The minor league season is coming to a close with a few of the teams in the thick of playoff races. 2012 has been an exhilarating ride for all of baseball, with the surging new set of star prospects, a few new faces in the MLB playoff hunt, and a new Baseball CBA. It’s been a good year in the Orioles minor league system with a few of those star prospects making a name for themselves on a national scale. But what about those players that may not have the allure of a Manny Machado or Dylan Bundy?
Below are a few prospects that I think have flown under the radar in the Orioles’ minor league system. Some of them have been through a few road bumps, while some have simply been forgotten. At the end of the day, these players have displayed skills in some aspect of the game that make them useful assets down the road. I’m not saying they are top prospects, or they are definitely going to produce, but that there are tools some teams in the future may deem useful.
Just a few guys I think have little-to-no buzz this year, but have some skills I like. Nothing to get entirely overworked on, but just wanted to discuss them a little.
Don already touched on a few guys in his Rule 5 piece, but I would have added Aaron Baker to this list as well.
