Zack Littell

If you’re looking for someone that can make an immediate impact at the major league level, Zack Littell is someone that has had his share of success this season. Despite allowing eight runs in a sacrificial lamb outing against Tampa Bay on May 30, Littell has a 0.96 ERA since and the two runs he has earned came in a two-homer outing against Oakland on July 20.

What’s more impressive about Littell’s season is that nobody has been able to hit him. In that same stretch, Littell has held opposing hitters to a .212 average and he’s been able to limit the damage with a .364 slugging percentage.

With numbers like that, it’s curious to wonder why Littel isn’t already with the major league club and be called up prior to September in order to be eligible for the postseason roster. Either way, Littell would be a valuable arm that the Twins could use to their advantage down the stretch.
