Coming into the season, the Orioles had one of the worst farm systems in baseball, according to Baseball America.

About a third of the way into the season, they’re starting to work their way up the rankings, thanks to the stellar play of Manny Machado, Jon Schoop and Tyler Townsend. Not to mention the usual consistency from Josh Bell, Matt Angle and a cadre of young pitchers.

The O’s improved the system even more this past week with the First-Year Player Draft.

Not only did they select arguably the top high-school pitcher of the past decade in Dylan Bundy, but they also filled their farm system with some polished college pitching that should help out greatly.

It was a very good couple of weeks for some of the O’s top players. Schoop was amazing…again, while Dylan’s older brother Bobby continued his prospect ascension.

Let’s check out who the top and not-so-top prospects were for the Orioles over the past week and a half.
