Which prospects get the call in September?

Other than Guerrero Jr. there is a strong list of players that would deserve to get a call-up when the roster expands in the final month of the regular season. The team gets nine call-ups so they will have to be selective with their options.

To give you an idea of who the team brought up last season Teoscar Hernandez, Richard Urena, Luke Maile, Michael Saunders, Carlos Ramirez, Luis Santos and Chris Rowley were brought up. This year’s group could be a much younger crop then it year’s past.

It will likely start with Danny Jansen in triple-A Buffalo who many expect to be the catcher of the future when it comes time to move on from Russell MartinDalton Pompey and Anthony Alford could see action before September with the injury to Kevin Pillar.

In the infield, Urena would be the likely candidate to see some playing time and he’ll be an intriguing player considering the struggles the middle infield has had this season.

Sean Reid-Foley, Conor Fisk, Thomas Pannone and Jose Fernandez would be in consideration with the rotation expected to be short at least Happ and Estrada then there’s the possibility of more players in the bullpen that could be moved out.

Down in double-A Bo Bichette, and Cavan Biggio continue to make waves but that doesn’t guarantee that either would get promoted but they will make the decision interesting when the time comes.
