SARASOTA, Fla. -- Jackson Holliday's major league debut with the Baltimore Orioles will have to wait.

The Orioles announced Friday they had reassigned Holliday to their minor league camp, meaning the No. 1 overall pick in the 2022 amateur draft won't start the season in the majors.

Holliday, 20, is the son of former seven-time All-Star outfielder Matt Holliday and is regarded as one of baseball's top overall prospects. Holliday made a strong case to make the major league roster this spring, going 6-for-14 with two homers, six RBIs and two steals in Grapefruit League action.
