With the month of August coming to an end in just a few days, teams throughout MLB are considering who they would like to add from their minor league system to the parent club once rosters expand in September.
Teams with no chance at the playoffs will likely look to add some young talent and give them a taste of big league action. And while it wouldn't be surprising to see a contending team do the same, said teams would be less likely to offer a month-long tryout during a playoff race.
The Baltimore Orioles are one of those contending teams, and they'll certainly take advantage of the expanded rosters to add a couple more bullpen arms and bench players in order to keep the key guys fresh as they head to October.
While the team will add a couple veteran-types to help balance the workload through September (guys like Steve Lombardozzi), they may or may not add younger talent as well, like how they brought up Jonathan Schoop during the last week of the 2013 season.
What's more likely, though, is that many of the guys who are considered top prospects in the O's system won't be seeing the major leagues this September. For various reasons, O's fans shouldn't expect to see the following players at Camden Yards this season.
