With Profar/Puig/Cole/Myers just called up who else is due to make a big splash for the summer months?

Let the speculating begin.

George Springer comes to mind. OF prospect for the Astros currently in AA. I don't know if a team usually promotes from AA to the majors, but with the Astros being so bad why not.
he is killing it in AA.

.293/.387/.585/.973/ 18 HR, 19 SB.


I don't know if the Reds would call up OF prospect Billy Hamilton this season. but if they do he could rack up a lot of steals.

http://www.thebaseballcube.com/players/ ... Hamilton-1

2012 in A+ he had 104 SB and then in AA he had 51 SB.
this season so far in AAA he has 43 SB.
although this season his AVG/OBP aren't that good. .252 AVG/ .313 OBP. maybe something more likely in September.

Hamilton started the year hitting about 160 after the first month. He has been on fire since. I think he could get called up when the next cincy of gets hurt.
