SS - BAL - MiLB
Jordan Westburg, the 30th overall selection out of Mississippi State, signed a slot-value deal with the Orioles.
Westburg figures to be the Orioles' starter at shorstop or third base in a couple years. While his hit tool is still developing, he has league-average power and possesses above-average speed.
The Baltimore Orioles have selected Mississippi State SS Jordan Westburg with the No. 30 overall pick in the 2020 MLB Draft.
The Orioles announced Westburg as a shortstop but many scouts think he'll wind up as a third baseman. He strikes out a lot but makes hard contact when he is able to get the bat on the ball. After taking Heston Kjerstad in the first round, Baltimore continues building this draft class via college position players.
