It’s been less than two weeks since teams announced their initial September call-ups. But in that short amount of time, some of baseball’s top prospects have made their presence felt in the major leagues.
Billy Hamilton quickly proved that he was baseball’s fastest player with four stolen bases (in four attempts) and three runs scored as a pinch runner during his exciting first week with the Reds. Meanwhile, Twins’ catcher Josmil Pinto has been hitting everything in sight, batting .467 with six extra-base hits through his first nine games.
And let’s not forget about Nick Castellanos and Chris Owings, who both have made the most of their recent playing time by collecting at least one hit in three consecutive starts. However, the aforementioned prospects represent only a small portion of the young talent on display in the major leagues this month.
Here’s a look at the early grades for the top 12 September call-ups.
