Orioles vs. Red Sox

Derek on the blog today for Brittany.

*The big news before game 3 of the three-game set with the Red Sox is the roster move in which the Orioles called up prospect LJ Hoes. Hoes, rated the No. 7 prospect in the Orioles system according to the most recent MLB.com rankings, is batting 8th and playing left field today against LHP Jon Lester.

He flew in this morning after some flight problems last night to him to Cleveland and Detroit, and he missed a connection flight because of delays. He didn’t get into until around 9 this morning, but here’s here now and says he’s excited to be back in the big leagues after a brief stint last September.

To make room on the active roster, the Orioles DFA’d Jairo Asencio. If he’s claimed by another team, they’ll have to put him on the big league roster. If he clears waivers, he can go to Triple-A Norfolk. The Orioles also have 10 days to see if they can work out a trade involving Asencio. 

Plenty more on the move coming later on Orioles.com.

*Top position player prospect Jonathan Schoop went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts yesterday for Triple-A Norfolk. It was his second game back for the Tides since returning from a strained lower back.

*Kevin Gausman pitched 4 1/3 innings yesterday for the Tides. He allowed four earned runs on six hits with two walks and two strikeouts.
