With rosters set to expand from 25 to 40 players on Monday, September call-up fever is officially in the air.
In the last week we’ve looked this year’s potential call-ups in a variety of ways, including an overall ranking, position-by-position breakdown and, more recently, a deeper look at prospects capable of improving their teams’ playoff chances.
And with roster expansion still a long weekend away, we’ll be rolling out even more call-up-related content in the coming days.
The rankings for this article were based on those released earlier in the week in our look at the top 25 call-up candidates. However, instead of simply identifying the best prospects, this article strives to focus on players who have been rumored to be in the mix for a call-up as well as those facing an imminent promotion thanks to a spot on the 40-man roster.
