Baltimore Orioles — Adley Rutschman
Lifetime Stats (Minors): 4 HR, 26 RBI, 33 H, .254/.351/.423
Taken No. 1 overall in the 2019 MLB Draft, Adley Rutschman is the player Baltimore will build around moving forward. One of the best prospects in the game, Rutschman projects to be an elite catcher for years to come. While playing at collegiate powerhouse Oregon State, Rutschman slugged 28 HR, batted in 174 runs, and slashed .352/.473/.559 over three seasons.
A switch-hitter, the young catcher has an advanced approach at the plate — drawing more walks than strikeouts, while also capable of hitting for power to all fields. Defensively, Rutschman is elite. He calls a good game, is quick behind the dish, and has a cannon for an arm that limits the running game.
