With the suspension of Manny Ramirez and a few guys hitting the DL, there have been a few minor call ups from the minors throughout the majors.

There are more than a few guys you might want to add to your watch list to see their performance and possible fantasy value.

Send Downs

Vinnie Chulk: Looked pretty solid for a little bit. 3.75 ERA in 12.1 innings. There wasn't much fantasy value there, but I would have liked to see the guy stay on the major league squad for a little bit.

Jonathon Van Every: Provided a nice average in the few games he played; Another guy I would have liked to see have a little more playing time.

Call ups

Rocco Baldelli: Former 6th overall pick and "Can't miss prospect." Hitting in a very good Boston lineup and hopefully healthy, he might be able to provide some value. Clearly he's not worth the add right now, but he's worth a spot on your watch list.

Jeremy Sowers: Also a 6th overall pick, the 26 year old posted a 2.25 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 4 starts at Triple-A. Had a rough first start against Boston, but still may provide some fantasy value. Put him on your watch list and keep an eye on him, he might be poised for a breakout year.

Xavier Paul: Called up after Manny was set to serve his suspension, posted a .344 AVG with 2 HR and 14 RBi so far at AAA. Without regular playing time, he might not post serviceable numbers, but at only 24 years of age he may be one to watch.
