Orioles minor league recap 6/26: Heston Kjerstad adds another multi-hit game

Triple-A: Lehigh Valley (Phillies) 9, Norfolk Tides 1. Yeah, this one, uh... it wasn’t great. Starting pitcher Chris Vallimont, a 40-man roster player who was making his Triple-A debut, did not have a great first experience at the level, getting smoked for six runs on nine hits in a four inning start. He even committed a balk. Vallimont had done well at Double-A since arriving by waiver claim. Perhaps his subsequent outings at this level will fare better than this one.

How is Mark Andrews the Ravens’ most underrated player in 2022?

We’d call Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews a lot of things — elite, productive, reliable, uber-talented, one-of-a-kind — but underrated is not one of them. Andrews enjoyed a breakout season in 2021 that saw him record a league-high 107 catches for 1,361 yards and nine touchdowns, and the most impressive part of that performance may be the fact that he achieved those numbers under the arm of Tyler Huntley for half the season.
