September call up this year or sooner? He's been pretty hot lately right?

This is promising actually. Not that he'll keep up that slash line for the next 2 months but still he left room for a call up in 6 weeks.

That article was from 20 days ago, ~3 weeks ago.  He's still in AA.  Does anyone think he'll make the jump straight from AA?  I know he's mashing but he's still only 21 years old.

While I do think Buxton should crack the MLB squad before September call ups.  I don't think they should just bypass AAA.  That's more of a thing pitchers do.  Hitting is a skill that generally takes more refinement.  While Buxton is having a nice season in AA, he isn't exactly killing it in terms of his triple slash line.

 

Let him continue to develop.  Promote him to AAA in June.  Then if he has a few hot weeks in AAA then start considering a call up.  Right now a .829 OPS in AA with nearly a strikeout a game on the season isn't justifying a call up.  Yes he is starting to get hot and is a premier talent.  But he needs to stay hot.

 

If I was to bet on it, I'd say early to mid August he'd be up.  Which would be great for him to get to play with Torii Hunter.  As Trout constantly talks about how Torii helped break him into the big leagues.

The Twins being in the race could accelerate his call up as well.  But I'd say there's a 1% chance he gets called up before Super Twos (coming up soon) and a 99% chance he is up in September.  I'll say 60% chance on late June and a 90% he's up in August.

 

Just throwing out some %'s there.

He had a terrible start to the season which has really depressed his overall slash line. He also started the year wit ha 15/2 K/BB to begin with, since that point hes done much better with a 24/13 and is carrying a .302 average in the last 30 days. Guy is just acclimating to AA and at a young age, coming off a lost season. Im not in a rush to see him come up this year, but hes showing me everything I wanted to see at this point. His legs are healthy, as noted by the 13 SB and 11 3B and hes thrown in 6 HR as well as 6 2B. Hes got the ability you rarely see and so long as he stays healthy (hes played in every game so far I believe)  big things are in store.

 

I will say I dont see a ton of value to him going to AAA at all, mainly as hte better prospects and talent pool live in AA. AAA is far more for career minor leaguers than it is high end talent, while Im sure hell get some time there, I dont think its overly important.
