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. With the waiver wires long since picked over, these September call-ups certainly are crossing over into our weekly Waiver Wire blog. Some can help you now, others are simply setting yourself up for next season.
As we turn the corner into August, teams will tap more and more into their farm systems. Clubs will be looking for a spark, relieve worn down veterans or fill in simply fill in holes created by players on the disabled list. We can expect a dozen or more teams called up on the first of September with roster expansion, but what help could be on the way sooner? We take a look at possibilities with each franchise, beginning with the American League East.
