Orioles' Chen named to All-Rookie team

Wei-Yin Chen has been named to Baseball America’s All-Rookie Team.

Chen, who was 12-11 with a 4.02 ERA in his first season in the U.S., joins Texas’ Yu Darvish, Milwaukee’s Mike Fiers, Oakland’s Jarrod Parker and Arizona’s Wade Miley in the rotation.

The outfield on Baseball America’s team is particularly impressive. The Nationals’ Bryce Harper, the Athletics’ Yoenis Cespedes and the Angels’ Mike Trout, are the outfielders. Trout is the overwhelming favorite to win Rookie of the Year when it’s announced on Nov. 12.

The rest of the team is Colorado’s Willin Rosario at catcher, the Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo at first base, Miami’s Donovan Solano at second base, Cincinnati’s Zack Cozart at short and Todd Frazier at third.

San Diego’s Yonder Alonso was the designated hitter. Oakland’s Ryan Cook, the Rangers’ Robbie Ross and Kansas City’s Kelvin Herrera are the relievers.

Chen is the first Oriole to be named to Baseball America’s All-Rookie Team since Nolan Reimold in 2009.

Manny Machado has too many at-bats to be eligible for Rookie of the Year honors next season.

NOTE:

-The Orioles have signed outfielder George Barber to a minor league contract. In 2010, Barber played seven games for the Angels’ rookie league team in Arizona.

We can’t stop staring at these Bowie Baysox commemorative moon landing jerseys

One of the coolest things about Minor League Baseball is the creativity that comes with it.

The stadiums. The ice cream deals. The interesting mascots. And most importantly, the uniforms.

The Bowie Baysox, the Double-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, released special uniforms they will be wearing on Saturday for the 50th anniversary of the Moon Landing.

And, oh wow, are they something. Take a look.

On the front of the uniform, you can see the image of where lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin planted the American flag on the lunar surface of the moon. On the back, a satellite view of the moon is pictured, with the player's number on top of it. Both the number and the cursive "Baysox" on the front are filled in with the American flag.

If you're looking for some to do on Saturday, go support the Baysox and their Moon Landing uniforms. If only there was a jersey giveaway.
