The Anthony Rizzo watch is now over..... at least for now. Chase Utley is back and Ryan Howard can't be far behind. We have ten hitters for your review in this week's Farm Report. With the exception of super-prospect Brett Jackson, all have spent time in the majors this season. Several on our list are rehabbing injury and others may be headed toward the dreaded AAAA classification.
Who is next? As we move towards the midway point of the 2012 season, often times call-ups are a far better option that hitting that has been sitting on your waiver wire off and on all season. Here are half a dozen players worthy of keeping an eye on.
Yesterday we brought you some pitching options, today we take a closer look at some hitters that should be on your radar. Our segment focuses on those players that were recently sent down to the minors and/or are expected to be called up soon.
Two weeks from the September 40-man expansion so your focus needs to narrow to the minor league elite. It’s not as much who will get an opportunity as most will be at the show at call-up time on September 1st. A few have already had a taste and others are rehabbing from injury. Be careful to evaluate playing time if you remain in a pennant race of your own.
