The Call-Up

Harrison Bader

by Mark Anderson and George Bissell


The Call-Up: Harrison Bader

The Situation: With Dexter Fowler off to the disabled list thanks to a sprained wrist, the Cardinals turned to Bader to help fill the void and try to stay within striking distance of the playoffs as the stretch run approaches.

Background: A third-round pick of the Cardinals in 2015 following a standout college career at Florida, Bader has blown through the minor leagues in short order. After raking in the Low-A Midwest League during his professional debut in 2015, Bader was pushed aggressively to Double-A in 2016 where he continued to perform at a high level; improving his prospect stock and forcing scouts to take notice. Bader has continued to rip the cover off the ball this year in Triple-A, slashing an impressive .297/.354/.517 in 97 games before his call-up.
