I’m wrapping up a weekend move and returning to a normal schedule. All the minor league games were rained out yesterday so there’s nothing to report in that regard.
With the addition of Miguel Batista and optioning of Fernando Salas over the weekend, I was left wondering two things: 1) Will a position player or a pitcher be the first minor leaguer called up and 2) who will that player be?
I’m going with a pitcher and Lance Lynn which basically amounts to me betting on a starter going down with an injury. Other likely candidates might be Eduardo Sanchez, Fernando Salas, Matt Carpenter, Tony Cruz or Bryan Anderson. Anyone I’m missing? Care to make your own first up prediction?
