Pedro is a 23 year old SS who is slick with the glove, but doesn't have much of a bat. He's hitting .242 and has an OPS south of .700 in AAA. I bet he is better then Castro, though.
Janish is a possibility if for no other reason then that they brought up Cruz from AA early in the year. Janish is hitting .267 in AAA, but doe have a .373 OBP.
I don't think there is an chance Valaika gets the call. No way, IMO, does he jump from low A to the majors.
If I had to guess, Lopez will get the call. However, I haven't heard the seriousness of the injury to Seabass. He may not even go on the DL. It didn't look too bad.
