How the Orioles' top prospects are faring

My colleague, Kevin Van Valkenburg, is doing a profile on Orioles rookie pitcher Zach Britton that should be on our website later and will be in Tuesday's edition of The Baltimore Sun so I urge you guys to check that out. It also seems to be an appropriate time to update everyone on the performance so far of the Orioles' top 10 prospects, at least according to Baseball America. I'm hoping that the update will become a semi-regular feature here on Insider. All stats are through Sunday:

1. Manny Machado, 18, SS (Single-A Delmarva): .276 avg. (16-for-58), 0 HRs, 8 RBIs, 4 2Bs, 2 3Bs, 10 BBs, 9 Ks, 1 SB.
