Notable Orioles Fallers

Hudson Haskin, OF

Haskin's 2023 was filled with injuries, leading to just 33 games played and a significant drop in the rankings. Haskin was ranked 16th in MLB Pipeline's top 30 in 2023, but he enters 2024 down 10 spots to 26th.

Even though Haskin fell down 10 spots in the ranking, he still put together a decent season in his limited time on the field. In 23 games with Triple-A Norfolk, Haskin sustained an OPS of .831 and recorded 22 hits. The big struggle for Haskin was the strikeouts, recording 34 in just 82 at-bats.

Frederick Bencosme, SS

Bencosme was ranked 22nd in the last top 30 ranking, after a season where he hit over .300 at just 20 years old in 2022. 2023 was a different story for the young shortstop, leading to a fall in the rankings to 28th.

Bencosme struggled to adjust to High-A pitching, resulting in a .657 OPS in 114 games. This can be attributed to his lack of power, which produced just a pair of home runs and a slugging percentage of .319 on the season. Even with the lack of power, Bencosme has shown good plate discipline (55 walks) and is a major stolen base threat (28 steals) going forward.
