Eric Young Jr. Called up?

Postby nate128 » Sun Apr 25, 2010 12:17 pm

Eric Young Jr. "tweeted" early Sunday morning that he has been promoted back to the major leagues.
The Rockies haven't announced the move, or a corresponding move of someone off the 25-man roster, so it's not official yet. Melvin Mora has seen more playing time lately with Clint Barmes struggling at the plate. Perhaps the Rockies feel it's time to see if Young can hack it at the major league level.

Its true... from CBS:
"Eric O. Young, 2B COL
News: 2B/OF Eric O. Young was called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Sunday. He took the roster spot vacated by Brad Hawpe (quad), who was placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Analysis: The Rockies have great depth in their outfield, so Hawpe's injury opens up playing time for Seth Smith and Ryan Spilborghs, as well as Young. While this looks like a golden opportunity for the Rockies prospect, more likely, he will fill in occasionally rather than find regular playing time. For now, roster him only in deeper NL-only leagues."

He wasn't hitting that well in the minors.

his has started his first 4 games he has gotten a hit in every one batting .500 5-10 4 runs 3 rbis and 2 stolen bases .

in the minors he has stolen bases 2006- 87 stolen bases 2007-73 sb. 2008-48sb
2009-58 stolen bases so he can need some stolenbases and runs.i think he may stick around
