Joe Jordan to the Phillies: 10 Best Draft Picks By the O's Scouting Director

The Orioles are still in the process of finding a new general manager to replace Andy MacPhail, but they are now facing another front-office hole as their director of scouting, Joe Jordan, has been hired by the Philadelphia Phillies as their director of player development.
