Thursday, September 01, 2022, was a big day for New York Yankees Prospect Oswald Pereza. This is because he got the much-awaited call-up to the Yankees’ side. All this was made possible as MLB has allowed the teams to expand their active roster from 26 to 28 players. With the Yankees season going downhill, many fans feel that this decision might have come at the perfect time for the team.
Yankees Add Top Prospect Oswald Pereza Into Active Roaster!
New York Yankees have called in their no. 3 prospect player Oswald Pereza, as the MLB team are all set to expand their roaster with two additional players. This might be just the chance Oswald has been waiting for so long. He is likely to make his big league debut for the Yankees in the upcoming weekend in a series against Tampa Rays. The 22-year-old has been pulled in the middle of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders game on Thursday. In the said game, Oswald struck his 19th home run of the season.
Peraza will come to the Yankees side, who have had an awful August. In all its likelihood, Oswald may just walk into the infield mix as Anthony Rizzo’s back issues might potentially keep him out for at least the next three games. In his final game in Triple-A, Peraza even hit a home run, continuing a fantastic recent streak. He now joins a team that is going through serious trouble. But this came in as an opportunity to flourish on their largest stage. In just 98 games, Peraza hit.258/.329/.729 with 18 home runs, 49 RBI, and a total of 33 stolen bases.
MLB Pipeline has Peraza’s overall prospect ranking at number 53. Behind outfielder Jason Dominguez and fellow infielder Anthony Volpe, the shortstop is the Yankees’ third-best prospect in the organization. The 22-year-old is renowned for his quickness and defense. Peraza is anticipated to remain at shortstop in the major leagues. The leaders of the AL East will resume winning if Oswald Peraza performs as well as Yankees supporters hope he does. Meanwhile, the Yankees tweeted that they are reassigning utility player Marwin Gonzalez to the paternity list along with the promotion of Peraza.
The Bombers, who are now in the first place, are coming off their poorest month. This is their lowest record since the 1991 campaign when they dropped 91 games and came in last. They recorded a 10-18 record, their worst calendar month since September 1991. However, due to their high regard for both Peraza and Volpe, things might take a sweet turn. The Yankees also chose not to enter the free-agent shortstop market during the previous summer. So, looks like these new additions to the current bullpen might turn things around for the Yankees.
