According to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union Tribune, the Padres plan to call up second baseman Luis Urias from Triple-A El Paso prior to Tuesday’s game against the Mariners. Urias is ranked No.22 overall according to MLB Pipeline’s Top 100 prospects list, and is the No.4 prospect in Padres’ organization.
He’s made the All-Star team at every level in the minor leagues, and owns a career .306 avg and .397 OBP. Urias turned 21 in June.
The Padres have yet to confirm the move. In 120 games for Triple-A El Paso this year, Urias is slashing .296/.398/.405.
