As the Dodgers set sail into September, the fans have been treated to the first wave of call ups as the rosters expand for the remaining 27 games of the MLB season.
So far, the team hasn’t called up anyone that hasn’t been mentioned on our site or around the Twittersphere. Some have wondered why Joc Pederson wasn’t called up with this first group, but will most likely join the team in a few days once the Triple-A season plays their final three games.
Pederson’s stint in Oklahoma City has been less than ideal, and his future with the club is probably rockier than ever. He has hit just .125 in his last ten games with one double and nine strikeouts.
To add to that, Dodgers’ manager Dave Roberts told reporters yesterday that Alex Verdugo’s is being considered for a postseason roster spot this month depending on how he performs. Verdugo is one of six players to be called up so far with a few more to follow in the coming days.
Let’s take a look at who has been called up so far and the potential impact they may have over the next few weeks.
