The Baltimore Orioles haved called up SJC alum L.J. Hoes to the major league roster. Hoes is at Camden Yards tonight in uniform and on the bench as the Os take on Tampa.
Congrats to LJ Hoes. Not trying to diminish his call up in the least, but why him and not a kid like Dylan Bundy who has been killing it in the minors, is Strasburg-esque, and hasnt been shut down yet? For those of you who are unaware, he had a huge writeup in SI a few weeks back. Is this just a tip of a hat to a local kid who is a solid (.300/.375) hitter or does he have real major league potential? Again, not attacking the call-up, more asking as someone who is a passive baseball fan and doesnt fully know.
And FB champ, nice pop warner level humor there. Im sure you classmates in fifth grade will appreciate it.
I think a better question is why wasn't LJ called up when Avery was last year?
