In continuing the theme of the 2007 season with Luebke and Howell.. 2007 7th round draft pick Matt Angle was promoted in the Orioles system to AA Bowie. Angle in his Baysox debut went 2-for-3, with a BB. Angle's MiLB player card

The minors are entering their last 10 days of the season, but with the Baysox in a playoff chase, and Angle having a successful A+ season, the decision was made to bring the swift-footed left hander hitter up to AA. Angle batted .289 in the pitcher dominant Carolina League, finishing in the top 5 in hitting, OBP .370, and SB 40.

It was announced last week Angle will partake in the highly esteemed Arizona Fall League this Autumn. Angle will actually be on the same team as 2009 #1 overall pick Stephen Strasburg as the Nationals and Orioles representavtive will play for the Phoenix Desert Dogs. Here is the entire Desert Dogs roster.

With former Buckeye and 2007 draft classmate Cory Luebke being selected for Team USA, Angle is currently the only former Buckeye in AA.
