Hew went ahead to start the 2017 season with the Frederick Keys of the Class A-Advanced Carolina League. He became the first player in Frederick’s history to hit three home runs in one game on May 26, 2017. In June 2017, he received a promotion to the Bowie Baysox of the Class AA Eastern League. Between Frederick and Bowie, he played in 128 games where he slashed .329/.365/.593 with 32 home runs and 95 RBIs.

On September 5, 2017, the Orioles promoted him to the major leagues, thus making him the first 2016 draftee to reach the major leagues. On September 7, 2017, he made his major league debut. He had his first MLB hit in a 9-3 loss against the New York Yankees followed by his first MLB home run on September 16.

Career Continuation

On September 11, he was supposed to have reported to the Suprise Saguaros, the first time ever that the Arizona Fall League (AFL) season opened before October. His promotion was made possible by both MLB and the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) which, two days before the transaction approved a rule change that allowed players on the 40-man roster to report to the AFL in October. On September 23, in a 15-inning 11-10 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre, he became the first MLB rookie to have at least five RBIs, a stolen base and an outfield assist in the same game since the RBI became an official stat in 1920. Eventually, the Orioles decided not to send him to the Saguaros after he started in 15 of 20 games where he batted .313 with a .958 POS and made several spectacular defensive plays.

In a game against the Philadelphia Phillies on August 11, 2020, he hit a two-run inside-the-park home run to break an 8-8 tie. Thus that became the game’s difference-maker as the Orioles won the game in extra innings 10-9. For the Orioles in 2020, he slashed .279/.328/.393 with four home runs and nine RBIs. The next year in 2021, he appeared in 131 games with the Orioles batting .256 with 22 home runs and 71 RBIs. He returned to the Orioles for the 2022 season.
