Baltimore Orioles: Power Ranking The O’s Top 10 Prospects By Excitement Level
#4. RHP, Grayson Rodriguez
Joining DL Hall at the MLB Futures Game this July will be the Orioles top-ranked prospect by MLB Pipeline Grayson Rodriguez. Rodriguez was the Orioles first round selection with the 11th overall pick in the 2018 MLB Draft.
Rated as the 53rd best prospect in all of baseball Rodriguez has had a dominant 2019 season at Low-A ball with the Shorebirds. He’s posted an ERA of 2.21 ERA in 11 starts posting a 7-1 record and has held opposing hitters to a .179 average against.
Rodriguez is the pitcher many hope will be the ace of the future for the Orioles. Though he will be knocked from the top prospect spot once Rutschman and Henderson are added there’s’ no pitcher in the Baltimore system that should generate more excitement.
Every time he takes the ball in the minors is already turning into must-see T.V., and the Orioles can only hope that will be the same with even more excitement when he reaches the major league level.
