The Orioles drafted Hoey out of Rider University in 2003 and were initially using him as a starting pitcher. As a starter, Hoey had a 2.79 earned run average for the rookie-level Bluefield Orioles and also made 15 starts for the Aberdeen IronBirds in 2004. [1] He missed the rest of 2004 and most of 2005 due to Tommy John surgery; the surgery, as well as maturing, allowed him to gain three miles per hour on his fastball. Upon returning from the surgery, he became a relief pitcher. He pitched fifteen innings as a reliever in the short-season Class A New York-Penn League for the Aberdeen IronBirds in 2005 and started 2006 in the South Atlantic League with the Delmarva Shorebirds. He became Delmarva's closer at the start of the season; from there, he started a rapid ascent through the Orioles' minor-league system, receiving call-ups to the high-Class A Frederick Keys and the Class AA Bowie Baysox before the end of the minor-league season. Across the three levels, he combined for 33 saves and a 2.28 earned run average; he allowed three home runs, struck out 73 batters, and walked 18 in 51 1/3 innings of work. He was called up to the Orioles on August 23, 2006, and made his first appearance with them against the Minnesota Twins.
