"Tyler Wilson pitched a gem in the loss for Freder!ck, going seven innings and giving up just three hits with no walks and 10 strikeouts. Over his last two starts, Wilson has fanned 22 without a walk over 15 innings." __ Steve Melewski
Tyler Wilson was the Orioles' #10 pick in 2011 out of the University of Virginia. He went that low, in part, because his alternative to pitching in pro baseball was attending medical school.
Wilson had some trouble at Delmarva early this year but, at Freder!ck, he's started 18 times... 104 IP, 90 hits, 19 (count 'em) walks, and 104 strikeouts. His W-L record is 7-7, and he has a 3.72 ERA. Mike Wright is another Bowie starter to watch... along with some kid named Dylan Bundy.
I'll post this note from Rochs' lineup thread here since you and others like to whine about creating another thread. It seems to fit here.
"Seven Orioles farmhands are included on the Mesa Solar Sox roster in the Arizona Fall League: Pitchers Michael Belfiore, Chris Petrini, Clay Schrader and Mike Wright; catcher Brian Ward; infielder Jonathan Schoop; outfielder LJ Hoes."
As expected, Baseball America included Double-A Bowie pitcher Dylan Bundy on its 2012 minor league All-Star team.

Taken one pick after Bauer in last year's draft, Bundy spent most of the season with high Class A <Frederick, where he served as the Carolina League's youngest pitcher. Bookending that stint, he dealt 30 innings for low Class A Delmarva in which he allowed five hits and zero earned runs and then finished the year with three fine starts at Double-A. Bundy fell about eight innings short of qualifying for the minor league ERA title--he averaged 4.5 innings per start--but had he kept up the pace he would have ranked among the top 10 in ERA (2.08), WHIP (0.92) and strikeout rate (10.3 per nine innings).

The Orioles' instructional league is underway at the team's spring training home in Sarasota, Fla. There are 59 players listed on the instructional league roster with 31 pitches, five catchers, eight infielders, eight outfielders and seven players taking part in rehab.
Here is the complete O's instructional league roster:

The co-managers of the instructional league games will be Gary Kendall and Ryan Minor. Other coaches and instructors that will be there are Brian Graham, Rick Peterson, Mike Boulanger, Don Werner, Butch Davis, Milt May, Blaine Beatty and Einar Diaz.
Urrutia, the 25-year-old Cuban outfielder the Orioles signed to a $778,500 bonus, is listed on this roster, but he is not currently in Sarasota. Urrutia is still in Haiti, where he established residency after defecting from Cuba. He spent a few weeks at the Orioles' Dominican academy, but continues to wait to get a visa to allow him to travel to the United States.
Instructional league workouts will continue through Oct. 12 and the players do play games four or five times a week. The O's schedule of games there begins Sunday when they play Team Canada.
These workouts allow young players to get some specialized instruction and up close, hands-on work with the coaches after the minor league seasons have ended.
