USM alum Matt Wallner to be called up to Triple A

According to reports, Matt Wallner’s run of tormenting Double-A pitching has come to an end upon his promotion to the Triple A St. Paul Saints.

Of course, that’ll happen after he plays in Saturday’s All-Star Futures Game where he’ll get to showcase his prodigious power swing that made him USM’s all-time home run king with 58 long balls.

Somehow, Wallner has perfected the art of the homerun even more this season, already hitting 21 of them and 11 in his last 34 games for the Wichita Wind Surge, the Double A affiliate of his home state Minnesota Twins.

Saturday’s game leads off at 6 p.m. on the Peacock streaming network.
