The Orioles will be counting on their loaded Triple-A team as the season goes along

One of the most readily apparent signs of the talent in the Orioles organization is how loaded the Triple-A Norfolk Tides roster is going to be to start the season. More than half of the starting lineup could probably have MLB jobs on multiple teams and three of the starting pitchers are worth tracking as future big league prospects.

If you can believe it, that’s actually a less loaded Tides roster than we found this time a year ago. Last year’s Norfolk break camp roster had six MLB-wide top 100 prospects on it, and 10 of the 30 top Orioles prospects as judged by MLB Pipeline.
