The Baltimore Orioles (49-40) are finally in the driver’s seat, having reached first place in the AL East this past weekend.

After playing a doubleheader on Saturday and a 12-inning contest against the rival Boston Red Sox, the Orioles could look to the farm for some bullpen help to finish out the stretch before the All-Star break.

In fact, they already addressed the issue on Monday, optioning Kevin Gausman once again and calling up reliever Julio DePaula from Double-A Bowie.

Should DePaula struggle, the O’s might swap him out for another minor league arm until the bullpen arms are fully recovered from this past weekend’s marathon.

Here are the top 10 prospects and options the Orioles could call upon as reinforcements to the bullpen. In general, these prospects could get a call if a freak injury were to occur.
