10th Hutter

14th McAdams

16th Rennie

18th Kimmel

19th Hader

23rd Escat

25th Simpson

30th Vega

... all seem to be nothing more than organizational filler. 17th Grim seems like a decent kid who had a terrible spring.

Outside the top 10, it appears that:

12th Waltrip

15th Velasquez

21st Service

25th Herbst

31st Bazzani

33rd Plaia

are the possible overslots, with Velasquez (2nd rd-ish) being the gem followed by Waltrip (5th/6th Rd-ish) and Service (8th Rd-ish)*

When all is said and done, if the Orioles can end up with Gausman, Kline, Marin, Walker, Rutledge, Price, Boss, Waltrip, Velasquez and Service... it will initially seem like a pretty decent draft.

*According to BA, anyway...

McAdams, Hader, and Rennie were HS signs, so I'll wait a few years before calling them organizational guys.

I agree with the guys you listed as possible overslots, but Herbst is a senior so I doubt he gets much to sign. I think Waltrip and Service are both ready to sign according to twitter.

Among the latest players to reach agreements are 18th-round pick catcher Sam Kimmel of Stetson, 22nd-round pick outfielder Will Howard of Kennesaw State, 30th-round selection outfielder Anthony Vega of Manhattan College and 38th-round pick catcher Jack Graham of Kenyon College.

The Orioles signed two players as free agents that were not drafted. They are University of Maryland pitcher Sander Beck, who went 6-2 with a 2.87 ERA this year for the Terps. They have also signed University of San Francisco first baseman Nik Balog. The lefty batter hit .302 this year with 15 doubles and was fifth in the West Coast Conference with 44 RBIs. He will report to the O's Gulf Coast League team. Beck is with Aberdeen.
