O's top ten pitching prospects/ position prospects

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen people list our guys in this fashion before. Here's my attempt:

1. Brian Matusz

2. Chris Tillman

3. Jake Arrieta

4. Brandon Erbe

5. David Hernandez

6. Zach Britton

7. Bobby Bundy

8. Oliver Drake

9. Jason Berken

10. Brad Bergesen

(Honorable mentions: Troy Patton, Chorye Spoone)

(Off the radar, but worth watching: Pedro Beato, Tony Butler, Tim Bascom).

1. Matt Wieters

2. Brandon Snyder

3. Nolan Reimold

4. Bill Rowell (based solely on draft position, not production)

5. L.J. Hoes

6. Xavier Avery

7. Ryan Adams (hey, at least he can hit...)

8. Caleb Joseph

9. Tyler Kolodny

10. Brandon Waring? Justin Turner? Elvin Polanco? Good heavens, we could use some position players

Yup, I like Zagone. He seems like a crafty lefty who throws strikes and is deceptive with his pitches. He may ultimately end up as a lefty specialist out of the pen, but he's getting a shot in the starting rotation for now.

I think Miclat goes no lower than 7th on the position players' list.

Rowell could very well move ahead of him on my list, but I think Miclat will have a very solid season and hold down the 4th spot in the top 10 list.

But I definitely want to see Rowell earn a higher spot.

I think you have to switch him before Hernandez and Bergesen. Bergesen can't strike anyone out and Hernandez can't stop walking people. Erbe has progressed and I'm predicting a breakout season in Bowie where he will emerge as a top pitching prospect in this league. Based on his age and development he is definitely, IMO, our 4th best pitching prospect.

10 Bergesen
