Big day for top prospects getting called up; Both Harper & Trout called up for tomorrow!!
Is there some kind of inside knowledge that the Super 2 cutoff has been hit? Obviously no, but it's a bit curious that these both happen at the same time, especially with no reason for the Natinals to call up Harper.
It's not related to Super2 at all since that cutoff is in June. Additionally trout has service time from last year.
what it does mean for Harper is that they waited long enough to delay his FA by one year which is huge. Even if that year is really expensive it's awesome to have one additional year of a potential stud on your team.
The Nats do have a reason to call up Harper. Their offense is awful and zim and Morse are injured.
