Today in this space we begin a two-part series sizing up the Orioles’ top ten draft picks from last June’s First-Year Player Draft.
Who better to analyze the players than the man who drafted them, O’s scouting director Joe Jordan. All the quotes in the article are from Jordan who took plenty of time for MASNsports.com to provide some interesting insight.
The O’s selected nine players in the top ten rounds. Not all have even played for the Orioles yet, and of those who have, most played briefly with either the Gulf Coast O’s, Bluefield and/or Aberdeen.
