When Cuban outfielder Dariel Alvarez arrived in Bowie last year for the last few weeks of the Baysox season, manager Gary Kendall and hitting coach Butch Davis saw a player who was trying to fit a season's worth of slugging into a couple of home stands. With a calm off-season and a sense of comfort gained with the staff in Bowie, Alvarez has become one of the Orioles' top hitting prospects and, in one scout's eye, one of the best sleeper prospects in all of baseball. “He certainly isn't a finished product,” Kendall said last week . “He has good nights, he has bad nights, occasionally.

BOWIE -- Sometimes, numbers can deceive. Just ask Double-A Bowie catcher Michael Ohlman, whose .211 batting average looks like a disappointing letdown from a .313 average and Carolina League Player of the Year honors at High-A Frederick last season. But Ohlman, 23, was hitting just .181 a month ago, and the Orioles' 11th-round pick in 2009 has found his footing since then -- both at the plate and behind it. He had a six-game winning streak snapped after going 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against Richmond at Prince George's Stadium.

As a first base prospect, Christian Walker understands what it will take for him to succeed at the highest level. It's not enough to be a hitter for average in a position filled with big-boppers, even in today's faster game. All Walker has done this season in Double-A Bowie to prove he belongs is lead the Eastern League with 14 home runs, a total that has put him among the best sluggers in the minors and helped reinforce his belief that such power existed in his bat. “As a corner guy, typically they like to see a lot of power, or at least you drive in a lot of runs,” Walker said.

Trey Mancini was one of several members of last year's Aberdeen IronBirds to enter his first full season with high expectations. After a slow April, the eighth-round draft pick out of Notre Dame has begun to deliver on his promise with Low-A Delmarva. Mancini hit .245 with a .629 OPS in the first month of the season, but he has raised his season average to .302/.356/.372 with one of the strongest May performances in the system. Mancini has hit .372/.402/.449 with five extra-base hits in 20 games this month for the Shorebirds, who are 24-21 and eight games behind a ridiculously good Hagerstown team.

Orioles pitching prospect Eduardo Rodriguez will return from the disabled list Thursday against Akron, joining a a Double-A Bowie rotation that has pitched well in his absence. Rodriguez has been on the disabled list with a knee injury, and he made just three starts before he was shut down. When he did pitch, Rodriguez was nowhere near the form he displayed last year. Rodriguez was 1-2 with a 6.75 ERA and a WHIP of 1.50 before the injury. Rodriguez, 21, burst onto the prospect scene in 2013 with a combined 10-7 record and a 3.41 ERA between Bowie and High-A Frederick.

He's a West Coast prodigy, but California Chrome's roots reach deep into Maryland. Both the dam and one grand-dam of the Preakness favorite were foaled and raised on a 70-acre farm in Chestertown. The owners, Tom and Chris Bowman, couldn't have imagined the outcome of their breeding before California Chrome won the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago. "This is a storybook thing that we're watching right now," said Tom Bowman, 72, a horse reproduction veterinarian who owns Dance Forth Farm.

Jonathan Schoop isn't the only member of his family garnering attention in the Orioles system. His older brother, Sharlon, is batting .306 with a pair of home runs for Double-A Bowie. Schoop, 27, joined the Orioles organization last offseason after seven minor league seasons with the San Francisco Giants and one with the Kansas City Royals farm system. While he appears to have topped out at Double-A, the infielder is finding his stroke in Bowie's hot lineup. He's batting .317 with a home run and five RBIs in his past 10 games, and has an .821 OPS in 24 games for the Baysox.

Christopher Doyle says he doesn't think there is anything wrong with being gay, but he also believes he can help children and others rid themselves of "unwanted same-sex attractions" through therapy sessions in a tidy suburban home in Bowie. That has made the licensed psychotherapist the target of intense criticism over the years - so much so, he says, that he closely protects the address of the International Healing Foundation, the nearly 25-year-old nonprofit he runs. "Unfortunately, we get targeted by activists," Doyle said in the home on a recent morning.
