Jack Flaherty, Juan Soto and more fresh faces to watch during the 2019 MLB playoffs

A new baseball postseason brings with it a chance for new players to have their star moment.

Around Major League Baseball right now, there are quite a few young players who have had stellar seasons and are now ready to approach the biggest month of the season — when the lighters are brighter, the headlines are bigger and the whole nation is watching.

Sure, we’ll see the likes of Clayton Kershaw, Alex Bregman, Max Scherzer and Aaron Judge playing October baseball. But we’ll also see stars-in-the-making like Jack Flaherty, Juan Soto, Yordan Alvarez and Gavin Lux.

Our crew of MLB writers picked one such fresh face from each postseason team, names you should know about as you prepare for baseball’s exciting final month.

Note to self: Check back in when the playoffs are over, to see how well they performed during it.

Four September callups who could be difference-makers in MLB’s playoff chase

With rosters expanding after Sept. 1, some of the game’s best prospects will get a chance to aid their club’s run to the postseason. But others who have certainly earned their shot will end their seasons without a call to The Show.

Here’s a look at the most important prospects to watch as the season draws to a close, as well as the two biggest names snubbed from their first promotion to the majors.

Players of tomorrow- or folk likely to remind us about the line concerning Greg Goossen?

Report: Dodgers calling up prospect Gavin Lux

MLB.com’s William Boor reports that the Dodgers are promoting infield prospect Gavin Lux to the majors. Ron Cervenka of ThinkBlue LA was the first to break the news.

On the bright side, if baseball doesn’t work out, he can have a long and happy existence as a character in a soap opera.
