Top 20 Orioles prospects after the draft


Recommended Posts

Assuming the Orioles sign their top 10 rd picks, what's your updated top 20 prospects?

*I'm not sure there is an overslot picked after the 10th rd who would crack the top 20, even if they signed...

Tyler and Ayers would probably crack the top 20. They're mega-longshots to sign though.

Here's how I'd go, assuming Gausman and Steve Johnson graduate:

1. DBundy

2. Schoop

3. Delmonico

4. EdRod

5. Harvey

6. Hader

7. Urrutia

8. Walker

9. Wright

10. Hoes

11. Hart

12. Marin

13. Davies

14. Ohlman

15. Sisco

16. Berry

17. Kline

18. Tarpley

19. Seabrooke

20. Wilson

this is a rough guess at best

You know, that Top 10 looks pretty good.

I am guessing Delmonico is ahead of Urrutia because of age? But who ultimately has the higher upside does everyone think?

Delmonico's power potential puts him comfortably ahead of Urrutia for me (and pretty much everyone else), plus his age and level are more impressive than Urrutia's. Urrutia's a good player and all, but Delmonico has all-star upside which isn't something you can say about many 20 year olds.

Esposito is pretty much a lost cause, yeah.

The interesting thing about this draft is how much room there is for improvement in each pick's prospect status. The first nine picks could all become top ten prospects if things go right for them. Clearly Rajsich and Duquette believe in the player development system, and if you just look at the last year and a half, there's really no reason not to. It'll be a test, but if the development team passes it, things could look pretty good a couple years from now.

It loses a little bit if Gausman graduates though. But he is likely the only graduate unless Urrutia is called up following a freak end of game jumping accident of all three OFers.

No question it loses some if Gausman graduates, but even then you have Marin sliding up who seems to be a pretty intriguing player.

I agree that that seems to be the deepest top 10 I've seen in a few years.

Seems pretty high on Kline, who wasn't really showing much before the injury (in a very, very small sample size obviously). Any reason for that other than his status as a #2 draft pick? Just curious if you'd heard any good reports on him.

I want the phone number to the guy Tim Berry has lobbying for him.

Esposito? Lost cause. Parker Bridwell? Done. Xavier Avery? Topped out. But there's Tim Berry, a lefty starter going on three seasons of 5.00 ERA baseball and he's just hangin' in there.

Why do Avery, Veloz, and Gurka make your list? I'd have to say Avery is a non-prospect at this point. Gurka is more a project than a prospect. And Veloz doesn't have the results.
