The Orioles in 2010 signed Hector Veloz out of the Dominican Republic. Even before he signed, Veloz had already tested positive for the anabolic steroid Stanozolol, but the Orioles still handed him a $300,000 bonus, which is a franchise record for a player out of the DR.

Veloz in 2012 posted a .801 OPS for the GCL Orioles and later received a taste of the New York-Penn League where he hit .219 in 8 games.

Accomplishing what he did in the GCL at 18 as a HS player would have been eye opening. If he can play to the same level at Aberdeen this year you'll see him making some evaluators' Orioles Top 10 Prospects lists.
