2020 Baltimore Orioles Instructional League Roster

The Orioles included 55 players in their instructional league, which began Oct. 5 in Sarasota, Fla. The roster was highlighted by 15 of the team’s Top 30 Prospects. Among the group who made the cut was catcher Adley Rutschman (No. 1), righthander Grayson Rodriguez (No. 2) and lefthander DL Hall (No. 3).

Baltimore also included five of its six draftees from the 2020 draft—shortstops Jordan Westburg and Anthony Servideo, outfielder Hudson Haskin, third baseman Coby Mayo and righthander Carter Baumler.

The majority of the players on the roster did not spend time at the alternate site, excluding Rutschman, Hall, Rodriguez and shortstops Gunnar Henderson and Terrin Vavra—all of whom were late additions at the site.

The only surprising omission was outfielder Heston Kjerstad, the No. 2 selection in the June draft. Orioles general manager Mike Elias told the Baltimore Sun Kjerstad is absent because of an "undisclosed medical, non-sports related reason."
