To Orioles A advanced club and is scheduled to pitch tonight.
Won’t be long before he’s in the Big’s and making a statement for the Hogs…
Knight will have a shot to make it this season I hope. He’s got all the talent and heart that it takes to compete on the mound.
It’s not impossible, but you rarely go from regular A to the bigs in one season. If he gets moved up to AA (Bowie, MD) this year it’ll be a heckuva year.
Now that he’s in advanced A he will probably pitch against the mighty Fayetteville Woodpeckers, advanced-A affiliate of the Astros. Unfortunately, Frederick isn’t coming back here until late August. Knight may not be on their roster then if he keeps pitching like this.
He did pitch the other night, in a home game against those same Woodpeckers, and allowed 1 run on two hits (the run was a dinger) in six innings, striking out five. No decision.
He threw a very good first game in advanced a last night. Didn’t get the win but I think he went 5 or 6 and gave up 1 run I think I read. His era is .83 or something close to that. He’s throwing well. Wouldn’t surprise me if he’s not at AA in another month or so
