Orioles tab high-upside arms on Day 2

BALTIMORE -- The Orioles continued to look for undervalued arms with high upsides during Day 2 of the Draft on Tuesday.

In the sixth round, the O's selected right-hander Jay Flaa from North Dakota State University. Standing 6-foot-3 and weighing 225 pounds, he went 1-1 with a 3.79 ERA in 14 appearances, striking out 54 over 35 2/3 innings. Flaa was the 193rd pick overall.

Round 7: RHP Gray Fenter, West Memphis (Ark.) High School
A Mississippi State commit, Fenter is the third right-hander taken by the Orioles and their fourth pitcher overall. Listed at 6-foot-1 and 210 pounds, Fenter's fastball is 88-93 mph, and he has a strong -- though not particularly tall -- build. Still, the high school pitcher has three solid pitches and is known as a great competitor.

"Fenter was a surprise for us in the seventh round," Orioles scouting director Gary Rajsich said. "We realized, talking to their advisors, that we were going to have the funds to do it. It's a big arm for us. Maybe a top-of-the-Draft, first day-type talent that we were able to get in the seventh round, so we were very excited about that."

Round 8: 1B Seamus Curran, Agawam (Mass.) High School
Built like a football player, Curran is listed at 6-foot-6 and 240 pounds, and the left-handed hitter is an all-power bat. A senior captain, Curran has been admired by scouts for his physical tools, though there is also the sense that the University of Rhode Island commit could go to college to improve his game. At the Perfect Game WWBA World Championship, Curran hit a ball 404 feet, according to the Perfect Game's website tracker.

"The ball coming off his bat just sounds different," Brian Rheault, Curran's high school coach, told ESPN.com earlier this year. "He took a round of BP in the cage [in Agawam High's gymnasium] the other day, and everybody stopped to watch -- kids from other sports came in. Because you could hear it. It's a different sound. It was incredible. That ball was cracking off the bat."

Round 9: RF Jaylen Ferguson, Arlington (Texas) High School
Ferguson is 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds and continues the Orioles' trend of a plethora of outfield options. The 18-year-old right fielder throws well and has a solid approach at the plate.

Round 10: LHP Reid Love, East Carolina
Tall and lanky, Love was senior co-captain of the American Athletic Conference Baseball Championship team. The All-Conference candidate was the Pirates' top starter and is 5-foot-11 and 195 pounds.
