The day after selecting Owasso, OK high school RHP Dylan Bundy with the fourth overall pick, and seeing division rivals Tampa Bay, Boston, and Toronto select 20 of the next 56 players chosen, Joe Jordan and the Orioles' scouting department settled in for the real meat of the amateur draft: rounds 2 through 30.
In the past, Jordan has employed several different strategies with the Orioles. In 2009 he took many high-upside high school and junior college players who also carried some injury risks, and in 2007 took just seven high school players, five of whom did not sign.
Jordan also has shown a tendency to prefer specific types of players, mainly ground ball pitchers and athletic position players. So what did he and his staff do this year?
