With August approaching its last days, September is right around the corner. That’s how calendars work. In terms of a baseball season though, that means that rosters expand by 5, going from 25 to 30. These additions are your September call-ups.
This season’s call-ups will all be big bonuses to a struggling big league club. Last season saw the additions of Pedro Figueroa, Andy Parrino, Jemile Weeks and Michael Choice on September 1st, with Tommy Milone and Evan Scribner being added two days later.
This season, it’s safe to assume who we will see in Oakland.
