The Baltimore Orioles play the Tampa Bay Rays tonight in the second game of the three game series. The Orioles won last night 5 to 3, for the recap of that game go here. The Baltimore Orioles have selected the contract of catcher Caleb Joseph and he will be starting tonight. Jamile Weeks has been optioned to Triple-A Norfolk. The Orioles needed an extra catcher with Matt Wieters ailing from a forearm injury. Wieters had test done and it looks like he will avoid the disabled list.
Joseph will start and will be making his Major League debut tonight. I have enjoyed watching Joseph develop as a Minor League player and have been following him for years. Joseph handles the bat well and has improved his defense, playing well at each stop. Joseph also has a lot of power and has a good head on his shoulders.
Here is the Orioles lineup with Joseph batting ninth. Bud Norris will be starting tonight for the Orioles.
