The Baltimore Orioles are heading into the 2015 season with a less-than-below-average farm system after stud righty Kevin Gausman and second baseman of the future Jonathan Schoop shed their prospect labels this past year.

In addition to the loss of a highly ranked lefty in Eduardo Rodriguez, who was involved in a trade that netted reliever Andrew Miller from the Boston Red Sox, the Orioles are going to need to get a lot of value out of some of their prospects outside of the elite tier.

Top prospect Dylan Bundy is hoping to make a significant impact at the major league level this season, after being selected fourth overall in 2011. After several setbacks, Bundy needs an uninterrupted season in order for him to complete his development into a major league hurler.

All is going according to plan with fellow blue-chip Hunter Harvey, who dazzled in his first full professional season, compiling a 3.18 ERA with the Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds in 17 starts.

First baseman Christian Walker will be looking at securing a considerable amount of playing time at designated hitter this year, as it looks more and more likely that Steve Pearce will man left field with Chris Davis holding down first.

That leaves us with several prospects who no one has been talking about but could turn a few heads as early as this season.

Here’s a look into the most underrated prospects in the Orioles farm system right now, ranked in order of most major league ready.
