A smart string of September call-ups can often be the difference between a playoff berth and a phone call to the local golf course.
When MLB rosters expand to 40 on September 1, expect some of the game's top youngsters to get the call to the majors. The New York Yankees will certainly make some additions, but who will be brought up to help the team's run at the American League Wild Card?
There are five obvious candidates. While the team could certainly bring up more (the max they can call up is 15), sometimes there isn't a need. It's often best to leave youngsters down on the farm if they don't have a realistic shot at getting any playing time.
Five minor leaguers, however, are in the running for serious playing time. Those five prospects are listed and analyzed here.
