Warning: players who appear in our live prospects listing, but are ranked near the very bottom of the list, may only appear in this position because their records have only become visible in the past few days and are still awaiting update. They may also only appear because they were once ranked higher and still technically qualify. As a side-effect of our automated processes, the end of the publicly-visible list also collects longshots, underdocumented signees, recently-retired players, foreign players unlikely to enter MLB, near-busts and other extreme dark-horse candidates. It does not mean that there are not 'better' prospects, only that better prospects in our system lack enough accurate data and/or scouting inputs to become visible at this time. Always read the detailed information and consult other sources before drawing conclusions about prospect viability, and never, ever, ever treat a 'ranking' alone as if it's meaningful.

A long-time minor leaguer who could step up to help the Orioles in the near future, Zach Clark is a stocky righthander who possesses a shiny 3.68 ERA across seven minor league seasons. Splitting 2012 between AA and AAA, Clark struck out 98 but walked 54 in 168 innings of work (26 starts). While he could work out of the back end of Baltimore's no-aces rotation, he's more likely to see work as a spot starter or middle reliever in 2013.
