Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Athletics are calling up pitching prospect Sean Manaea to start Friday night against the Astros.

Manaea, the Royals first-round draft pick in 2013, was acquired from Kansas City last year in the Ben Zobrist deal. While he has a sketchy health history heading into this year, he has been doing just fine at Nashville in 2016, posting a 1.50 ERA and a 21/4 K/BB in 18 innings.

The future is now.
