Heston Kjerstad has been on the fast track to the majors, and the Baltimore Orioles have elevated him to the big show.
With the O’s in a dead heat with the Tampa Bay Rays for the American League East crown and home field advantage in the MLB playoffs, it’s time to make some noise.
Did Heston Kjerstad just get called mid game? https://t.co/xvJMACnHSx

Ryan Mountcastle got injured in Wednesday night’s 1-0 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. He said he felt his shoulder pop.
By virtue of moving Mountcastle to the injured list, Kjerstad is getting the call, but he may or may not be activated for tonight’s game against the Rays.
Kjerstad is slashing .303/.376/.904 this season with 21 home runs and 55 RBI in AAA.
