It’s been nearly a month since the last installation of the Engelb Vielma Tracker, which chronicled the many times that the career minor-leaguer was claimed off waivers this offseason. Currently with the Orioles—his fifth club in sixth months—Vielma’s had a busy week. Some important updates:
- Last week: news breaks that Vielma (who is from Venezuela) is having visa issues and may not be able to report to camp on time.
- Three days ago: news breaks that Vielma will officially miss the Orioles’ first full-squad workout due to the aforementioned visa issues.
- Two days ago: news breaks that said issues have been resolved to such a point where Vielma is now expected in camp on Thursday.
Rejoice! Look out for Vielma—who, we should note, was in fact mentioned in passing a few weeks ago in this Press Box Online article about non-roster invitees to watch—in camp tomorrow.
Now, some anagrams of his full name, Engelb Stalin Vielma:
- Lamentable Vile Sign
- Ball Game: Evil Tennis
- Lima Bean Event Gills
- Meatball Given Lines
- Slam-Bang Level Tie-In
Until next time!
