Orioles Calling Up 6th-Ranked Prospect

The Baltimore Orioles appear to be calling up their sixth-ranked prospect.

Pitcher DL Hall is meeting up with the Orioles in Cleveland.

Hall will be on the taxi squad for now, but it looks like he'll officially be promoted to the majors on Thursday when the rosters expand to 28 players. 

Hall made his major league debut earlier this month but really struggled, allowing five hits, five runs and three walks while striking out six over 3.2 innings of work against the Tampa Bay Rays.

In the minors this season, the twenty-three-year-old has posted a 4.48 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and a ridiculous 137 strikeouts in 84 innings. 

The Orioles have begun transitioning Hall to the bullpen, and he closed out Triple-A Norfolk's win on Tuesday night, going 1.1 hitless innings and striking out one. 
Hall will likely be used as a high-leverage reliever for the Orioles down the stretch as the team makes a push for the playoffs. He is the Orioles' sixth-ranked prospect and the 92nd-ranked prospect in all of baseball.
