Padres Call Up Former Top Outfield Prospect

Once a big-time prospect in the Texas Rangers organization, 27-year-old outfielder Nomar Mazara is getting the call back to the big leagues. 

Mazara has yet to play in the majors this season, but has been tearing it up in Triple-A, with a .367 average and a 1.095 OPS, with 7 homers and 27 RBIs in only 35 games.  

Mazara was a consensus Top 100 prospect after the Rangers signed him as a 17-year-old and brought him up to the bigs at the age of 20 in 2016. He finished 5th in Rookie of the Year balloting that season, then cracked the 100 RBI mark in his second season. 

He could never elevate his level of play to the elite status expected of him, and has bounced around from the Chicago White Sox to the Detroit Tigers, and now the Padres system. 

Mazara will now try to live up to the hype, all these years later.
