Aberdeen IronBirds announce 2022 Opening Day roster

Just like the rest of the Orioles’ affiliate teams, the Aberdeen IronBirds have officially announced their 2022 Opening Day rosters.

Much like the other teams in this system, the IronBirds showcase a plethora of young talent loaded with names Oriole fans really need to be aware of going forward. The team includes five of the organization’s top-30 prospects to begin the season.

Colton Cowser, the O’s No. 4 prospect, joins this squad as probably the most well known prospect on this roster. Cowser was the Orioles’ first-round selection last year, and he has done nothing but amaze all of us since that day.

This roster is topped off by international infielder César Prieto, the O’s No. 12 prospect. Prieto was a large international signing this offseason for the Orioles (yes, you read international signing and Orioles in the same sentence). He looks to make a splash as he makes his professional debut.

Along with Prieto is a stacked infield made up of the O’s No. 7 prospect Coby Mayo and No. 11 prospect Connor Norby.

On the pitching side, keep an eye out for Jean Pinto and Carlos Tavera, who are both young studs entering High-A for the first time.

With that being said, let’s introduce the 2022 Aberdeen Ironbirds, led by first-year manager Roberto Mercado:
