Oakland Athletics Promote Prospect

The Oakland Athletics have promoted Jordan Diaz to their major league roster.

Diaz has split this season between Double-A and Triple-A. In 120 games between the two leagues, he has 19 home runs, 83 RBIs, and a .326 batting average. Overall, it is fair to say that he has had a strong campaign, so he absolutely has earned this call-up. Now, he will be aiming to translate this kind of excellent hitting to the sport's most competitive league.

The A's are in a position to take a look at their prospects, as they are completely out of the playoff race. Thus, taking a look at Diaz can cause no harm, so let's see how he performs from here.
