September is the time of the year when young, talented players get one last shot at the major league team before heading back to their homes, or travel to winter leagues to keep in shape, until the preseason workouts begin in February.

Although this is the time when teams are able to evaluate their future talent, the Baltimore Orioles (88-67) have been busy keeping pace with the Yankees in the East.

Currently, the Black and Orange sit just one and a half out of first place, a 0.5 game in front of the Athletics for the lead in the Wild Card and 2.0 games up on the surging Angels for the second Wild Card spot.

This season, the Orioles have used a number of call-ups to fill the voids left due to injuries, or just a need for a position player/pitcher. For example, the 20-year-old Manny Machado has already made a name for himself at the major league level, and it looks as he will not return to the minor leagues for the rest of his career.

However, there have been some September call-ups who have turned heads and are in the future plans for the Birds.

Check out the list and see when your favorite September call-up will be joining the Birds for the long-term in the coming 2013 season.
