Orioles recall outfield prospect Heston Kjerstad, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 draft

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles recalled outfield prospect Heston Kjerstad from the minor leagues on Monday prior to the start of their series with AL Central-leading Cleveland.

Kjerstad is ranked No. 21 on MLB Pipeline’s prospect list. He went 2 for 14 in seven games with the Orioles earlier this season. At Triple-A Norfolk, he’s hit .300 with 16 home runs and 58 RBIs in 2024.

Kjerstad was the No. 2 pick in the 2020 draft out of Arkansas.

Baltimore designated utilityman Nick Maton for assignment.
