Carl Yastrzemski’s grandson called up by Giants

It has been a pretty big year for debuting MLB rookies with famous family ties, and you can add another name to that list as of Saturday.

According to Jon Heyman of MLB Network, Mike Yastrzemski, grandson of Carl, has been called up by the San Francisco Giants.

Carl Yastrzemski is, of course, one of the greatest Boston Red Sox of all time, so Mike has some big family shoes to fill. The younger Yastrzemski has never rated as a top prospect, but was hitting .316 in Triple-A with 12 home runs.

Yastrzemski gets the call in the same season that the Toronto Blue Jays called up Cavan Biggio, son of Craig. Plus, there is, of course, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and his exploits since being called up for the first time.
