    Top pitching prospect Grayson Rodriguez aiming to become Orioles' next young impact player

    BALTIMORE- Over the past couple of years, the Baltimore Orioles have been atop the rankings when it comes to prospects. Pitchers and catchers report to Sarasota, Florida for Spring Training on February 15, and many expect Rodriguez to be in the starting rotation when the Orioles open the regular season in Boston. Rodriguez, the Orioles' 11th overall draft pick in 2018, started last season in Triple-A Norfolk with aspirations of being called up to the Big Leagues.


    Orioles' Terrin Vavra hopeful to be first base option; Heston Kjerstad 'for sure' believes he can reach majors in 2023

Aware Baltimore is looking for a left-handed-hitting complement to Ryan Mountcastle at first base, Vavra focused this offseason on “being able to play everywhere,” he said at Saturday's happy hour to close the day's Birdland Caravan events.

When the trade happened, the O's sent infield prospect Darell Hernaiz - their fifth- or sixth-best infield prospect, depending on who you ask - to Oakland for major leaguer Cole Irvin and minor league pitcher Kyle Virbitsky.
