The Orioles have announced that outfield prospect D.J. Stewart is heading onto the active roster. His contract was selected today.
A few corresponding moves were announced as well. Righty Cody Carroll and catcher Andrew Susac were both activated, while outfielder Mark Trumbo and righty Pedro Araujo were bumped to the 60-day DL.
Stewart, a former first-round pick, will make it to the bigs in advance of an offseason Rule 5 decision. Clearly, the O’s expect to carry him on the 40-man roster throughout the offseason.
Now 24 years of age, the FSU product has moved steadily through the Baltimore system. He wasn’t able to follow up on a strong 2017 season at the Double-A level, however, as he struggled a bit in his 490 plate appearances this year at the club’s top affiliate. He hit a dozen home runs, swiped 11 bags, and slashed .235/.329/.387 on the year.

Excited to see him called up. Have been hearing about him for a while. My understanding is the bat has played reasonably well but the fielding has needed some work. Look forward to actually watching him (just as I have watching Cedric Mullins of late).
Good for the Orioles. Hopefully he plays everyday here on out. His numbers were down this year in part to that horrific hitters park in Norfolk.
He sucks lmao. .235 in aaa low obp .329
your mother sucks
You suck at life he is the best player ever. U are terrible at everything you do i know him and he hates you now
As an o’s Fan I’m not excited about him now, and I never was, he had a decent year in double a at 23, he walks a lot, only thing he does well
FSU teaches them how to walk but can’t see him doing much in mlb level
