Baseball America weighs in on O's prospects

When Baseball America published its list of the Orioles’ top 10 prospects this week, the only question was whether pitcher Dylan Bundy or infielder Manny Machado would top the list. That honor went to Bundy, who was the club’s top draft choice this past June. Machado was No. 2, and infielder Jonathan Schoop was No. 3.

Here’s the rest of their list:

4. Parker Bridwell , RHP

5. L.J. Hoes, OF/2B

6. Nicky Delmonico, 3B/1B

7. Ryan Flaherty, IF/OF

8. Jason Esposito, 3B

9. Xavier Avery, OF

10. Dan Klein, RHP

Nothing terribly surprising here, but what exactly does it say about the player development system that Dan Duquette inherited when the player the Orioles picked in this year’s Rule 5 draft -- a guy left unprotected by the Cubs -- immediately registers as one of your top prospects?
