    September callups/40 man roster question

    I know a decent amount about the reds minor league organization and who are the solid prospects and who might be up come 9/1. (Alonso, Chapman, Francisco, etc).


    My question is, do any of the other NL playoff contenders (mainly ST Louis but also San Fran, Philly etc) do any of them have any huge big name prospects that will be up in September that even come close to comparing to Alonso and Chapman?

    And usually sept callups will be after the AAA playoff, if the Bats are in them. This is what happened the last two years, and i have no idea if the reds will continue to do it when they are also in a pennant race.

    I have to think that if the Reds think they have guys in the minors that can help them down the stretch, they'd sacrifice a AAA title for a run at making the playoffs.

    Cain lines a triple to the wall and the Brewers lead 2-0.

    if they DL someone they can bring up anyone on the 40 man roster after Sept. 1st and they can play in the playoffs

    Since nobody else will answer your question, I'll at least say I have no idea for the most part. I do not believe STL has anything besides Shelby Miller who is not close to being ML ready in their farm system. I know the Braves have a guy named Freddie Freeman who is a 1st baseman that was ranked as the 32nd prospect in baseball pre-season, he has hit .308/.369/.510 in AAA this season, with their situation at 1st and 3rd he may get some PT at 1b in hopes they catch a hot bat.

    I know our AAA team is much more stacked than any of the other playoff contenders.

    *ahem*

    I know I didn't touch on any of our possible Wild Card competition, but as far as the Reds and Cards' 40-man rosters go, there's this little gem that's all of 3 days old:
