Will the Baltimore Orioles be calling up Jake Arrieta soon?

The Orioles’ #4 rated prospect coming into this season according to Baseball America is 24-year old righty starting pitcher Jake Arrieta. The Orioles won’t need a 5th starter until next Saturday and Arrieta might get the call. He has started 4 games in AAA-ball this season and he is 2-0 with a 0.36 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP. He has only allowed 13 hits in 25 innings in the minors so far this season and he has 23 whiffs as he is doing a outstanding job of missing bats but that is nothing new to him. Arrieta has now started 52 games (3 years) in his minor league career and he is 19-16 with a 2.93 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP. He has whiffed 291 batters in 288 2/3 innings in his minor league career and he has only allowed 235 hits. The Orioles need to start looking to the future and I think that they should call up Arrieta to start next Saturday and see what the kid has. They have nothing to lose in giving him a chance right now.
