  1. This is contingent on the Orioles exercising his option which, despite the tweet's author's optimism, is far from a sure thing.
  2. The draft is one week from today. Here's the latest from the mock drafts. I'll update this thread with the final mock drafts next Monday. I also have video links for each player below courtesy of MLB.com. ESPN: http://www.espn.com/blog/keith-law/insider/post?id=7116 Orioles: Tanner Houck - RHP - Missouri MLB.com: http://m.mlb.com/news/article/233694538/mlb-mock-draft-wright-greene-remain-12/ Orioles: Jake Burger - 3B - Missouri State Minor League Ball community mock draft: http://www.minorleagueball.com/2017/6/3/15735390/2017-minor-league-ball-community-mock-draft-after-action-discussion Orioles: Heliot Ramos - OF - Puerto Rico HS Perfect Game: https://www.perfectgame.org/Articles/View.aspx?article=13755 Orioles: Evan White - 1B - Kentucky SB Nation: http://www.blessyouboys.com/2017/6/5/15739506/2017-mlb-mock-draft-sb-nation-hunter-greene-brendan-mckay-minnesota-twins Orioles: David Peterson - LHP - Oregon Bleacher Report: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2712389-2017-mlb-mock-draft-with-two-weeks-remaining Baseball America: http://www.baseballamerica.com/draft/2017-mlb-mock-draft-3-5/ Orioles: Griffin Canning - RHP - UCLA
  3. I'd be a fan of this pick. One of the better players available at #21 and fills a need. 21. Orioles Some scouts compare North Carolina shortstop Logan Warmoth to current Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy, and the two have overall similar profiles. If the Orioles don’t zig and go prep outfielder as some clubs believe, Warmoth makes total sense as a high-floor college performer. Pick: Logan Warmoth, ss, North Carolina | Read more at http://www.baseballamerica.com/draft/mock-mlb-draft-3-0-major-league-baseball-draft/#kxWTZc7ER1HirvRC.99
  4. The Orioles have added another high school righthander to the draft class Perfect Game has him listed at 6'2", 180 pounds. He is committed to baseball powerhouse, Cal State Fullerton
  5. I watched this 2015 documentary on Netflix last night and it was OUTSTANDING!! It traces the history of the measurement of the fastball in big league baseball. The interviews and vignettes are priceless, including a Hall of Famer cast of Joe Morgan, Al Kaline, the late Tony Gwynn, Hank Aaron, Frank Robinson, Nolan Ryan, Mike Schmidt...etc. etc. The interview with Goose Gossage alone is worth the watch. It seeks to answer the question "Who threw the fastest pitch ever?" The answer will surprise you.
  6. The Orioles head to the D2 ranks to select this Senior righthander
  7. Recognize that last name? Bonilla is the son of former Orioles outfielder Bobby Bonilla. He was considered one of the better draft prospects in the WAC coming into the year. Bonilla stands at 6'4", 205 pounds and is a hard throwing lefty. He didn't pitch at all this year due to academic ineligibility which is probably why he lasted this late. From MLB.com..."Bonilla’s father, former All-Star Bobby Bonilla, and godfather, Barry Bonds, combined for more than 1,000 home runs in the big leagues. Brandon Bonilla's power, however, is in his left arm, not his bat. Bonilla’s fastball has reached 97 mph and sits in the low-90s. His slider gives him a solid second pitch. He throws a splitter in lieu of a changeup, but may need to learn a changeup to profile as a starter. He’ll also need to refine his delivery to improve his control. Bonilla was academically ineligible this year and didn’t throw a lot of innings in his first two years of college. But teams are always interested in finding left-handers with a fastball-slider combination like his.
  8. Lee is the first and only 1B the Orioles selected in the 2014 draft. The Senior is listed at 6'3", 205 pounds and led Radford in hitting with a .357/.465/.482 slash line and three home runs.
  9. The Orioles headed to the Midwest to select Hart, a 6'3", 180 pound right hander.
  10. Ghidotti, a 6'2", 210 pound Senior, was a two-way star this year but his future is on the mound. He pitched out of the bullpen, posting a 2.06 ERA in 35 innings, allowing 35 hits and 16 walks, while striking out 31.
  11. The Orioles went to Juco power house Chipola in Florida to select Simpson, a 6'5", 230 pound right hander. He started out as his freshman season at Florida before transferring to Chipola JC as a sophomore.
  12. The Orioles final choice, "mr. irrelevant" was clearly the standout player during his junior season for Winthrop. On a team that batted just .236 and featured no one besides Olesczuk with an average above .275, Olesczuk batted .389/.436/.556 with two home runs, 18 doubles, and seven stolen bases on 49 games. He's listed at 6'0", 195 pounds.
  13. Grimes is a redshirt junior that stands at 6'6", 208 pounds. He has been drafted twice previously, going pretty high in the 4th round out of high school in 2010 and the 31st round in 2013. Thoughts from his head coach going into 2014 season: "He's a major talent. He had an unfortunate injury that cost him really two years in our program. We saw some good flashes this fall and we hope he can get back to the form he was at when he was a freshman." Grimes made 12 starts for the Yellow Jacket this year. He pitched to a 4.39 ERA in 65.2 innings, allowing 75 hits, 33 walks, while striking out 36. Grimes wasn't quite able to get back to his freshman form as his strikeout rate was way down from his freshman year when he struck out a batter per inning.
  14. Gold bats lefthanded and is a 23 year old Senior from the D3 ranks.
  15. And with the 27th round pick, the Orioles have finally selected a shortstop. Pfieffer is pretty big for a middle infielder, clocking in at 6'4", 225 pounds. He's a senior who just turned 23. No relation to Michelle Pfeiffer
  16. The Orioles add another high school righthander. Burland is listed at 6'2", 195 pounds.
  17. Another draft pick, another college righthander
  18. Another college righthander for the birds. Walker is a 6'2", 180 pound Senior who previously closed for the Lobos but started for them in 2014. He pitched to a 3.87 ERA in a hitters haven, allowing 13 walks and 129 hits over 107 innings, while striking out 36.
  19. McLeod is a redshirt junior that stands at 6'5", 220 pounds. McLeod was limited to just 58 innings in 10 starts for the Demon Deacons but was arguably their best pitcher this year, leading the staff with a 2.33 ERA while walking 28 and striking out 48.
  20. The Orioles head back to the juco ranks to select this righthander. He's listed at 6'2", 205 pounds and struck out 61 in 62.1 innings pitched, with a 3.30 ERA
  21. Back to the high school ranks, finally. Perfect Game lists him at 6'0", 180 pounds. He's committed to Marshall
  22. The O's go down to the Puerto Rico high school ranks for their 17th round selection. Here is his perfect game profile: http://www.perfectgame.org/players/playerprofile.aspx?ID=368372 He's listed at 6'2", 155 pounds so there's plenty of room for growth. Sounds like a "projection pick". Baseball America had him ranked at number 417 on their Top 500
  23. Orioles go back to the college ranks to pick Chleborad, a 6'5", 190 pound junior. As WSU's Saturday starter this year, Chleborad made 15 starts, pitching to a 3.84 ERA in 89 innings, allowing 96 hits, 21 walks, while striking out 54.
