5. Baltimore Orioles (4*)- The fact that the system remains this strong after graduating a slew of prospects to the big leagues in 2009 is a very good sign for Oriole fans. The system is thin on position players, but I like Snyder and Bell. The system also features a lot of players in the high minors (although that is not a bad thing). I liked the Orioles' 2009 draft, and it will be very important that those players progress to fill in some of the holes in the lower minors. I think this system has more depth than it is given credit for, but the Top 7 is what makes it an above-average system. The Orioles totaled 12 players in the top 150 (1 A, 3 B+, 3 B, 3 B-, 2 C+). System Sleeper: Aaron Wirsch- The Orioles' 7th round pick in 2009 had a great pro debut. He's got a big time curve, and the frame to grow into some velo.

On Saturday, the Orioles didn't push Jim Johnson further than 2 1/3 innings and held Triple-A Norfolk pitcher Garrett Olson to 45 pitches to keep both in line to potentially start Tuesday and Wednesday against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Baltimore Sun Yippee. I'm psyched to see Olson up in the bigs.
