Orioles promote Jackson Holliday, baseball's No. 1-ranked prospect, to Triple-A Norfolk at age 19

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles have promoted top prospect Jackson Holliday to Triple-A Norfolk, another step in the 19-year-old shortstop's remarkable rise through the minors in his first full pro season.

Holliday is baseball's No. 1 prospect, according to MLB Pipeline, and he was the top pick in the 2022 draft. He made his Triple-A debut Tuesday night against Jacksonville, going 1 for 4 with a double and a walk in a 9-4 loss.

Holliday, the son of former big league outfielder Matt Holliday, played for Delmarva and Aberdeen at Class A this year, then hit .338 with 15 extra-base hits in 36 games for Double-A Bowie. He's part of a loaded Orioles farm system that already produced Adley Rutschman and Gunnar Henderson — two key players for the Baltimore team that has the best record in the American League.
