Elias also thinks outfielder Heston Kjerstad is a keeper after the Orioles made him the second overall pick in June.
Kjerstad didn’t play in 2020. He didn’t work out at the alternate camp site and was excluded from the fall instructional camp due to a non-sports medical issue. But he’s still the same player that Elias coveted, the same player that Elias described as “the best left-handed hitter in the country.”
The same player who’s expected to roam right field at Camden Yards and slot in the middle of the order, whenever he’s deemed ready.
