The Cleveland Guardians have gone from being a team that looked like it had no chance of being a legitimate contender to a young upstart team with a ton of youth on its roster that could potentially win the AL Central.
But those aren’t the only young players on Cleveland’s roster, nor or they the only young upstarts in the Guardians’ system.
23-year-old infield prospect Tyler Freeman is on a six-game hitting streak down at Triple-A Columbus.
A Guardians prospect page on Twitter tweeted some of Freeman’s stats during the hit streak.

Let The Kids Play
The future looks bright for the Guardians.
They’ve got a team right now that is tied for first place in the AL Central division with the Minnesota Twins, thanks in large part to their young players.
But with Freeman hitting the way he is down in Triple-A, there isn’t much more he can do in the minors before he ultimately gets the call to come up to Cleveland.
Sure, six games is a small sample size, but those stats are pretty insane.
Freeman looks like he’s ready to be called up to the big-league roster.
There really isn’t much more he needs to do in the minors.
His time might just be now, and he would give the Guardians a huge boost offensively.
Again, the Guardians are a team with an incredibly bright future that we’re about to see very soon.
Freeman’s time is coming, and now we just have to wait and see if the Guardians feel the same way and decide to call him up.
