A pair of call-ups
It’s been crazy to see the amount of Yankees who have made their Big League debuts this year. Overall, the number stands at 11 different players making their MLB debuts. Some, like Clint Frazier, are top prospects, while others, such as Gio Gallegos, are more roster filler or were needed out of necessity.
Frazier came up right after Dustin Fowler’s injury, and looks to be a fixture in the lineup from here on out, despite what Brian Cashman says. He’s hitting for power and providing a nice energy spark. He’s also wearing #77 now, which is pretty rad.
Miguel Andujar played only one game for the Yankees. He came up, tore the cover off the ball and went 3-for-4 with 4 RBIs, and was sent back down after the game. He’ll be back, but it’s gotta be a tough pill to swallow to get the call, perform, then immediately be sent back down.
Both player’s successful debuts earned them Topps NOW Call-up cards for their performances. I snagged them from the same seller for the same price that it would cost to normally purchase one of these.
I hope Frazier provides many more Topps NOW moments this summer, and I really want to see Andujar back sooner than later.
