Stock Up, Stock Down for the Baltimore Orioles' Top-10 Prospects for Week 10

0 of 10

    GAIL BURTON/Associated Press

    The Baltimore Orioles (32-31) have been lingering around the .500-mark recently and have been receiving polarizing results from their personnel, such as recently-called-up-prospect Kevin Gausman's gem of a start on Saturday and Ubaldo Jimenez's catastrophic start on Sunday.

    With the struggles of front-of-the-rotation starters Chris Tillman and Jimenez, the Orioles may dip down into its farm system for some help in order to solidify the rotation or possibly to transition the unit into a six-man staff.

    With that being said, here is a stock report regarding the performances of the Orioles' top-10 prospects over the past week and whether those performances have helped, hindered or had no effect on their respective personal stock.

    Sisco had a four-game hitting streak stretching from Thursday to Sunday and drew a walk in three of those four contests.

    Michael Ohlman has been nearly as effective as his counterpart Sisco at the plate this past week, as he reached base safely at a .364 clip and slugged a solid .400.

    Ohlman also had a four-game hitting streak of his own, including two multi-hit performances in back-to-back contests on Thursday and Friday.

    Overview

    Wright was rocked yet again by the opposition in his last start on Friday, giving up seven earned runs on 10 hits, which included three home runs.

    This latest start marks the fourth consecutive game in which Wright has given up at least five earned runs.

    So far on the year, Wright has only logged one start that lasted more than six innings.

No. 7 Prospect: Henry Urrutia, OF, Triple-A Norfolk

    Overview

    Henry Urrutia is still recovering from sports hernia surgery, which he underwent back in the beginning of May.

    Per the Baltimore Sun's Eduardo A. Encina, Urrutia is expected to miss six to eight weeks retroactive from the surgery date, so a timetable of early- to mid-July is a good estimate as to when Urrutia will be able to begin performing baseball activities again.

    Overview

    Tim Berry was brought up to the major league club earlier last week as an emergency bullpen arm in case the Orioles turned to the pen early and depleted the rest of their proven arms.

    After not having been needed, Berry was then optioned back down to Double-A on Saturday to make room for Kevin Gausman on the roster.

    Berry returned to action for Double-A Bowie last night and had a quality start, going six innings, striking out four and allowing three earned runs.

    Overview

    Jonathan Schoop has been struggling over the past week, hitting a meager .083 and getting on base at the same rate.

    Despite heating up in the middle of the Houston-Texas road trip, Schoop has cooled off considerably since then and has just one hit in the past seven days.

    Overview

    In Hunter Harvey's latest start last night, the young phenom was roughed up to the tune of five hits that accounted for six earned runs over just two full innings.

    The righty had issues with his command as well, issuing four free passes to opposing hitters.

    Harvey will look to rebound and get back to his normal self in his next start, as he has allowed at least five earned runs in each of his last two starts.

    Overview

    Since his return following a sprained knee injury that occurred while lifting weights, Eduardo Rodriguez has seen positive results, for the most part.

    He has given up no more than two earned runs in three of his four starts since returning from injury at the end of May, yet he hasn't accumulated a win in that time.

    In his latest start on Sunday, Rodriguez had a quality start, lasting 6.1 innings while striking out five batters and only allowing two earned runs.

No. 2 Prospect: Kevin Gausman, RHP, Baltimore Orioles

9 of 10

    USA TODAY Sports

    2014 Stats (MLB)

    2 GS, 1-1, 4.91 ERA, 3 BB, 8 K, 11.0 IP

     

    Overview

    Kevin Gausman was simply dominant in his second major league start of the year, which occurred on Saturday against the Oakland Athletics, helping out an overworked Baltimore bullpen by tossing seven innings, fanning six and giving up one lone run en route to his first major league win.

    This was a huge contrast to Gausman's first start of the year, when he gave up five earned runs in four innings pitched against the Detroit Tigers back in the middle of May.

    Hopefully, the Orioles retain Gausman on the major league roster, because the upside he brings to a battered rotation such as Baltimore's is immense.

    Overview

    Per Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com, Dylan Bundy is scheduled to make his first appearance of the year for an Orioles affiliate on June 15, as he is scheduled to start for Class A Short-Season Aberdeen.

    Bundy has been working his way back by pitching in extended spring training games. He had his best outing of the year on Tuesday, pitching four perfect innings.

    If all goes well and if there are no setbacks, it's a possibility that we may see Bundy in black and orange toward the end of the season during the Orioles' playoff push.
