He has a 1.000+ OPS at AAA although it wouldn't hurt for him to walk or get an XBH a little more often.
I am also watching Jarrod Parker since I have him in a deep dynasty and could use another SP'er down the stretch. But I'm not expecting much.
Mous and Ackley are probably the two most likely potential above avg callups after Montero and Jennings.
Wouldn't count on Parker. He is really struggling with his command + throwing his breaking stuff. Many now treat TJ surgery like a minor bump in the road but sometimes it still can take players awhile longer to bounce back.
In addition to the other 4 listed guys, we could see Lawrie getting the call at some point. If Kila continues to really struggle, the Royals just might give Hosmer a chance this season. Jenrry Mejia, Andrew Oliver and Mike Montgomery could force their way into their respected team's rotations. Looking deeper, super prospects Mike Trout, Martin Perez and Jaff Decker could make an appearance.
I think someone like Simon Castro is a name being overlooked. Good stuff and pitching in SD can't hurt. Also, Tanner Scheppers if he can get back on track could make an impact on teams looking for MR numbers and holds.
