3 for 3 w 2 home runs. Barely missed a third one but still got a hit. Hoping to see him in Camden later in the year.

He was born to hit… he is a machine that can hit the ball out of any part of the ballpark it’s an approach that needs to be copied a lot more than it is.

He is such a talented player. He seems to be back to full strength and ready to advance. I understand them taking it slow with him last year, but it seems that he won’t let going slow continue.

He may be ready for the show!

He hasn’t gone above High A yet but I bet that progression will happen quickly. Maybe by August he’s ready for the show.

I still recall that Dave decided he wanted him way before his growth spurt. His dad was 6-4. Dave figured he was gonna grow.

Yup, the author of this article agrees with you.

Because he’s missed so much time, Kjerstad hasn’t played above High-A, which is why the Orioles sent him to the Fall League last year to get more at-bats. If he keeps hitting at this rate, he may force his way into the big leagues before the end of 2023.
