Oscar Mercado to be called up Tuesday

The Indians plan to promote prospect outfielder Oscar Mercado on Tuesday, taking the roster spot of Tyler Naquin, who is dealing with a strained left calf.

Fantasy Impact

Mercado is not among MLB Pipeline's top 100 prospects, but his combination of elite speed with a bit of pop is well suited to the roto game. Mercado has stolen 14 bases in just 30 games with Triple-A Columbus, and averaged nearly 40 stolen bases over the previous four seasons of minor league ball while also showing the potential to deliver low double digit home runs. His hit tool is still a work in progress, so he may struggle to hit for a decent batting average out of the gate, but he is still worthy of attention in most standard 5x5 leagues.
