Baltimore Orioles Call Up OF Henry Urrutia


As the All-Star break comes to a close, teams will look closely at their roster as they get prepared for the second half of the season in hopes of a playoff run.

FOX Sports Ken Rosenthal confirms that the Baltimore Orioles will call up 26-year-old Cuban Outfielder Henry Urrutia.

He is expected to join the team in Texas for a workout today and will officially be added to the roster. The young outfielder is batted .365/.427/.531 with seven home runs and 43 RBI’s between Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk this season.

When he becomes apart of the active 25 man roster, he will most likely see some playing time at both left field and at designated hitter. The Orioles are in 3rd place right now, with the league leader in home runs, Chris Davis, leading the way.

Adding the talented left handed hitter in Urrutia to this already deep, power hitting outfield should work in their favor as they are in a tight mix for the division title. He should make his Major League debut this weekend in the series against the Texas Rangers.

Time to see what this kid can do at the major league level.
