I previously wrote a scouting report on Eduardo Nunez, a young shortstop with great batting, speed and occasional power.

Nunez is currently in the New York Yankees Triple A system, the Scranton Wilkes Barre Yankees. 

I, myself, and others think that he will one day soon replace Derek Jeter at short when he retires. 

But with the injury bug infecting the Yankees, Nunez’s number might soon be called up to the big league level. 

The Yankees already called up Kevin Russo and released Randy Winn. Curtis Granderson is finally coming back, while Nick Johnson will have season ending surgery.

They like what they see in the rookie Russo, and they might want to see what other rookies can do, too.

There is a bigger chance Nunez will get his first taste of the big leagues, and very soon.

Another reason why he might be called up: a .317 average and 12 stolen bases (as of May 28, 2010.) The stats do not lie.

Remember his name.
