Today’s edition of the Engelb Vielma Tracker must open with an apology: We recognize that this update is tardy, and for that, we are deeply sorry.

On Friday, a little more than a week after he’d received his first call up to the majors, our beloved utility infielder was sent back down to Triple-A. In his nine days with the big-league club, Vielma made one start and enjoyed three plate appearances. Two of those were strikeouts. The Orioles have brought up reliever Tanner Scott to replace him on the major-league roster.

But let us not dwell on how brief Vielma’s first stint in the show was; instead, we’ll now turn your attention to something slightly happier. Since returning to Triple-A Norfolk this weekend, he’s fared a bit better at the plate. In fact, Vielma has singled in each of his two games back. Wow! And now, it’s time for the most important portion of any Engelb Vielma update: the fact that his full name is Engelb Stalin Vielma, and the many beautiful anagrams that can be formed with that name as source material, including:

  • Meatball Seen Living
  • Eleven Lint Mailbags
  • Navigable Elm Inlets
  • Malleable Investing
  • Gentle Evil Bailsman

Until next time!
