September Call Ups

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I know this is a little early but want to get the board’s thoughts on who you think will be called up or who you would like to be called up?

I'm thinking Hamilton gets activated off IL so he doesn't have to replace anyone currently there and a reliever.

Gavin Sheets.

Punt Jake Lamb into the sun if we have to. Gavin should either be added as the call-up, or take Lamb's position outright to allow them to bring someone else up.

I would only want Sheets if he was going to get majority of the RF at bats (or DH if Vaughn and Eloy are both out there).

That’s going to be Goodwin as long as he stays healthy.

Yep, which is why I don't think we see Sheets.

We get two spots, and one of them will be the third catcher.  Going to guess Burger, but tough to say what depth they like more.

SS2K5, what is the motivation for carrying 3 catchers?

La Russa said they'll be carrying three catchers

So Hamilton and a catcher as the 2 extra spots?

With 3 catchers, they likely go with 12 other position players and 13 pitchers.

If Engel and Hamilton are both activated, one current player must go to accommodate both (Lamb?).

Sadly, it’s likely Sheets and Burger aren’t promoted, to accommodate Goodwin, possibly Lamb. JFC

Fearing Engel doesn’t return with all the delays and setbacks this season.

I'd assume so. Maybe Kyle Crick gets a look.

If he is ready to go, that would be my first guess as to the adds.  But assuming he is still hurt, that's when I would guess Burger.

It needs to be a 3rd catcher as they will be conservative with Grandal until close to playoff time.

Hamilton will get one spot and the third catcher will get the second.  I predict that Seby will get roster spot 28 after being sent down for 4 days when Grandal returns.

I imagine that they will send Seby down for the 4 days as he's already used an option this year while Collins has not used an option this year and it would be crazy to blow an option year for 4 days.

Does he have to stay down for 10 days?

I don't know whether or not the September 1 callup date is an exception to that rule, but if not, then just send down Lopez or Ruiz for 10 days so Seby can stay. With 2 days off next week and 2 opponents with weak lineups coming, they should be able to manage a pitcher short for 10 days.

Yermin. When he was sent down, Kenny publicly promised he'll be back. 

I don't recall Kenny saying anything about Yermin.

The old rules would have really benefited the Sox this year. I can see them using 32 spots this year. Crick has pitched very well in CLT, I just don’t see them using a roster spot on a guy who is leaving after the season.

I don’t recall Kenny Williams publicly speaking or going on record at all about anything in 2021.

This was the last interview I’ve seen featuring Kenny Williams, very poignant.

Zero need to keep that promise that nobody remembers

I don't think Yermin plays another game for the White Sox

I misremembered. It was Hahn who said it.

 

That certainly is not a promise that he will be playing for the White Sox
