Nearing the end of September, who are the best Dbacks call-ups ever?

Dbacks Best September Call ups 2020-21′
2020: Pavin Smith
What a stud he has been this year. He debuted in 2020 September playing in 12 games and getting 44 plate appearances. He showcased his great contact skills getting 10 hits, 5 walks, and only 8 K’s. He’s carried that over to 2021 where he was tasked with playing 4 different positions. In his 134 games this year, he has 11 HRs, 26 doubles, 47 RBIs, 38 walks, 97 K’s, and a 98 OPS+. He started red-hot but the long season has slowed him down. He’s still building that stamina but there’s no reason to sound the alarm. He’s set to be a consistent MLB starter in the OF or 1B for a long time. Also, he was Mike Hazen’s first draft pick ever and he reached the Majors. What a stellar start. Pavin’s set for a long time and we are lucky to have him.
2021 Seth Beer
Seth BEER! The best last name in baseball finally made his MLB debut in September. He was doing excellent as he had 4 hits in his first 9 at-bats including an HR. Alas, as with everything this season, in his first fielding appearance in the first inning, he dislocated his shoulder trying to make a diving play. He’s now set to undergo surgery on that shoulder and miss the rest of the season. Rest up big Beer! We will need you next year healthy and blowing up people’s beers with your home runs. If you would like more information on Seth and this season, please read up on him here.
May the Force be with You…
