For all the talk about prospects being works in progress, I am now batting 1.000 when it comes to my No. 1 player getting called up. Sure, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Nick Senzel were "cheat code," but I warned everyone that this next player was flying under the radar and that the hype train was gearing up to leave the station. With Tyler Naquin hitting the injured list, the Cleveland Indians made the sensible move by calling up Oscar Mercado, likely the best outfielder in their organization since March.
