Orioles farm director Matt Blood said: everyone staying at XST has been vaccinated and the process is ongoing for those at affiliates; Mike Baumann is still managing arm discomfort and is being brought along slowly; Keegan Akin is progressing; they won’t rush Heston Kjerstad.
Matt Blood says that Heston Kjerstad will be going to Florida in a week, and he'll have a slow buildup. #Orioles won't rush him.
Michael Baumann is being slowplayed in extended spring training, and Keegan Akin's finger is better. He should start Friday for Norfolk.
Very glad to announce that Orioles prospect Heston Kjerstad will join the teams alternate site tomorrow! Heston was suffering from Myocarditis, so this is amazing news! Congrats Heston and good luck!#Clutschman https://t.co/mKmhGAcBTt
The 2021 voice of (potentially) the likes of Heston Kjerstad, Jordan Westburg, Darell Hernaiz, Garrett Stallings, and plenty of other exciting Orioles prospects!

@CarlosACollazo @legacyme3 @Redsteel67 Also interesting whether one of the top 3 teams goes under-slot, as with the Orioles last year and Heston Kjerstad, or whether a college position guy flies up the board. (Benintendi took off around now in ‘15.) In other words: Plenty of variables in play!
@Ben_Dewhirst @SeagerForMVP @MLBPipeline @Orioles @JoeTrezz @RutschmanAdley @hestonkjerstad @G_Rodriguez16 @dl_hall33 Blue Jays 2020 draft picks: Austin Martin, Arash Madani, Shi Davidi, Ben Nicholson-Smith, and Arden Zwelling.
The number of those 5 in their top 30: 1.
Austin Martin is 22 in the MLB top 100.
Heston Kjerstad is 69 AND all 5 of our draft picks are in our top 30.

The Orioles plan to run back their alternate site at Bowie next month as effectively a Triple-A camp.
Who could be there, what it could look like, and why Heston Kjerstad will be there as a "special case:" https://t.co/fg2VX1f2wu
Mike Elias said the Orioles will likely alt site at Bowie this year. Heston Kjerstad will go straight there but it'll be a mostly Triple-A mix, while younger prospects will likely be in Sarasota for MiL spring training. Maybe they'll play some games.

Get a top 3B, and you're in business.
@Eric_Birdland The little I have heard lately about Gunnar has been positive. I have definitely moved him up my Orioles list. Here's what I have today...
1. Adley Rutschman
2. Grayson Rodriguez
3. DL Hall
4. Heston Kjerstad
5. Ryan Mountcastle
6. Gunnar Henderson
The Orioles have the No. 2 prospect in baseball in Adley Rutschman.
They also have two players — Ryan Mountcastle and Heston Kjerstad — who moved up 20+ spots in our Top 💯.

2020 Draft picks Heston Kjerstad (No. 2 overall) and Jordan Westburg are part of a deep crop of hitters in the #Orioles' system.
