According to sports reporter Ian Malinowski and a tweet from Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Rays, Shorewood alum Blake Snell will be called up from the Ray's Triple-A team to play in the majors on Saturday as the Rays meet the Yankees in the Bronx at Yankee Stadium.

Snell will fill a hole in the pitching rotation for the Rays.

According to Malinowski,
Snell, just 23, was ranked by Baseball America as the twelfth-best prospect in baseball, and the top prospect in the Rays organization. He was Baseball America's minor league player of the year. Baseball Prospectus ranked him as the #21 prospect in baseball.

The plan for now is for Snell to make one start and then return to the Triple-A team in Durham.
