Former Clemson pitcher Berken making MLB debut

Former Clemson pitcher Jason Berken will make his Major League debut for the Baltimore Orioles tonight in a game against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Berken, a sixth-round pick from the Tigers, will be subbing in the rotation for recently released veteran Adam Eaton. 
Berken started the year at Class AA Bowie and after two starts was promoted to Triple-A Norfolk, where he was 2-0 with a 1.05 ERA.
I took this photo of Berken when he was in Class A Frederick a couple of years ago. News of Berken’s callup caught me by surprise, and all my Clemson photos of him must be locked away in my home archive. I can’t put my finger on any of them right now.
