Predicting the Yankees 2018 September Call Ups

Tomorrow marks the end of August and the August 31st trade deadline, but it also marks the beginning of the month of September and the subsequent September call ups that we will see around Major League Baseball. Who will the Yankees call up on September 1st and throughout the month of September? Let’s take a stab at predicting it.

Justus Sheffield will be in the Yankees bullpen in September. All signs point to it and Aaron Boone himself said it would happen, so you can count on it. Sheffield has posted a 2.55 ERA across Double-A and Triple-A this season in 112.2 innings pitched and he needs a 40-man roster spot anyway to protect him from the Rule 5 Draft after the 2018 season, may as well take the plunge now. Bye, AJ Cole.

The entire 40-man roster is eligible to be called up too which, assuming health, includes:

Tyler Wade, Clint Frazier, Jonathan Loaisiga, Luis Cessa, Ryan Bollinger, Domingo German, Chance Adams, Albert Abreu, and Thairo Estrada.

Remember that Gary Sanchez will likely be back in September as well as Aaron Judge, Didi Gregorius and Aroldis Chapman. Fingers crossed.


  1. Agree , at first I thought Cole might have been a steal but like Shreve the more he pitches the more they hit him.
    Sheffield is needed but I really thought he would had been a 6th starter down the stretch to keep CC and Tanaka fresh.
    Still think the Lynn trade was a mistake , he will get clobbered and I am right.
    Gray in my opinion is better than Lynn and I don't know if that is saying much.
    I like Happ so far , and hope it continues to go great for him.
    Red Thunder will soon be back and we cut Robinson .
    My post season roster
    Sevy,Tanaka,Happ,CC,Gray(He is long man only),DRob,Green,Holder,Britton,Betances and Chapman
    Didi,Wade(PR,Multi player)
    Gardy,Red Thunder
    Judge, Stanton

  2. Red Thunder is almost healthy so dump Shane Robinson and free up another spot on the 40 man.

  3. Well he just started rehab in Single-A so it may be a while before we see him, or it could have just been convenient for the organization. Who knows.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
