Caleb Finally Gets the Call
After 639 games in the minor leagues, at nearly every level of the Orioles farm system, Caleb will finally reach the major leagues. He has had a bit of an up and down career so far; he was invited to the big league camp in 2012 but wasn't in 2013 for some reason. But that seemed to light a fire under him heading into 2013, as he became an All-Star, won the HR Derby, and was the Eastern League Minor League Player of the Year.
He was invited back to big league camp in 2014 and even surpassed Johnny Monell (who had competed with current O's backup catcher Steve Clevenger for the role during Spring Training) on the depth chart at AAA Norfolk. And now Caleb is finally getting the call. Congrats Caleb!
You can expect another post about him when he finally makes his MLB debut!
*I do wish that this wasn't all because Matt Wieters was ailing, but it's still exciting.
