Baltimore Orioles Top Prospects: Who's Hot and Who's Not, July 15th
Former first-round pick Billy Rowell didn't make this list, but as a side-note, he is hitting .471 for the Orioles GCL squad.

It's been a very busy month for the Orioles farm system.

The organization saw two of their top prospects named to rosters for the Futures Game in Manny Machado, who suited up for Team USA, and Jonathan Schoop, who saw some action at second base for the World Team.

The system has also had to deal with a ton of injuries, which has necessitated some major restructuring of the minor league rosters. 

Further complicating the farm system's progress has been the lack of any kind of consistency from the big league club's pitching staff. Shuttles have been running back and forth from Triple-A Norfolk to Baltimore on a daily basis, sometimes twice-a-day!

Luckily, the thinning out of the farm system, which has been exacerbated by the elimination of the team's affiliate at Bluefield, has allowed some lesser prospects to shine, and you'll see many of them highlighted here.

So, let's get into it, the hottest Orioles prospects for the end of the month of June and the early parts of July.
