Baltimore Orioles Farm System Overview

The Baltimore Orioles have undergone a full rebuild over the past few years, and their efforts have resulted in one of the best farm systems in baseball. As a result, they currently have one of the most exciting rosters in the major leagues and a strong group of prospects working their way up the minor league ranks. With a deep well of positional players and a plethora of interesting arms, the Orioles have set themselves up to be contenders for many years to come.

As we continue to analyze each farm system, it's important to note the criteria we use to evaluate the players. Many of the scouting reports you'll encounter on this site incorporate information from industry sources, as well as our observations from roughly 15 years of writing about prospects and watching hundreds of games ourselves. For prospects slated to pitch, we use the classifications of MIRP for multi-inning relief pitchers and SIRP for single-inning relief pitchers. Additionally, the ETAs listed (which stand for Estimated Time of Arrival) generally correspond to the year a player needs to be added to the 40-man roster to avoid being made eligible for the Rule 5 draft. Manual adjustments are made when appropriate, but this is our guiding principle.

Now, let's examine the O's farm system, with a few groupings of prospects included.
