Another ex-Orioles pitching prospect finds success after leaving organization


Recommended Posts


The Orioles selected 6-5 Texas native Parker Bridwell in the ninth round of the 2010 MLB Draft. The team was hoping Bridwell's high upside and potential would shine through in the Orioles minor league system. But it never did, and the organization eventually moved him to the bullpen before trading him to the Los Angeles Angels on April 17th of this year. 

The trade clearly infused Bridwell with new life.

In Triple-A Salt Lake, Bridwell dazzled as he posted a 0.92 ERA in three starts before being called up due to injuries to the pitching rotation.  

On Tuesday night, Bridwell made his first career MLB start for Angels against the Atlanta Braves. 

The 25-year old had an impressive outing as he went six innings, giving up six hits, three earned runs, one walk and four strikeouts.

Most importantly, he earned a win as the Angels would go on to rout the Braves, 9-3.

So 3 good starts at AAA and a quality start in his first start makes him a success? Man, those Angels are lucky to have such a successful pitcher.

Honestly, that is ludicrous.    I wish Bridwell nothing but the best, and I hope he is successful, but if one start was all it took, Mike Wright would've won a Cy Young award by now.
