Orioles Tradable Minor League Players

Dan Connelly of the Baltimore Sun stated earlier this week that the two movable assets in the Orioles organization are outfielders L.J. Hoes and Xavier Avery.

Hoes, 21, was an All-American in high school and is one of the more athletic players in the organization. He hit .305/.379/.413 in 95 games with Double-A Bowie. He also played second base so there could be an issue on where they would place him. According to General Manager Dan Duquette, there are no known trades being worked on at the moment.

Avery stole 36 bases for Bowie in 2011 and increased his batting average 25 points from 2010. He has tremendous athleticism, but needs to display more of a consistent batting average. The Georgia native could be a player teams are interested in along with Hoes.

Dylan Bundy, Manny Machado, Jonathon Schoop and Parker Bridwell are the main prospects that are unmovable and won’t even be discussed. There aren’t many prospect options out there for teams to choose from with the Orioles. Don’t expect to see any mid-level to upper-level prospects traded anytime soon.
