In just the past week, four top prospects have been called up to play in the MLB.
It’s been a busy week for the MLB’s top prospects. Over just the past seven days, four of the league’s most anticipated players made their debuts, including Carlos Correa (SS, Astros), Byron Buxton (OF, Twins), Vincent Velasquez (P, Astros), and Francisco Lindor (SS, Indians). Not only did they come up, they also made some memorable moments rather quickly.
Carlos Correa made his first hit on a reversed call, then crushed a monstrous home run in his second game. Byron Buxton went 0-4 in his first game, but scored the winning run after reaching base in the ninth inning. Vincent Velasquez, the lone pitcher in this group, gave his team five innings of scoreless baseball, but took a no-decision in the game. And Francisco Lindor tripped rounding first base after collecting his first Major League hit that should have been a double.
These four newest additions to the league make up part of a 15-player list of prospects that have debuted this year, presumably with plenty more coming the remainder of the season.
