Iannetta just got called up.

Chris Iannetta-C-Rockies Aug. 26 - 1:24 am et


Rockies purchased the contract of catcher Chris Iannetta from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

We're not sure what the hurry was. Yorvit Torrealba continues to play very well and should enter 2007 as the Rockies' starting catcher. Iannetta is the future behind the plate for the club, but he doesn't deserve to start over Torrealba right now, even if he was hitting .336/.433/.567 in 307 at-bats between Double- and Triple-A this year. Two-catcher NL-only leaguers could pick him up and see what happens.

The Angels are expected to call Jeff Mathis back up.

Dustin Pedroia could be a good one too...not useful this season, but I'd love to have him in '07. ;-D

Both Millers could be sleepers next year since they appear to be returning to their once elite status. I think Greg could help the Dodgers right now.


Greg still has a ways to come back, his control has been god awful this year and that's just pitching in relief.

Felix Pie-OF- Cubs Aug. 26 - 9:39 am et


According to the Chicago Sun Times, "all signs point to" Felix Pie making his debut next week.

Pie has recovered from a prolonged slump and is hitting .282 with 13 homers and 55 RBI at Triple-A. There's a chance he could take over for Juan Pierre in center field as soon as next spring.

I know Greg Miller personally and know his family really well (our grandparents are best friends). Last I heard (a couple weeks ago from his grandmother) was that he is hurting once again. It's in the same spot as all of his other problems.

The reason for his control issues is they totally changed his mechanics to try and fix his arm problems. They have him pitching 3/4 to sidearm now instead of over the top and he hasn't totally found his release point. The fact that he has kept his ERA low and still striking people out is a good sign IMO if he is still learning to pitch with a new delivery.

September callups with immediate impact

Postby Bozo » Sun Aug 27, 2006 12:28 pm

I know there was a previous post regarding September callups auditioning for 2007 jobs but I'm looking for callups that have a chance to contribute for this year. Specifically AL callups that might get a fair amount of playing time and help gain me some points in the final month. One player I'm keeping an eye on is Hayden Penn, it sounds like he'll be thrown in to the O's rotation. Any hitters out there that might help me (or even someone who can steal the odd base?)
