Yankees call up prized shortstop prospect Peraza

Coming off a disappointing West Coast swing, the Yankees will provide shortstop Oswald Peraza with an opportunity to spark their drive toward the postseason, beginning with this weekend’s series against the Rays at Tropicana Field.

The Yankees announced on Thursday that they are promoting the 22-year-old Peraza as one of their September callups. Peraza is rated as the Yanks’ No. 3 prospect by MLB Pipeline. He’s No. 53 on the Top 100 Prospects list.

Peraza hit his 19th home run of the season on Thursday for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in the first game of a doubleheader. He was removed from the game after four innings, receiving congratulatory hugs in the RailRiders’ dugout from his teammates.

Set to become the first Yankees big leaguer born in this millennium (June 15, 2000), Peraza is touted for an enticing blend of power at the plate, speed on the basepaths and smooth glovework in the infield.

I’m getting confused here.

A few years ago there was a SS prospect named Peraza. Jose. Didn’t really pan out but he was a teammate of this guy in AAA. And the Yankees have another Oswald(o), Cabrera, who can play SS as well as other positions and was recently called up.

How many Sept callups do teams get these days?

Not Anthony Volpe?
Volpe was at AA before being promoted to AAA when Peraza was called-up to the Yankees. Volpe is younger, and apparently more highly regarded, but a bit further away from Big League ready.
How many Sept callups do teams get these days?
Only two. Boo!

Not sure what ".....and, here we go...." means, but if it's a prediction of some overly anal jerk taking offense at the idea that 2000 is part of "this millennium", WELL HERE I AM, BABY
