Orioles minor league preview: Bowie, Aberdeen, Delmarva chase Norfolk’s success

Tonight marks an exciting time for O’s prospect hounds. It’s opening night for three of the Orioles’ four full-season affiliates, as Double-A Bowie, High-A Aberdeen, and Low-A Delmarva begin their 2024 seasons (joining Triple-A Norfolk, which started last week).

While these three affiliates won’t put up the kind of high-octane, prospect-fueled power displays as their Triple-A brethren, there’s no shortage of talented youngsters littering the rosters of these clubs. Here’s a look at the break-camp rosters for Bowie, Aberdeen, and Delmarva and the players worth keeping an eye on.

Double-A Bowie Baysox

CATCHERS: Silas Ardoin, Samuel Basallo (#2 prospect per MLB Pipeline), Connor Pavolony

INFIELDERS: Frederick Bencosme (#27), TT Bowens, Collin Burns, Anthony Servideo

OUTFIELDERS: Dylan Beavers (#7), Jud Fabian (#12), John Rhodes (#23), Donta’ Williams

PITCHERS: RHP Trace Bright (#16), RHP Kyle Brnovich, RHP Keagan Gillies, RHP Dylan Heid, LHP Ryan Hennen, RHP Seth Johnson (#10), LHP Ryan Long, LHP Trey McGough, RHP Zach Peek, RHP Alex Pham (#24), RHP Logan Rinehart, RHP Houston Roth, RHP Kade Strowd, RHP Carlos Tavera, RHP Kyle Virbitsky, RHP Brandon Young

The headliner of Bowie’s roster is, of course, Basallo, a product of the Orioles’ 2020-21 international draft class who has since developed into one of baseball’s premier prospects.
