Baltimore Orioles Top 10 Prospects, and When We'll See Them in the Majors

2012 was a sensational year for the Baltimore Orioles. In fact, it was a year of "not only."

Not only did they break a streak of 15 consecutive losing seasons...

Not only did they challenge for a division crown into the final week of the season...

Not only did they produce the team's first playoff appearance since the days of Cal Ripken and Brady Anderson...

Not only did they restore pride to the city of Baltimore through winning baseball...

Another thing the Orioles managed to do was a have a great year developmentally. Down on the farm, they turned Dylan Bundy from a phenom into one of the most successful pitching prospects in the past 25 years.

Based off of instructional league play and his brief regular-season debut, they appear to have hit another home run with this year's first-round pick, Kevin Gausman.

Oh, and don't forget Manny Machado, who went from struggling down in Double-A to slugging two homers in only his second big-league contest.

Bundy, Gausman and Machado weren't the only O's farm-hands to put together fine campaigns, however. Several players had career years, and many of them make appearances on the Orioles' top 10 prospect list.
