The San Francisco Giants are reportedly calling up outfielder Mike Yastrzemski, grandson of Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski.

The 28-year-old has been in the minor leagues for seven seasons and has never appeared in a major league game.

MLB Network's Jon Heyman first reported Yastrzemski's pending promotion on Saturday. There was no immediate confirmation from the team.

Yastrzemski is batting .316 with 12 homers, 25 RBIs and 38 runs in 40 games this season at Triple-A Sacramento.

He was in the Baltimore Orioles' farm system from 2013 through this March, when the Giants acquired him in a trade for right-hander Tyler Herb.

Carl Yastrzemski was an 18-time All-Star, three-time batting champion and the 1967 American League Most Valuable Player during a 23-year career with the Boston Red Sox (1961-83). "Yaz" was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1989.
