#1. C, Adley Rutschman
The most exciting Baltimore Orioles prospect is undisputedly catcher Adley Rutschman. Baltimore selected the catcher from Oregon State with the first overall pick of this year’s draft, and many are calling him the most exciting prospect in baseball since Bryce Harper was drafted first overall by the Nationals in 2010.
Rutschman had two incredible college seasons for the Beavers in his three-year college carer. In 2018 he hit .408 with 83 RBI’s and nine home runs. In the 2018 College World Series, he recorded a remarkable 17 hits as he helped guide the Beavers to their third college world series championship.
In 2019 he showed even more power hitting 17 home runs and hit to an even higher average of .411. Opposing hitters feared Rutschman so much so that in the 2019 NCAA Tournament the Duke Blue Devils intentionally walked him with the bases loaded.
As great as he is at the plate, he also has an excellent arm and great instincts behind the plate.
Rutschman has the potential to be one of baseball’s top players once he reaches the majors. Every at-bat he has in the minors will be closely watched as fans count down the days until he reaches the majors.
