The MLB’s September roster expansion has been a hot topic this season. Some think that it allows teams to provide extra depth to certain positions. Others believe that this is not a fair system because some teams have more qualified players to call up than their opponents. However, it does allows teams that are out of postseason contention to bring up minor league players to evaluate them for the next season.

The Oakland Athletics have made the most of the expanded roster. On September 1, they called up a total of eight players. This included some familiar faces like Dan Otero, Arnold Leon, and Cody Martin, but it also brought in some new faces. The A’s have had a tough season, but these young bats and arms have been a breath of fresh air for the team. Some of these recent call ups have been making the most of their playing in the big leagues.

These youngsters are the future of the Oakland Athletics, and it is nice to see that they can perform well as the Major League level. Let’s take a look at which September call-ups have been making a positive impression this month.
