...not named Price, Wieters, Hanson, etc

Who are some guys to look out for? Any local talk going around in your area/city?

The talk in Baltimore is actually more about these guys right now. Most have probably read up on them, but....

Nolan Reimold: 2009 AAA stats... .386 BA, 8 HR, 25 RBI, 19 R, 5 SB, 17 BB, .479 OBP, 1.192 OPS. Obviously Wieters is arguably the best hitting prospect in baseball, but right now Reimold is really overshadowing him in Norfolk. Pie blows and Lou Montanez isn't exactly tearing it up so Reimold could find his way into the O's OF at some point...soon

Chris Tillman: 3-0 in 5 GS, 2.52 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, 27 K, 10 BB, .209 BAA. Tillman has been tearing it up in Norfolk as well. Look at the O's rotation...sometime soon Tillman will find his way in there to steal a spot.

For the Rangers, not much should be expected. Justin Smoak is dominating, but he won't be coming up anytime soon. The earliest will be August if the Rangers pull off some trades. Julio Borbon was a possibility, but he's started off pretty slow. Same with Feliz. And of course, Holland is already up.

The Angels don't really have anyone that will come up soon. They have some guys tearing it up in the minors, but they won't get the call up this year.

Guys like Palmer, Loux, and Ortega have been some where between serviceable and pretty good but once the regulars come back from DL, they will all be delegated to bullpen or AAA. A lot of the Angels bullpen are out of options so guys like Palmer who have pitched pretty well will probably be sent down just because he has options left.

The Pirates have no prospects worth mentioning.

(They also have nobody on the 25-man roster worth mentioning.)

Guys like Daniel Bard and Michael Bowden are really tearing things up in AAA so I see them being called up this season (Bowden has already been up once).

Carlos Gonzalez has been tearing it up in AAA, and would already be in the majors if there wasn't such a logjam in the Rockies outfield. If someone like Hawpe gets traded, he'd be the first one to get the call, and have a good chance to start.

Another guy to look at is Eric Young Jr. He's likely to be more of a utility type player in the majors, but his speed makes him a very intriguing prospect. I'd like to see what he could do starting at second base and batting at the top of the order.

Adam, I think Bard was just called up.

Gordon Beckham could be one to watch, too. The Sox called up Pods, so you know offense is needed.

Luke Hochevar, former #1 pick, terrible year last season, has a sub-1 ERA in the minors, though his K/BB needs some work. How long can they go with Ponson?

How much longer can they wait for Gamel in Milwaukee?

McCutchen's average hasn't been up to par, but he has a 12/10 BB/K meaning he's seeing the ball well. The hits will come.

David Huff could be solid call up for Cleveland. Not an overpowering pitcher, but he hits his spots and has a good change.

Philly really has no one. Yeah, Carrasco is a top SP prospect, but he's been struggling. He probably won't see action for a couple months at this rate. Worley, Brummette and Stutes are producing while Savery still has a high walk rate in double-A. All four are potential big leaguers, and Worley has the best shot to do so this year.
Offensively, Michael Taylor could be worth a look if he continues to rake in double-A. But he'd only be activated for an injury (Ibanez, Hawaiian and Werth). Neither Donald, nor Mayberry have been hitting too well in triple-A, though Mayberry has six jacks.

Kyle any word out of Baltimore about Troy Patton:

Quote:
Patton is 3-0 with a 0.95 ERA and 21 strikeouts in 28.1 innings for Double-A Bowie.

There has been some talk about him. After Tillman, he is likely to be the next in line...ahead of the slightly younger (and better) guys like Arreita and Matusz.

For those in deeper leagues, he's one to keep an eye on. Just called up by the Marlins, Coghlan has 72 steals in 302 games playing at second base. An excellent BB/K ratio in the minors as well for the 24-year old, 154 to 147. .298/ .388 / .451 in his career. He was at .344 with nine thefts before the callup along with only 10 K in 96 AB. 21 hits in his last 40 ABs.

With Uggla in his way, expect Cameron Maybin to be the one losing some PT as he just can't hit right now. They'll probably play him in left and hope he can spark the O.

Reimold got called up today and should be with the O's tomorrow. With injuries to Adam Jones, Luke Scott....he should see some playing time right away.

The Brewers called up Gamel, but it looks like they're just going to play him when they're on the road during interleague play.

Coghlan is a solid 2B. He can swipe some bags and has surprising pop. Also, with Bonafacio coming back down to earth, Coghlan can sneak into the lineup at 3B where he played before the switch to second. He'll probably hit about .280 with 10-12 HR and 18-24 SB if he plays regularly the rest of the season.
