Cal Stevenson called up for Athletics, catching Wednesday

Oakland Athletics outfielder Cal Stevenson is in the starting lineup for Wednesday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Touki Toussaint and the Los Angeles Angels.

What It Means:

The Athletics selected Stevenson's contract from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday as a replacement for Jed Lowrie (DFA). Stevenson, who was acquired from the Tampa Bay Rays in a trade earlier this summer, will replace Skye Bolt in center field Wednesday and hit ninth in his MLB debut. The lefty-hitter is capable of playing all three outfield positions.

Stevenson slashed .305/.417/.542 with three home runs and six stolen bases over 72 plate appearances in the Athletics' minors. Per numberFire's MLB Heat Map, the Athletics’ implied total (3.91) is No. 19 in the majors today. Among Wednesday's projected starters, Toussaint has the third-best strikeout rate this season (27.3%), although he's only thrown 8 1/3 innings through two starts.
