The Twins announced him as Orlando Berrios in the draft.

Well in latino cultures the second (or “middle”) name is the name
everyone usually calls you by – from family to friends. So that’s not at
all unusual.

As for what to call him going forward, well, that’s anyone’s guess.
Hopefully they’ll actually consult him before making that
determination (unlike what used to be done in the past)…
