Dillon Tate

Popping back in to the pitching side of things really quick, Dillon Tate has had a long and winding road in his career so far. The former No. 4 overall pick in the 2015 draft has dealt with injuries and mechanical issues that derailed his once promising career. However, this spring has seen him take a nice step forward.

Tate has only made six appearances down at spring training, but he has yet to give up a run and, importantly, he has only walked one batter. While it is going to take more than a handful of spring training appearances to get his career back on track, it does seem like Tate has some things going his way heading into the 2024 season.

Coby Mayo

Lost in all of the big time performances from prospects on the 40-man roster competing for big league roster spots right out of camp has been the play of Coby Mayo this spring. While other guys on this list have gotten significantly more press than Mayo, make no mistake about it: Mayo has opened a lot of eyes and is going to be on the short list for getting called up in the not-too-distant future.

Not only has Mayo played in more games than any other Orioles player down at spring training, but he has also slashed .326/.426/.543 with eight extra-base hits. Mayo already made it to Triple-A last season, where he played well, and with his performance this spring, he could be back up playing with the big boys if there is a need at either of the corner infield spots in 2024.
