@mpicardi @JustBBMedia Orioles system is a perfect representation of that. They have their one athletic boom or bust guy in the top 10 in Kyle Stowers (He's going to be ranked 10th in this list lol), but the rest of the guys are high floor, with still enough of a ceiling to get you excited.
@Orioles prospect Kyle Stowers, 23, was 2-for-5 on Thursday in the Arizona Fall League. He hit 27 homers combined this year for Aberdeen, @BowieBaysox and @NorfolkTides; was drafted out of Stanford in 2019 by Baltimore.

A Pat Valaika home run put Norfolk ahead in the 10th, but Cesar Valdez allows 3 in the bottom of the frame.
O's no. 11 prospect Kyle Stowers earned the promotion to Triple-A Norfolk earlier this week.
"I think he’s had a great year, and finishing at Triple-A and getting to play against that competition, regardless of how he performs there, is a huge win."
This week on the Orioles farm: Kyle Stowers breakout season earned another promotion; the co-pitchers of the year in 2019 had strong starts; some updates on standout trade acquisitions and more. https://t.co/hNnI0oFU6B
The middle of the Norfolk lineup is now
They have about 60 HR between the 3 of them.
That is ABSURD. Good luck.
Severino and Stewart should start saying their goodbyes. The logjam is coming in 2022 folks. https://t.co/x3mtKEs4XC

Johnny Rizer is closing out the month of August in grand style.
