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 have caught my eye and that I am interested in; I thought I would use this platform to help other Orioles fans get to know them as well as follow their progress. I am continuing that work this season and have added a few new names to the list; two players from last year’s report are now with other organizations. In addition, I asked readers to suggest who they would be interested in following daily and based on those suggestions, I added a reader’s section below. I hope you enjoy this effort and that you will provide feedback on it; I am open to any suggestions on how to make it better as well as any criticism of it. Let’s engage in a dialogue about the players; they are the future of the Orioles.
This season, I am highlighting five Baltimore Orioles minor league prospects; these players are personal favorites of mine. The players are C Ben Breazeale (NR per MLB Pipeline), OF Cedric Mullins (#6), RHP Yefry Ramirez (#17) and 3B Jomar Reyes (#19).
In an article for Baby Birdland, I explained the reasons why I am watching one of them (Reyes); one (Breazeale) was my first face-to-face interview for Baby Birdland. I also had the opportunity to conduct a face-to-face interview with another (Mullins) early this season. Each day here you will find a summary of their game performance.
Thanks for reading!
