Baseball America Top 10 Orioles Prospect List

Top Ten list here.  I'm guess BA see a full recovery for Patton.  Kam Mickolio over David Hernandez seems like a head scratcher, but I'll let the CC minor league experts debate that one. 

1. Matt Wieters, c
2. Chris Tillman, rhp
3. Brian Matusz, lhp
4. Jake Arrieta, rhp
5. Nolan Reimold, of
6. Brandon Erbe, rhp
7. Billy Rowell, 3b
8. Troy Patton, lhp
9. Brandon Snyder, 1b
10. Kam Mickolio, rhp

If they're to make a significant jump in the big league standings, Baltimore particularly needs its young pitchers to come through. The Orioles ranked 13th in the AL in ERA (5.13) in 2008 and head into 2009 with no proven big league starters behind Jeremy Guthrie, who's better suited for the middle or back of a rotation than the front.

Back of the rotation?  Ouch.  I'm not saying he's an ace but he's probably better than a lot of 4 or 5 starters.
