September Call-Up Odds for MLB's Top 20 Prospects, 3 Weeks Out

Published by Bleacher Report on Sun, 09 Aug 2015

When the calendar turns over to September, MLB active rosters officially expand from 25 to 40 players.Generally this is a time when teams promote the guys that have bounced between the minors and majors for most of the season, adding a few arms to the bullpen and bats to the bench in the process.However, there are always at least a handful of top prospects who are given a chance to show what they can do during this time as well.Last season, names like Joc Pederson, Daniel Norris, Maikel Franco, Dalton Pompey, Cory Spangenberg and Brandon Finnegan headlined the crop of September prospect promotions.So who could we see get the call this year' Let's take a look at the top 20 prospects in the league and the odds they make the jump.First, a few notes on requirements for this list and prospect rankings before we get started.Must Still Have Rookie Eligibility:To be considered for this list of prospects, a player had to still have rookie eligibility. That means someone like Javier Baez, who exceeded rookie limits last year, was not included. At the same time, someone like Joey Gallo, who has already debuted this season but still holds rookie status, was included.Must Have Reached at Least Double-A:The odds of a player being promoted straight from Single-A to the majors for a September call-up are incredibly low, so those players were simply excluded from the conversation here.Rankings:Prospect rankings were not pulled from any one source specifically but are instead a combination ofthe updated top 100 prospect list from MLB.com,the midseason top 50 prospect list fromBaseball Americaand my own personal opinion.40-Man Roster:It's noted on each slide whether or not a player is currently on his team's 40-man roster. If he is not, a player will need to be designated off the roster in order for that player to be promoted, so guys who are already on the 40-man roster obviously have a better chance of being promoted in most cases.100-1 Odds:No prospect was given worse than 100-1 odds, so think of receiving those odds as an indication that there is little to no chance that player will see the majors here in 2015.Hopefully that clarifies things, now on with the show.Begin Slideshow
