The Call-Up: Brandon Finnegan

Craig Goldstein and CJ Wittmann

The Royals bring up the first major leaguer from the 2014 draft.

The situation: Right in the middle of the AL playoff race, the Royals find themselves looking for another left-handed arm out the bullpen. Insert 2014 first round pick Brandon Finnegan.

AFL 2014

Jeff Moore

The densest concentration of prospect superpowers will offer plenty to watch for this autumn.

The Arizona Fall League is the Mecca of the prospect world, giving scouts and fans the most saturating collection of prospects gathered in any one spot at any point on the baseball calendar, save perhaps the one-day Future’s Game. Unlike that all-star exhibition, however, many of the game’s top prospects will ascend to the desert to play for something more than just national exposure and that third digit on the radar gun, with 32 games to refine their skills against fellow top prospects.

Or: Age ain't nothin' but a number.

Steven Matz was selected in the second round of the 2009 draft out of Ward Melville High School in East Setauket, NY, which is apparently a breeding ground for notable names, ranging from sporadically funny and continuously fat comedian/actor Kevin James, wrestler Mick Foley, former co-host of America’s Funniest Home Videos John Fugelsang, and Terrance Hobbs, lead guitarist for the death metal band Suffocation. Because of these notable names on his high school’s resume, and more importantly, his southpaw potential on the mound, Matz received a bonus of $895K, almost half a million over the recommend slot. The future was bright.

The View from the Loge Level: From the Home of the Braves

5

Daron Sutton

A Hall of Famer's remembrances of the Ted Turner years in Atlanta.

The view from the loge level this week has us seated in Atlanta. We’re not in Turner Field, though the Braves will grow roots there over the next month, with 21 of their next 29 on the corner of Georgia Avenue and Hank Aaron Drive. Instead our view is from Fulton County Stadium, aka the Launching Pad or the ‘Original’ Chop Shop. Your usher is one of my mentors and a man who taught the South and a nation about baseball, Braves Hall of Famer Pete Van Wieren. I was fortunate enough to be on the ‘listening-end’ of many great tales the legendary broadcaster shared with his much younger colleague, and a few times these stories managed to be documented. Most of you know at least a few of the details of these occurrences, but here are a handful of Braves’ memories through Pete’s eyes.

In our advanced media consumption world of ESPN, Fox Sports, Fox Sports 1, MLB Network, mlb.tv, etc., imagine the thoughts of a broadcaster in the mid-1970s when he realized that he would be calling games not in Atlanta, nor Georgia, but nationwide as his boss Ted Turner turned a local UHF channel into Superstation TBS and beamed it coast-to-coast into everyone’s home. The network’s most dependable daily program: the Atlanta Braves.

A look at Lucas Giolito in Lakewood brought back memories from 2012.

Lakewood is not what you expect when you think of minor-league towns. Just off a main road not far from a recently rebuilt Jersey Shore, Lakewood is not small town America. It’s overcrowded New Jersey, within commuting distance of our nation's biggest city, a place where it's go big or go home. It's not the kind of place you expect to see perspective-altering performances from 19-year-old kids in A-ball.

The Call-Up: Arismendy Alcantara

13

Mauricio Rubio and Craig Goldstein

The Cubs bring up the first of their excellent prospects for a sip.

The Situation: Late Tuesday night the Cubs announced that second baseman Darwin Barney will be placed on paternity leave for two days, creating an opening at the major league level. With Emilio Bonifacio still on the disabled list the Cubs are giving Arismendy Alcantara (No. 18 prospect in the Baseball Prospectus midseason update) a two-day taste of major-league action as they’ve called him up from Triple-A Iowa to temporarily take Darwin Barney’s place.

Minor League Update: Games of Tuesday, July 8

Jeff Moore

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including the Rangers' Nick Williams and the Twins' Alex Meyer.

Hitter of the Night: Nick Williams, OF, Rangers (Myrtle Beach, OF): 3-5, 3 R, 2 HR, K. If you know one thing about Williams, it’s his hit tool, but part of what makes it so exceptional is his natural bat speed, which will also lead to some power production. More power will come from Williams getting himself in better hitter’s counts, something he may never do with any frequency, but even if he doesn’t, his raw talent should give him moderate power production to go along with a plus batting average.
