  • Orioles' Jackson Holliday: Handling High-A

    Holliday is slashing .359/.488/.612 with four home runs, nine steals, a 20.2 percent strikeout rate and a 19.4 percent walk rate in 29 games for High-A Aberdeen. Holliday wasted no time this season throwing his hat into the ring for best prospect in baseball, as he has now dominated Single-A (230 wRC+) and High-A (195 wRC+) and won't turn 20 until December. The most notable skill development for Holliday relative to preseason scouting reports is that he has been clocked as a plus-plus runner this year. He has stolen 12 bases on 17 attempts in 43 games and projects as a five-category superstar in the majors.

  • Orioles' Jackson Holliday: Dominant at Single-A

    Holliday is slashing .404/.533/.681 with two home runs, three steals, 11 strikeouts and 13 walks in 60 plate appearances for Single-A Delmarva. The No. 1 overall pick in last year's draft couldn't be having a more impressive statistical start to the year, as his 45.2 percent hard-hit rate is also an elite figure, especially for a 19-year-old shortstop. Holliday is looking like a future superstar, and he could get a bump to High-A in the coming weeks.

  • Orioles' Jackson Holliday: Invited to MLB spring training

    Holliday has been invited to the major-league side of Orioles camp this spring. Holliday has just 20 games of rookie ball and the low minors under his belt after being selected as the top pick in the 2022 Draft, but the O's want to get a look at him this spring before he begins his first full pro season. Obviously, the 19-year-old isn't going to break camp with the big club, with a return to A-ball to start 2023 likely. Colton Cowser and Jordan Westburg will join Holliday among Baltimore's top prospects in major-league camp this spring.

    Holliday has hit .194/.342/.226 through his first eight games for Single-A Delmarva. He played eight games in rookie ball before that and outclassed the competition, hitting .409/.576/.591 with a homer, three steals and a 10:2 BB:K. Although Single-A has been a greater challenge so far, it's obviously a small sample, and it helps that Holliday has continued to show impressive plate discipline (7:8 BB:K). The 2022 draft's first overall pick has as much upside as anyone in the minors.
