The Baltimore Orioles are well represented in the Arizona Fall League and two of their eight players currently playing have earned recognition in the league's Fall Stars Game that will take place this Saturday, November 2. Pitchers Eduardo Rodriguez and Tim Berry will represent the Orioles in league's version of the All Star game.
Rodriguez and Berry are among 11 pitchers on the West Divsion team in the Fall Stars Game.
Rodriguez, who is ranked as the 83rd best prospect in all of baseball according to MLB.com's top 100 list, is currently boasting a 4.63 ERA in four starts and 11 2/3 innings pitched. Eduardo has also struck out 12 batters and has a 1.20 WHIP.
Berry, who has been a rising prospect in the Orioles organization, was also named to the Fall Stars game, and although he has not started in all his appearances for the Surprise Saguaros, he has pitched extremely well in relief as well. He has a 2-0 record with a 1.64 ERA and a miniscule 1.09 WHIP. In his 11 innings of work, Berry has walked just two, while allowing ten hits and just two runs.
Despite being second in the league in hitting, Henry Urrutia was left out of the Fall Stars game. Urrutia is currently hitting .417 with one homer, six RBI, three doubles and a whopping .475 OBP.
Michael Ohlman could also be considered a snub of the game as he is batting .412 with two homers, five RBI and eight walks, which brings his OBP to a robust .600. What likely kept Ohlman out of the Fall Stars game could be the fact that he has played in just six games due to the team having three catchers.
