Comments on Sickles Os Sleeper picks: Brandon Cooley and Ashur Tolliver

5. Baltimore Orioles (4*)- The fact that the system remains this strong after graduating a slew of prospects to the big leagues in 2009 is a very good sign for Oriole fans. The system is thin on position players, but I like Snyder and Bell. The system also features a lot of players in the high minors (although that is not a bad thing). I liked the Orioles' 2009 draft, and it will be very important that those players progress to fill in some of the holes in the lower minors. I think this system has more depth than it is given credit for, but the Top 7 is what makes it an above-average system. The Orioles totaled 12 players in the top 150 (1 A, 3 B+, 3 B, 3 B-, 2 C+). System Sleeper: Aaron Wirsch- The Orioles' 7th round pick in 2009 had a great pro debut. He's got a big time curve, and the frame to grow into some velo.
