Pirates Call Up Outfielder Prospect

The Pittsburgh Pirates have called up Cal Mitchell from Triple-A Indianapolis.

It isn't too surprising that Mitchell is getting a shot with the Pirates. The 24-year-old outfielder is putting a very good season together with Indianapolis, so it makes sense for him to get a promotion while he's hot at the plate. In 34 games on the year, he has five home runs, 26 RBIs, and a .307 batting average. Now, he will be aiming to translate that success to the majors.

Assuming Mitchell gets into game action, this will be his first time ever playing in the majors. It's been a long road to the majors for him, as he has been with the Pirates organization since 2017. Let's see how he does from here.
