The Orioles have given strong indication that their prized just-out-of-college prospect will soon be sent to minor league camp and likely start the season at Double-A Bowie, but he can't be ruled out of anything at this point. He has impressed Showalter, and the Orioles have already shown the willingness to accelerate prospects if they think they're ready for prime time. He certainly seems to be, but he's more likely to show up this summer if he continues to pitch well.
