Gone are the days when weekly newspaper stat lines and monthly issues of Baseball America were the only sources of information on a team's minor league players. A rising interest in fantasy baseball, the home team's future, and sadly, a cottage industry of autograph creepers have all led to a boom in minor league scouting reports and player stories online. Everyone wants to know who tomorrow's stars are, and the earlier you're in on someone, the more you can crow when he turns out to be a stud.

Continuing the seemingly neverending offseason look at baseball's best prospects from various experts, ESPN's Keith Law released his minor league system rankings Tuesday . It's "Insider" content on the ESPN website, but he has the Orioles ranked at No. 10. Very top-heavy, but a strong front five, all on the top 100, due in no small part to a string of four straight solid first-round picks since the Matt Hobgood fiasco. (Hobgood, the No. 5 overall pick in the 2009 draft, has a 5.05 ERA in his career and hasn't made it past Class A.)

Because I'm on the Ravens beat full-time during football season, it has been a long while since I wrote about baseball. But with the MLB's “hot stove” set to be fired up soon, I figured I'd write about the Orioles. Wait, what's that you say? The MLB offseason started a couple of months ago? Oh. Well, this is awkward… Anyway, there is good news for Orioles fans about a team that hasn't spent much money this offseason besides deals for their arbitration-eligible players. The Orioles continue to get positive reviews about the state of their farm system even after star third baseman Manny Machado has graduated from prospect status.

Projecting baseball's annual amateur draft is often tougher than the other major sports. And it's certainly a more daunting task to predict whom the Orioles will select with their top pick now that they're in the unfamiliarly late territory of No. 22. But that won't stop the experts from trying. Here's a look at what some of the national mock drafts are predicting for the Orioles' first-round selection Thursday night: ** ESPN's Keith Law has the Orioles taking Jacksonville right-hander Chris Anderson in version 3.0 of his popular mock.

Matt McPhearson is the outlier of his family, the ugly duckling of sorts. With a family of football players, the gridiron seemed like the obvious choice. Instead, McPhearson chose baseball, and Thursday night the speedy center fielder could become the first high school or college player from the state to be drafted in the first or second round of baseball's amateur draft since 2007. "It's a blessing," said McPhearson, who lives in Columbia and just finished his senior year at Riverdale Baptist School in Prince George's County.

The Orioles sure weren't timid in their approach to this year's non-waiver trade deadline. They kicked off the unofficial trading season with their deal for Scott Feldman, grabbed Francisco Rodriguez last week and then beat the deadline by minutes with a trade for Bud Norris on Wednesday . To get Norris from Houston, the Orioles gave up two in-state products, L.J. Hoes and Josh Hader, which may have given some fans pause about the move....

In each of the past four amateur drafts, the Orioles have selected in the top five of the first round, meaning they are exceptionally familiar with their current position. Don't look to that recent history, however, as a clue as to what the Orioles might do Monday night, shortly after 7 p.m., when they pick fourth overall. There are no discernible trends. The Orioles have been all over the draft board with their first pick since 2007. In the past four years, they have selected a high school hitter (Manny Machado, third overall, 2010)

In Dan Connolly's second-half preview , Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette makes it pretty clear that he won't move Dylan Bundy or Manny Machado for a rental player before the trading deadline. But there's no question teams will be asking the O's executive vice president about the organization's top two prospects. In his new Top 50 Prospects rankings published Thursday, ESPN's Keith Law ranks Bundy the No. 2 prospect in all of baseball and Machado No. 3. They're the only Orioles prospects in the Top 50, and they rank only behind Texas Rangers shortstop prospect Jurickson Profar.

Keith Law, the lead baseball writer for ESPN's Scouts Inc., has been critical of the Orioles' offseason moves, so I thought my readers might want to see what he had to say about the additions of Vladimir Guerrero and J.J. Hardy, the Matt Wieters debate and where the Orioles stand in the American League East. The last of my spring training Q&As with national baseball writers, here is my lengthy interview with Law, who previously worked with the Blue Jays as a special assistant to the general manager for more than four years: MV: You have criticized the Orioles for bringing in veteran players such as Vladimir Guerrero and Derrek Lee in the offseason.
