I was at yesterday’s GCL Orioles game where they defeated the GCL Red Sox 11-4. Here are some notes from the game.
20 year old infielder Jonathan Schoop has risen fast through prospect rankings in the past two years.
22 year old L.J. Hoes has been one of the most pleasant surprises for the Orioles in 2012.

Breaking down Jonathan Schoop‘s swing by comparing stills from 2010 and 2011 side-by-side.
Bridwell threw 92-94 mph with movement and touched 95 mph throwing at a consistent arm slot and downhill.
Manny Machado has the skills to become a cornerstone, franchise player that plays one of the most crucial positions in baseball: shortstop.
Kipp Schutz was a 2009, 19th round selection out of Indiana University and was also drafted out of Evansville HS by the O’s in 2006.
Zach Britton has performed better than any other Orioles pitcher in spring training. Here’s a look at what makes him so special and what the future holds for the young lefty.
The Orioles are not big players on the international market, so when an international prospect emerges and flashes some potential, it’s a big deal. Obviously, Schoop still has a long way to go but like most international SS prospects, there is a lot of potential, and he’s relatively advanced for his age.
