Hello Orioles fans, here is my prospect report for Sunday, April 15th, 2018.
BACKGROUND: Last season I began the Prospect Report in an effort to highlight the daily performances of several Baltimore Orioles’ minor league players. They were all players that I thought highly of and was interested in, so I thought I would use this platform to help other Orioles fans get to know and follow them as well. I am continuing that work this season and I have added a few new names to the list. In addition, I asked the readers to suggest who they would be interested in following daily. Based on those suggestions, I have added a reader’s section below. I hope you enjoy the effort and provide feedback on it. Let’s engage in a dialogue about the players; they are the future of the Orioles.
Thanks for reading!
This season, I am highlighting five Baltimore Orioles minor league prospects; these players are personal favorites of mine.
