Parker Bridwell #6 Prospect
He pitched most of 2011 at 19-years old and although he put up pedestrian numbers, his ceiling is only surpassed by Dylan Bundy among Orioles pitching prospects.

Tony, I'm surprised you have Hoes still in the top five (assuming he is in fact still in the top five). I'll wait for the writeup but I guess I'm encouraged that you think his bat will play in LF.
Regarding Bridwell, I saw several of his best starts, and he's definitely one you can get excited about. I'm not a scout, but I really liked what I saw.

What does it mean for a pitch to have a lot of "depth"?
His slider was his out pitch this season although occasionally fell in love with it and threw too many of them. It has good downward bite as well as good depth.

Break is usually referred to as bite -- hard/soft and early/late as qualifiers. This usually impacted by release, arm angle and spin velocity.

About Bridwell...it sure would be nice for him to turn his potential into production in 2012. He certainly has the potential to be a top 75-100 prospect after this year.
If one or two guys (Bridwell, Hoes, Delmonico?) can make that jump, our three established guys maintain and with our top 5 pick, it would be a major boon to our system.
