PressBox's second annual Best Of  is here, featuring more than 60 honorees, including best upset, best newcomer, best comeback, best surprise and much more.

Best Orioles Prospect 

Lefty Keegan Akin was named the Jim Palmer Minor League Co-Pitcher of the Year in 2018 for his efforts with the Double-A Bowie Baysox.

Akin went 14-7 with a 3.27 ERA and struck out 142 hitters in 137.2 innings. He was also named the Eastern League Pitcher of the Year. Akin may have an opportunity to parlay his performance into an opportunity with the big league club in the near future, especially with the Orioles in a rebuilding phase.
