2021 MiLB call up watch thread

Message added by tonycpsu,

This thread is for discussion of confirmed and/or imminent call-ups.  If you've seen news that someone has been called up, or informed speculation from reputable sources that someone may be on their way to the show soon, feel free to share these items with the community here.  Do not ask "who's going to be called up next?" -- that's what the thread is for, so asking is superfluous.  Also, do not use this thread for deep dives into specific minor league players -- that's what their MiLB outlook threads are for.

Giants calling up RHP Gregory Santos

 

He's certainly not a huge name but Eric Longenhagen of Fangraphs put Santos at #98 on his top 100 list

Just made his MLB Debut tonight and looked filthy striking out 2 in a scoreless inning. He's a name to watch for those looking for another RP who can provide elite K's and perhaps work himself into being a steady source of Holds this year.

  • Luis Patino will make his Rays debut in Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Patino has been added to the team's taxi squad and will reportedly be activated to make his Rays debut in tandem with scheduled starter Josh Fleming during the team's series finale against the Blue Jays on Sunday. The hard-throwing 21-year-old righty made 11 appearances (one start) with the Padres last season. Given his tremendous strikeout upside, he's worth a speculative roster spot for fantasy managers in deeper mixed leagues.

García will be recalled from the alternate training site to make his season debut. Rated as the Yanks' No. 3 prospect by MLB Pipeline, García has been working on his slider command and will be looking for opportunities to incorporate it against the Orioles.

Should be added this is just for a spot start.  Not up for good at this point.

According to MLB.com's Anthony DiComo, the Mets have instructed OF prospect Khalil Lee to be ready for a potential callup.

Lee could be poised to make his major league debut this weekend against the Diamondbacks after the Mets had to place Brandon Nimmo (finger) on the injured list Wednesday. Lee, 22, was acquired from the Royals in February as part of the three-team Andrew Benintendi trade. He slashed .264/.363/.372 with eight home runs and a whopping 53 stolen bases over 129 minor league games in 2019.

PURE SPECULATION POST

Josiah Gray had been listed as OKC's opening night starter, but the OKC website is now showing TBD. Kinda odd!

Dodgers need a starter for this Saturday. They could (and most likely will) go with the bullpen game, and Roberts said just this past week that it's not yet Josiah Gray's time, but managers lie or change their minds all the time. 

Something to monitor.

Twins placed OF Byron Buxton on the 10-day injured list with a grade two hip strain.

Ugh. This isn't completely unexpected news, but there had been some hope that the oft-injured outfielder would be able to avoid a trip to the injured list. He has been an absolute monster when on the field this season -- slashing .370/.408/.772 with nine homers, 19 runs scored, 17 RBI and five swipes in 24 games -- but his ability to stay on the field has always been an issue. Trevor Larnach was recalled in a corresponding move and should see fairly regular playing time while Buxton is sidelined.

 

 

Twins recalled OF Trevor Larnach from Triple-A St. Paul

The 24-year-old outfielder has yet to play a game in the big leagues. He slashed .309/.384/.458 with 13 long balls and 66 RBI across 127 games between High-A Fort Myers and Double-A Pensacola during the 2019 season. In three games with Triple-A St. Paul to begin the 2021 season, he was 3-for-13 (.231) with a pair of homers -- though he also struck out eight times. He could see fairly regular playing time while Buxton is sidelined, making him a somewhat worthwhile addition in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues.

According to Yahoo Sports, Pearson is likely to start Sunday. If it is indeed true. This is big news!

Nate Pearson is likely to start on Sunday against the Astros.

Advice: Pearson is one of the top pitching prospects in the Toronto system -- and one of the best in baseball -- but got off to a late start to the year because of a groin injury. The right-hander struck out eight in 3 2/3 innings in his start for Triple-A Buffalo, and now will get to show off that swing-and-miss stuff at the highest level. There's some risk with Pearson, but there's an awful lot of reward that comes with it.

Yup it's been confirmed from CBS too. 

"Pearson will likely start Sunday's game against the Astros, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

Pearson dealt with a groin injury to begin the regular season but pitched for Triple-A Buffalo to begin the minor-league campaign. In his first start for the team, he allowed one run on four hits while striking out eight in 3.2 innings. Left-hander Anthony Kay should be available out of the bullpen with Pearson starting Sunday. However, it's not yet clear whether Pearson will remain in the major-league rotation after Sunday's start."

Josiah Gray was scratched from his start tonight.  
 

Speculation was that Buehler’s blisters are back but 4K thru 2 IP with a solo shot given up to Haniger suggest he’s okay.  Guess we have to wait and see until tomorrow.
