Orioles Prospect Watch 2014
A look at how the Orioles' top prospects, according to Baseball America, and selected other minor leaguers performed in the 2014 season. Eduardo Rodriguez, the Orioles' No. 3 prospect heading into the season, was traded to the Boston Red Sox on July 31, so he no longer appears in the gallery. All statistics are through the end of the minor league season or Sept. 2 for the players in the major leagues.
