TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Former Florida State outfielder D.J. Stewart has been called up to the major leagues by the Baltimore Orioles.

Stewart played three years with the 'Noles, slashing .344/.481/.570 with 27 home runs and 168 RBI.

Selected 25th overall in the 2015 draft by Baltimore, Stewart spent 116 games this year with Triple-A Norfolk, where he hit .235 with 12 home runs and 55 RBI.

The Orioles are 41-102 this season, the worst win total the team has had since winning 64 games in 2009.

MASN's Roch Kubatko highlights the struggles the Orioles have undergone in 2018 with this stat.

If Stewart makes an appearance, he'll be the eighth active former Nole to play in the MLB this year, joining Sean Gilmartin, Rafael Lopez, Buster Posey, Shane Robinson, Robby Scott, Devon Travis and Luke Weaver.
