The 2009 draft finally produces a major leaguer

And tonight, a member of the 2009 draft actually gets in a major league game.

Givens looked pretty good, he was throwing 95-96 and his location seemed sharp. He wasn't as deceptive as I expected and I'm not sure we saw anything but his fastball. But you can't complain about two ground balls and a strikeout.

I think he got Napoli on a slider.

I thought that he looked quite good, seeing as he was having his MLB debut. I suppose he will have to be optioned now that we need roster spots for Gonzo and Chen.

I believe that Mychal Givens is the 999th player to wear the currents Orioles (since 1954) uniform.
That includes other players who have come up but never played a game?

I wonder how long the list of those called up but not used is. Tim Berry and Gamboa have been called up but never got in a game.

Interesting to think about who #1,000 will be.

Almost impossible to predict........but do y'all think it's more likely to be someone called up from the minors this year? Or someone we trade for between now and July?

Well, here are the guys on the 40-man who have never appeared in a game for the O's:

Eddie Gamboa (Norfolk SP, 3.28 ERA)

Tim Berry (Bowie SP, 7.77 ERA)

Jorge Rondon (Norfolk RP, 2.25 ERA)

Not on the 40-man:

Zach Davies (Norfolk SP, 2.94 ERA)

Dariel Alvarez (Norfolk OF, .766 OPS)

I'd say Gambia, Rondon, Davies and Alvarez are the top four candidates for a call-up within the organization. Berry's not getting recalled with the lousy season he's having.

If Walker continues to heat up, he might get added to the mix for sept call-up.
