The Orioles have agreed to terms with 7th round pick Matthew Price, according to Steve Melewski of MASN Sports. Price signed for slot, which is $149,300, according to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun.
They have now signed 27 of their 40 draft picks.
Don’s Thoughts: Matt Price is a fast tracking bullpen arm that will not wow you, but could be a useful 6th or 7th inning arm. He is battle tested and a proven senior.
He has a clear idea of how to set up hitters and works both sides of the plate. He will work 93 mph in relief and has good action on his slider that would be his secondary bread and butter. His change up is effective enough to balance out his other pitches and is in the 79-82 mph range. His command and control will help his pitches play up.
