With tomorrow being September 1, it’s very likely that Henderson will have a spot on the rosters as they expand to 28 players.
DL Hall will join Henderson tonight in Cleveland.
But as Henderson makes his first trip to the big leagues, he’s set to make a little history and join some elite company.
He’ll be the youngest Oriole to make his Major League debut since Manny Machado did it in 2012.
He’ll also be the youngest position player acquired via the draft to make his Major League debut since Carlos Correa in 2015.
