Any 2Bs coming up in Sept that may be worth picking up

Postby McKay » Thu Aug 12, 2004 6:45 pm

My team needs some power at 2B. Trading deadline is approaching.
Just wondering if anyone knows of any 2B that may be called up in September, that has some power and should get playing time?

Thanks for helping!!!

I wouldn't count on much production from Weeks as he's hitting only .257 in AA. Chris Burke 2B for the Astros could be called up. I don't really see any 2B that could help a fantasy team this year though.

I'm pretty sure Clint Barmes is a SS, The Minor League Guru(Hybrid) probably know for sure.

Well, the top 2b in the minors are Alberto Callaspo, Jayson Nix, Robinson Cano, Josh Barfield, Ruben Gotay, Donald Murphy, Victor Diaz, and Fernando Cortez.

Now, clearly Diaz has someone ahead of him in Reyes. Callaspo is sitting behind Adam Kennedy, so he's out. Jayson Nix is hitting .213 this year - even Colorado doesn't need a 2b that badly. Barfield is stuck behind Loretta for the time being. Cortez doesn't have the ability to help you while he's in his prime, really, though he will one day be an everyday player. Let's call these guys "probably nots."

Ruben Gotay is competing with Donnie Murphy, but the Royals really have no one blocking him. His numbers at double-a have been good enough to get called to triple-a, but not the majors. And Murphy is hitting under .250, so he's not getting called up. But lets call Gotay a "maybe."

Now, Robinson Cano is hitting pretty well at triple-A Columbus. He's hitting .294 with little power and no speed, but he's getting on base. And he walks at a pretty good rate. And the Yankees could use him, even if he's just coming off the bench. I think that the Yankees could call him up - I would if I were them. He appears ready - if nothing else, he'll be adequate right now and they can audition him to see if they need to go out and buy Kent next year. Cano is your best bet, in my opinion. Gotay is iffy.

Did I miss anybody?

Not sure where you heard that, maybe you are referring to last year. But the Brewers GM has stated Weeks will not be called up in September and will be attending the AFL.

BTW Callaspo has spent the whole year playing SS, so who knows what future plans the Angels hold for him.

Gotay has already been called up, he's already played 8 games ;-)
