Farm System Overview

The Baltimore Orioles have their catcher of the future in Chance Sisco and he could be ready to take over that role as soon as next season. His bat has always been ahead of his glove, but the 22-year-old has improved enough behind the plate to profile as an everyday guy.

Meanwhile, Ryan Mountcastle has turned heads at the plate this spring with a .313/.343/.545 line for High-A Frederick that includes 24 doubles and 12 home runs. The 20-year-old former first-round pick is still a work in progress at shortstop, and a move to left field is still a very real possibility, but it's looking more and more like his bat will play.

The O's got one of the biggest steals in this year's draft when D.L. Hall fell to them at No. 21 overall and he immediately becomes the team's top pitching prospect. He gives the system three top-tier prospects, but in terms of depth, it remains as thin as any in the league.

    

Prospect on the Rise: LHP Alex Wells (BA-25, MLB.com-17)

A 6'1", 190-pound southpaw out of Australia with limited projectability and middling stuff, Wells simply knows how to pitch. After a stellar debut last season, he's gone 4-4 with a 2.96 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and a 53-to-6 K/BB over 70 innings with Single-A Delmarva. His ceiling is as a back-of-the-rotation starter, but his pitchability makes him a safe bet to reach that.

And the O's would trade them for an established vet. Rumor has it they offered Trey M. out there a couple months ago.
