The Call-Up: Wilmer Difo

3

CJ Wittmann and Bret Sayre

The Nationals surprise with their latest call-up.

The Situation: When Jayson Werth went on the disabled list this week, the Nationals made an unconventional choice to replace the slugging outfielder: They brought up an infielder with 56 plate appearances higher than High-A. Difo, though, offers flexibility that will help a Nationals lineup still missing third baseman Anthony Rendon.

Background: Difo, signed as an international free agent in 2010, broke out in the second half last year. He has never made a BP Top 100 but cracked the Nationals' Top 10 this winter. He burst into real prospect conversations this year, hitting .315/.367/.520 in 139 plate appearances split between High-A and Double-A.

The Call-Up: Noah Syndergaard

8

Christopher Crawford and Bret Sayre

The Mets tap into their considerable high-ceiling depth and call up Noah Syndergaard.

The situation: The Mets sit in first place in large part due to their quality staring pitching, but have placed Dillon Gee on the 15-day disabled list with a groin sprain. To replace him in the rotation, the Mets will call up their top pitching prospect, Syndergaard.

Background: Syndergaard was a somewhat surprising sandwich-round selection by the Blue Jays in the 2010 draft out of Legacy High School in Mansfield, Texas. The right-hander quickly established himself as one of the better pitching prospects in the Blue Jays system, but was considered the “other” prospect in the deal that saw R.A. Dickey move to Toronto; Travid D’Arnaud headlined the deal. It didn’t take long for the man they call “Thor” to become one of the best right-handed pitching prospects in baseball, as he missed bats at a much higher rate than he had in his time with the Blue Jays. He ranked at the top of BP's top 10 Mets prospects this winter, and came in ninth on the BP 101 in February.

Tout Wars X

Bret Sayre

Bret selects his roster for May.

Six weeks removed from that fun and chaotic April draft in New York City, I think I have a better idea of how to approach this monthly format. I wrote in great detail about how that afternoon went, and what I was hoping to get out of that initial team. In the end, what it turned out that I got from that initial team was a lot of points—which is much to my delight.
