Rays top-ten prospect Shane McClanahan added to postseason roster

The Tampa Bay Rays will be including one of their top pitching prospects on their postseason roster as Marc Topkin reports that Shane McClanahan is be called up to join the big league squad and will potentially make his Major League debut during the Wild Card round of the postseason.

McClanahan was a first round selection by the Rays in the 2018 draft, selected at 31st overall out of the University of South Florida; he was considered the top left-handed pitcher in the draft by Baseball America. He made his professional debut that summer and was electric as he carved through opposing hitters during his brief time on the mound. In 2019, McClanahan surged through the system and finished the year at the Double-A level.

I believe McClanahan would be the third MLBer to debut in the post-season with Mark Kiger (2006) and Adalberto Mondesi (2015).

The Twins are also doing this with OF Alex Kirilloff.

Is this the new way to game service time?

I wondered that too. At least in the context of this weird year, where it may not make sense to bring them on for the last few weeks of the season to get their feet wet.

No September roster expansion might mean we see more of these situations.

Does anything other than the day ever get rued?

According to Bob Dylan, you would probably rue putting on airs when you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue.

Mr. and Mrs. McClanahan's daughter.

Mark Kiger is no longer unique in baseball history!

Mr. and Mrs. McClanahan's daughter.
Shane's grandmother?

And that's what we call...full circle.

Are you familiar with Pete Fairbanks? Perhaps you’re not, because he wasn’t one of those 12 [Rays pitchers who saved a game this year]

So who saved their first win of this postseason Tuesday? Pete Fairbanks. Who else?


From Jayson Stark's column. Hilarious.

This is the new "what does this have to do with Frank Tanana?"

But Kiger never played in a regular season game after his post-season debut.
(And I don't care how badly the A's got killed by the Tigers in the LCS, I have an unshakeable belief that the A's win the LCS if Mark Ellis doesn't get hurt in the LDS.)
