Former St. Francis & Stanford player called up as Suarez goes to DL

Since the event was created in 2004 there have been 30 past participants who have reached the Big Leagues.  Currently these players are either established contributors and/or are on active rosters:

Athletics RF Stephen Piscotty, Dodgers CF Joc Pederson, Rockies RHP Bryan Shaw, Athletics SS Marcus Semien, Marlins RHP Kyle Barraclough, Mariners OF Mitch Haniger, Phillies C Andrew Knapp, Astros C Max Stassi, Astros 3B J.D. Davis, and most recently Reds INF Alex Blandino, who was called up on 4/9/18 to replace injured starter Eugenio Suarez. Congrats Alex!

There are plenty of other former event participants who are also legitimate prospects and making noise in their organizations, such as Mariners SS Drew Jackson and Mariners OF Braden Bishop, who could make his way up in 2018.
