The Baltimore Sun is reporting that former Stone Crab Joey Rickard will break spring training camp as a member of the Baltimore Orioles 25-man roster. The former crab was selected by the Orioles during the Rule 5 draft at the Winter Meetings.

Rickard has impressed Orioles skipper Buck Showalter after having a great spring. He hit .390 this spring and led the Orioles in doubles (6) and stolen bases (5). On the spring he was 23 for 59 with 6 doubles, a triple, a home run and 7 RBI’s while scoring 15 runs.

Rickard was a member of the Stone Crabs last season.
