Heston Kjerstad

I was interested in what happened to Heston and this is what I found: Anyone have an update?

“Since the Orioles selected him second overall in the 2020 draft, Kjerstad has had limited participation in team activities because he was diagnosed with myocarditis, or inflammation of the heart. … His 2020 work at the alternate site came to a premature end when he suffered a flexor mass strain in his pitching elbow.”

Most recent update (from 3 weeks ago) is that he’s assigned the the Orioles Low-A team in Delmarva but is still on the injured list. The GM says he’s working out and improving from his bout with myocarditis, but they won’t rush him back.
