Didn't see a thread. Getting called up by the Cardinals.  I am not a big follower of minor leaguers, but saw the story that he is being called up from Triple-A Memphis.  The story was/is particularly interesting because a little over a year ago he was struck in the head by a line drive.  Suffered a skull fracture and had to have emergency craniotomy to relieve pressure on his brain.  Pretty crazy that he made it back to a mound period, let alone the big show.   Currently 5-2 (12 appearances, 11 starts) with a PCL leading 2.41 ERA.  71 Ks in 59.2 IP.  Again. don't know anything about him outside of what I have written here, so maybe those who follow prospects more can shed light on his  stuff, and if this season is just a flash in the pan or not.  But he will instantly have one of the best last names in the league.  What are we to make of this call-up?

I'm not sure how much fantasy impact he's going to have, but in terms of real-life stuff, this is a very cool, feel-good moment to see him make it after that scary injury last year.

 

Plus as said already, he's got a 80 grade name.

Wow his last name actually has no spaces. That is the weirdest thing.

He was in too much of a hurry to re-find the Fountain of Youth he didn't have time for the spaces this time around.
