Best Orioles Prospect 

Austin Hays

This past season, outfielder Austin Hays became the first player from the 2016 draft to play in the majors.

He was named the Orioles' top minor league player after batting .329 with 32 home runs and 95 RBIs at Single-A Frederick and Double-A Bowie. That performance earned Hays a promotion to the big leagues, where he hit .217 in 20 late-season games.

Hays enjoyed the perks of being in the majors, such as weight rooms and barbers at the ballparks. "No roommates anymore, either," he said.
