The minor league baseball season is nearing it's end, as most of the minor leagues begin their playoffs in the beginning of September.
While a couple of the Orioles' affiliates have no chance for the playoffs—High-A Frederick (23-38) and Single-A Delmarva (22-41)—the rest of the minor league clubs have at least a shot to play some extra baseball.
The Norfolk Tides (Triple-A, 71-64), Bowie Baysox (Double-A 67-66) and GCL Orioles (Rookie 29-27) are all within reach of a playoff spot, while the Aberdeen IronBirds (Short Season-A 33-29) currently lead their division.
Prospects Dylan Bundy (No. 2) and Branden Kline (No. 8) will miss the remainder of the season with injury and will not be included on the update. No. 12 prospect Christian Walker is also out with a lower-back injury, so he will also be skipped.
Now, with that all sorted out, here's your weekly update on the Orioles' top prospects.
