Selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the second round of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft out of H.B. Plant High School in Tampa, Fla.

Givens has had a really interesting career.  Some clubs liked him more as a pitcher than a middle infielder, but Baltimore decided to put him in the field.  In both 2009 and 2010 he was one of the organizations Top 10 prospects, but injuries and ineffectiveness derailed his career as a hitter.  So, in 2013, he switched to the mound.

That move put him back firmly on the organizations prospect radar, rating the teams #23 prospect.  After the 2014 season he ranked #27.  This season he was doing great in AA, 0.942 in 57.1 relief innings…and so Baltimore called him up to the big league club.

With Baltimore he has been in 14 games and has pitched really well, with a 0.789 WHIP and 22 K’s to only two walks.
