Default SOX September Callups

Ventura has made it clear that he wants September callups when rosters expand on Monday to be able to play and not just sit on the bench in reserve.

"You hear about them and you see the stats and everything, but you always want to see what it is and how it plays up here," said Ventura of top Minor Leaguers such as Andy Wilkins, Josh Phegley and possibly Carlos Rodon. "So whenever that happens, talking to Rick, I want them to be able to play and see what they can do up here and make some decisions in the offseason with how you go forward."

I hope that's true. If so, they might be finally "getting it." You know what you have with the current roster, besides maybe Sanchez and Sierra when he comes off the DL. The rest are known commodities. Play the young kids.

On a related note, I wonder who will get called up to start one of the games of Saturday's double header?

I still want to see Eaton, Avasail Garcia,Abreu, and Gillaspie...they are all still learning to play in the mlb.

Yes, those 4 still need to be everyday players. Fill in the holes with the call up's.

Sounds good. For sure, Dunn, De Aza and Viciedo need to sit. sounds like Ventura is up for it - I can't imagine Hahn disagreeing with that.
Mitchell and Wilkins probably are Rule 5 eligible (or close) so they need a good audition. Mitchell's in-season resurgence has been impressive.

I don't know what the rules are but we are playing other teams in playoff races and just putting out a team of call-ups might not be appreciated by rivals of the team we are playing.

Like we aren't bad with the current guys playing.
I don't think sitting Dunn, De Aza, and Viciedo could make us any worse.
If anything it makes us better.

I've been following this kid a long time it seems .. i thought that he was done after that injury .. it's exciting to think that he can perhaps someday be the player that i always thought he would be .. if he gets the call and plays, it definitely gives me a reason to watch..

Gillaspie may be learning; but I don't want to see him at 3B. He has poor range and a iron glove. He also makes bad decisions at critical times.

Bad as things are... it can always be worse.

I remember way back before Mitchell's injury he had potential to be a very special player. Maybe that potential was not all lost.
