    Other Orioles Prospects To Watch

    In their organizational reviews, Keith Law / ESPN ranked the O’s system 24th overall, and Baseball America ranked the O’s 21st.

    Including Orioles Hangout, here are 6 different sources with their listings of the O’s top prospects.

    In these organizational reviews, the following 16 players are found in the various Top 10 lists:

    1) Machado, 2) Britton, 3) Klein, 4) Givens, 5) Avery, 6) Hoes, 7) Schoop, 8) Adams, 9) R. Berry, 10) Pelzer, 11) Hobgood, 12) Mahoney, 13) Erbe, 14) Narron, 15) Bridwell, 16) Bundy

    The list below omits those 16 prospects, as well as four players that started the year at AAA (Reimold, Bell, Snyder, and Patton). What I am focusing on are the other players in the system that interest me. Some of these players are nothing more than organizational depth, some are players that could emerge, and several may not get the opportunity to play full-season ball in ’11.
