Published

These are my Prospect One top 10 prospects for the Baltimore Orioles organization. You can find all teams organizational ranks, which go beyond the top 10, plus my top 500 prospect ranks which are updated monthly when you join up at the ITL ARMY. Find the link below.

 

Check out the AL East Top 10 Team Prospects podcast when Scott Bogman interviews me on my thoughts on these players plus a look beyond the top 10 for some teams.

1) Austin Hays OF

2017 was a big success for Hays. He hit .328 or higher during both minor league levels. He made it to the majors and saw some resistance, but it’s part of the learning curve. Hays has real quick hands, that as he’s matured as turned into some plus power. He’s kind of the anti-oriole as he maintained a relatively low strikeout in 2017. Not to go be completely different, like many he wasn’t much for walking. I have a bit of a “show me” attitude with Hays translating to the majors, which is causing me to be a tad lower and maybe miss out on him in drafts. I wouldn’t be afraid to be aggressive, and if proximity is important, he could jump up the list quite a bit.


2) Ryan Mountcastle 3B/SS

Mountcastle had a big front half of the year in A+ but struggled in his move to AA. He then spent time in the AFL where I was able to see him. I heard a lot of chatter throughout the AFL about limited projections on him, yet every time he seemed to do something to shut someone up. He played a solid 3B that I believe could stick. He had some impressive raw power, but I do wonder if his swing is going to allow him hit for a positive AVG, so I am sceptical in nature, but he’s right outside the top 100 for me.


3) Chance Sisco C

Sisco in my eyes is a classic, better baseball player than a fantasy player. The positive is his biggest offensive tool is his ability to hit for AVG. For me I look at Sisco with the ceiling of Buster Posey in 2017, with a worse AVG. At the end of the day he’s also a catcher, which is a tad bit of a ding for me. I don’t know if the counting stats are going to catch up to the hit tool, but I could see 20 HR power in his future. I am not aggressive though.


4) DL Hall SP

Hall was the Orioles first round pick in ‘17, and the results weren’t the best as he walked as many batters as he had innings, at 10. Hall’s a command/curveball guy, that is complemented by an ok FB and a changeup. He is the highest upside pitching in the organization and get a chance at a full run this coming season at 19.


5) Hunter Harvey SP

I really like Harvey. Solid low 90’S FB, plus curve and plus command. He also has put together a very repeatable delivery. Reading all of that, it reminds me of a pitcher I loved watching years back, Mark Prior. Like Prior, Harvey has a very intense injury issue. The last time he had double digit innings pitched in the minors was 2014. That’s not good! He has all the stuff to be an exciting SP2 in real baseball, and maybe a SP4 in fantasy, but it’s all pretty muted by the injury risk.


6) Jomar Reyes 3B

7) Tanner Scott SP

8) Cedric Mullens OF

9) DJ Stewart OF

10) Cody Sedlock SP
