It’s what I’ve come to think of as Terrance Gore Season. Sure, there are all kinds of intriguing callups on Sept. 1 and the days after, when rosters expand from 25 players, but I’m always interested to see which speedsters get the call. Gore is back for the third straight year, but there are several other players who could add to your team’s steals total as well.
Over at Today’s Knuckleball, I’ve ranked 10 emerging stolen base threats, and not all of them are recent callups. With many teams getting a roster shakeup this time of year, roles can change, so there are a few names on the list you might overlook if you’re focused solely on promotions from the minors.
Have a look at the list, and chime if I missed somebody, or if I’ve over- or underrated someone in the rankings.
