Default Kevin Pillar getting the call?

With Colby Rasmus very possibly going on the DL, it appears that Pillar'd be the one getting the call. It'd be him or Gose, but Gose has declined of late, and AA (Jays GM) has raved about Pillar lately.

Also; this tweet, from Jays scout, Steve Springer.

steve springer ‏@qualityatbats 6m
Kevin pillar 1k signing bonus making mlb debut tonight-bottom line u hit u play-40 rnds 4 a reason-no exact science 2 it-compete/confidence

Clint ‏@StivBators 5m
@qualityatbats he's been called up?
Expand
steve springer ‏@qualityatbats 3m
@StivBators yes


EDIT:
@stivbators Sean Ochinko also posted on Facebook congratulating Pillar for his call up.

Good for him

I guess it's time for prospectors to sell sell sell, to me.

I'd think a small jump just because of the call-up, then the rest is performance-dependant.

WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWW, that's sick dick news! Look at the accollades from his fellow players below! Kevin Pillar Being Called Up By Blue Jays - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More I will show off my mini stash later!

*From a prospecting POV, I dunno whether he'll get much love, but he will hit .280+ with some added speed for the Jays, he can hit at any level.

For him the price jump will be more performance based. Expect base chromes to be about 10-12 now and more if he plays well his 1st couple of games.

He's that kind of guy. Never takes anything for granted, hard nosed, instincts are great.

Kid is going to be really good. I see Hunter Pence type numbers, little less pop. His auto prices should see a small rise for call up. But his numbers will be what sky rocket the cards.

I'm sitting on 6 Blue Wave auto's, 1 Blue auto and 2 Refractors. Might drop a couple in the next day or two. But I have a feeling hes going to be more valuable in a year or two when people see what hes capable of.

he's a guy unfortunately, like other top "performers" where even if the guy bats .300 the rest of the year, the fact that he's on a non US non playoff team, he won't see much love. But this guy will be in the league for 10+ years as a solid leadoff or #2 hitter so you can either sell in the next few days or sell down the road if you believe in him.
