Stock Up, Stock Down for Orioles' Top 10 Prospects for Week of July 1
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

It was a rather average week for the Baltimore Orioles' minor league affiliates, as only the Aberdeen IronBirds of the Short-Season-A New York-Penn League had a winning record on the week, going 6-1.

The Norfolk Tides of Triple-A and the Frederick Keys of Advanced-A both finished the week 3-3. While the Delmarva Shorebirds of Single-A went 3-4 and the Bowie Baysox of Double-A went 4-5. Bowie played two separate double-headers this past week and failed to win a single game in either, which resulted in four of their five loses on the week.

In minor league transaction news, the Orioles acquired the first Italian-born-and-raised player to ever play in the majors, Alex Liddi, from the Mariners in exchange for an international signing bonus slot. Infielder Russ Canzler was designated for assignment to make room for Liddi on the 40-man roster, who was optioned to Triple-A according to The Baltimore Sun.

Top prospect Dylan Bundy remains absent from the report, as he will miss the remainder of the season recovering from Tommy John surgery. And while No. 3 prospect Jonathan Schoop and No. 8 prospect Branden Kline are inching closer to their return, they also remained sidelined this past week.

With that covered, here's your weekly update on the rest of the Orioles' top prospects.
