Future call-ups

Snelling is already called up


Chris Snelling made his first start in the majors since the 2002 season and went 0-for-2 with two walks tonight.
He was also caught stealing second base. It took Snelling four days to get a start for the Mariners, so he probably isn't going to play much until a current outfielder gets injured or traded. If a regular job were to open up for Snelling, he'd be worth a claim in AL-only leagues despite the serious injury history.

Felix Hernandez will have an even bigger impact...
Jeff Keppinger if he comes back from the broken leg..

Any insights?

There will be many. Check the Minor League forum for names but if you haven't heard of Delmon Young before, expect him up shortly. He's going to make Rickie Weeks look like Tony Womack without the speed.

young has stole more bases than he has hit hrs in AA. hes a 30/30 player easily...
i think he should have a vlad like evolution. he should steal plenty in his first few years and then once his body fills out revert back to just slugging away.. needless to say the kid is already big...

Weeks may very well have a better career than Young and will almost certainly be more valuable from a fantasy standpoint as long as he stays at 2B. Young is a great talent but weeks will be something special with the bat speed he generates. Young also most likely will not be playing in tampa full time until next year.

Scott Baker is a very, very polished young pitcher that could post a 4.00 ERA down the stretch for the Twins, picking up wins on a good club. He's ready for the show now, which has led to rumors that the Twins will move either Lohse or Mays for offense, and Baker will take the open spot in the rotation. He was the Twins' second round pick out of Oaklahoma State in 2003. Shot through three levels of the Twins' farm system last season and spent all of this year in Triple-A posting the following line:

15 GS, 3.18 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, 87.2 IP, 75 K, 23 BB, 81 H

He doesn't have ace upside, but will be a nice No. 2-3 starter.

Uh oh! Attention keeper leaguers.......(from RotoWorld).....

If Eddie Guardado is traded this weekend, Felix Hernandez will likely get called up to join the Mariners pitching staff.

Get your waiver claims ready!!!

Last i heard, Cappellan was moved to the bullpen, and has been thriving there. Since being traded to the Brewerds, he has struggled as a SP.
