While we have seen an unprecedented amount of young prospects reach the majors this season, at ages earlier and earler, some didn't get the call until rosters expanded on Sunday. Some we have been talking about for months, some as recent as last week.

Some can help you now, others are simply setting yourself up for next season.
With Alex Rios now a member of the Texas Rangers, the August "waiver trades" are underway.

In the first of a two part series, we take a look at talent that may soon get a call to "The Show", with a look at hitting.
