Fangraphs: Orioles Top 15 Prospects

4. Rodriguez- Is Rodriguez really this high? I didn't know that.
5. Hoes- Will he be able to hit enough to play left field?
6. Delmonico- We need to find a position for him.
7. Kline- Is he a starter or a reliever going forward?
8. Avery- I could see him being a solid 4th outfielder in the majors.
9. G. Davis- Is Glynn Davis a better player than Johnny Ruettiger?
10. Wright- I'am expecting a big year from Wright at AA.
13. Davies- He sounds like a fantastic 26th round pick to me.
14. Bridwell- Is Bridwell gonna spend another year starting at Delmarva?

Yeah. On my mock depth chart I have him starting at Frederick and it's not a gift. If he has a big year there at his age don't be surprised to see him on someones' Top 50 Prospect List.

Maybe he's rated higher because he has accomplished almost as much at a younger age.

I would hope so. He needs to show that he can make the AA adjustment and is for real.

I also have him starting at Frederick and that's not a gift, either.

That's where I have him starting and he'll probably stay there for at least a month or two. Once some of the SPs at AAA shake out I could see him moving to Frederick if he's earned it.

He's good and I have no problem with him at #4.

osforlife wrote:5. Hoes- Will he be able to hit enough to play left field?

I think so.

osforlife wrote:6. Delmonico- We need to find a position for him.

Yup.

osforlife wrote:7. Kline- Is he a starter or a reliever going forward?

He has the stuff to start for sure.

osforlife wrote:9. G. Davis- Is Glynn Davis a better player than Johnny Ruettiger?

Davis has much better speed, more power potential, and a better arm.

I would not be surprised if he begins 2013 with Frederick. He's been working out with Dylan Bundy and made some improvements towards the end of last season. I expect him to be much better this season.
