I asked eight scouts -- all from opposing teams -- in the past week to order the Orioles' five, mid-20s starters who have been on the Norfolk-Baltimore shuttle from most coveted to least.
Of the eight, only one didn't name Arrieta first. He had Arrieta second and Zach Britton first.
Most everyone else listed Britton second and Tommy Hunter fifth.
Brian Matusz and Chris Tillman were almost evenly split between third and fourth, though Matusz received one second-place vote.
Connolly followed up on Twitter saying that the average order was Arrieta, Britton, Matusz, Tillman, Hunter.
Thoughts? I would probably rank them Arrieta, Tillman, Britton, Matusz, Hunter.
