How Will Jake Arrieta's Debut Compare To Recent Orioles Rookies'?

Orioles' top pitching prospect Jake Arrieta will make his Major League debut this evening, taking on the vaunted Yankees.

Arrieta will become the 11th pitcher to make his first big league start in the past four years for the Orioles, and he's looking to continue a strong string of starts from the 2009 rookie class that included Brian Matusz, Chris Tillman, David Hernandez, Koji Uehara, Brad Bergesen and Jason Berken.

He's also looking to avoid the control issues that have struck down other touted O's prospects in their debuts.

Hopefully, for O's fans, he'll go all Stephen Strasburg on the Yankees. Unfortunately, he doesn't get to make his debut against the Pirates.

So, here are the ten other Orioles' debuts of note in the past four years.
