Report: Trevor Bauer to get major league call-up

Arizona Diamondbacks heralded prospect Trevor Bauer will
likely make his
highly-anticipated major league debut Thursday against the
Braves, according
to reports.

Bauer, who started for Triple-A Reno Sunday, was pulled
after only throwing
50 pitches. The right-hander tossed 2 2/3 innings,
allowing one run on two
hits with two walks and five punchouts against Salt Lake
City in his shortened
stint.

According to sources, Sunday’s start was an ideal off-day
side session for the
youngster, in preparation for Thursday’s start in Atlanta.

The 21-year-old would step into Joe Saunders’ spot in the
rotation, after the
veteran hurler was sidelined with left shoulder
inflammation Saturday.

The third player taken in the 2011 draft, Bauer has
compiled a pristine 4-0
record with a 2.82 ERA and 56 strikeouts in 44 2/3 innings
pitched at Reno.
He is 11-1 with a 2.23 ERA and 116 punchouts at two minor
league levels this
season.
