most of the talent we will see come across our lineups this season weren't taken in the two or three rounds that were filled following every one's draft or auction. Each week we will profile who is "next", either on the verge of getting the call or those to track now so you will be ready when the time comes.
Who are the top prospects in the National League West? Over the past month, we have brought you the top prospects from each team, in our final installment we take a look at the Western Division of the NL. We have already seen a slew of prospects, names like Tyler Skaggs, Josh Rutledge, Casey Kelly and Conor Gillaspie have already made their mark. With rosters now expanding to 40, lets take a look at who may contribute down the stretch.
We have seen plenty off young talent brought to the show from the National League Central, Anthony Rizzo and Brett Jackson by the Cubs, Matt Adams in St.Louis, the Pirates Sterling Marte, Jean Segura in Milwaukee and Matt Dominguez with a look in Houston, just to name a few. Some of baseball's top young prospects on the brink, remain in the NL central and many are of the impact variety.
Some of the top young talent in all of major league baseball is among farm systems in the American League West. We have already seen Mike Trout take MLB by storm from the Angels system, with Texas preparing to call up phenom Jurickson Profar. Many thought Danny Hultzen would get the call in Seattle, but it appears the Mariners are going to wait until 2013. Oakland recently called up flame throwing Dan Straily and believe they have their catcher of the future in Derek Norris.
As we head into mid-August, clubs continue to look for help from their farm systems. Teams looking for a spark either on the field, or added excitement to drive the box office.. We can expect a dozen or more players called up on the first of September with normal roster expansion, but what help could be on the way sooner? We take a look at possibilities with each franchise, continuing now with the American League Central.
