Fantasy Baseball Prospect call up: Here's why Vinnie Pasquantino is a must-add first baseman

We've been waiting for Royals top prospect Vinnie Pasquantino to get the call to the majors for a few weeks

now and it's finally happening, according to reports Tuesday.

Pasquantino, a first baseman, will get the call from Triple-A Omaha after the Royals traded Carlos Santana to the Mariners.

Santana, who had a sub-.600 OPS through the first two months of the season

has been hot in June and could provide a nice boost for a Mariners squad that has disappointed this season and just lost Ty France

for what could be a significant amount of time with a Grade 2 flexor strain in his left elbow

However, Pasquantino getting the call is the most interesting part of this for Fantasy players. 

Here's what you need to know about Pasquantino, who doesn't necessarily carry as much hype with him

to the majors as some other prospects, but who could be an impact bat nonetheless:

Pasquantino is a 24-year-old former 11th round pick from the 2019 draft out of Old Dominion University

who has risen quickly through the Royals minor-league system since missing the 2020 season due to COVID
