A number of the Oriolesí top prospects including Adam Hall reported to the Ed Smith Stadium complex in Sarasota, Florida for four weeks of instruction.
The Orioles could use the Instructional League to help them make decisions on the 40-man roster.
The Orioles have a few prospects who are trying to convince the team that they should be protected.
One is infielder Hall, who was the teamís second-round pick in 2017. Hall had a solid year at Delmarva in 2019, hitting .298 with five home runs, 45 RBIs, and a .780 OPS.
This past season was more challenging for the 22-year-old, who was born in Bermuda but raised in Canada. Hall hit .248 with three home runs and 27 RBIs and struck out 100 times in 81 games at Aberdeen.
