The Top Prospect in Baseball Has Arrived: Tampa Calls Up Wander Franco

After a 6-game losing streak, the Tampa Bay Rays are ready to shake things up in a big way. They've finally called up the top prospect in baseball, infielder Wander Franco, from Triple-A. 

The move has been long-awaited by Rays fans. Franco has been the consensus Number One prospect for two years now, and has been killing it in the minors.

At Triple-A Durham, Franco had a .323 average, a .977 OPS, along with 7 HR and 35 RBI in just 39 games.  

Watch the moment he gets the word:

Franco will be 20 when he makes his MLB debut on Tuesday. 

If there's any question about how he might fare in the majors, consider this: The only other players ever to be ranked the No. 1 prospect for two consecutive years by Baseball America are Bryce Harper, Andruw Jones and Joe Mauer. And we all know how those careers turned out. 

Indeed, it's a Wander-ful time to be a Rays fan.
