With seven days remaining in the regular season, it’s hard to turn on a baseball game without getting a look at one or two prospects. And seeing as how there will not be any more prospects promoted to the big leagues this season, it’s time to review every team’s top September call-up.
To determine the player(s) from each team to feature, I looked at prospects promoted on or after Sept. 1. Furthermore, it was also important to consider whether they still have “rookie” status (fewer than 130 at-bats or 50 innings pitched). So, while Matt LaPorta was once again a September call-up, his prospect expiration date has come and gone.
While some of these prospects have the potential to make an impact in the major leagues as early as next season, a majority are in the midst of a trial period in which the organization attempts to determine what exactly it has on its hands.
Here are updated grades for each team’s top September call-ups.
