Yesterday, the Cincinnati Reds surprised their fans by calling up top prospect Elly De La Cruz. De La Cruz was introduced to the media on Wednesday and will be joining the team as a utility player. According to ESPN, the Reds also made the decision to put Nick Senzel on the injured list in order to make room for De La Cruz.

Fans of the Reds were quick to congratulate De La Cruz on his promotion. In a video posted on YouTube, De La Cruz is seen reacting to the news of his call-up. The video shows the moment when he received the call informing him of the news. “I’m getting called up?” he asks in disbelief.

De La Cruz played in spring training for the Reds this year and was one of the standout performers. He will bring versatility to the team as he can play in the infield and outfield.

The Reds are currently struggling in the National League Central division, with a record of 8-11. The addition of De La Cruz to the roster may provide a much-needed boost to the team.

De La Cruz will make his Major League Baseball debut when the Reds take on the Cardinals at Great American Ball Park on Thursday night.
