The No. 1 overall pick of the 2022 MLB Amateur Draft is one step closer to the big leagues.

The Baltimore Orioles promoted 19-year-old infielder Jackson Holliday to Triple-A Norfolk, where he will bat leadoff and play shortstop on Tuesday in his debut.

MLB Pipeline rates Holliday as the No. 1 prospect in all of baseball, despite his age. The son of former MLB outfielder Matt Holliday starred at Oklahoma State before being drafted first overall by Baltimore in July 2022.

Holliday began the season with stints at Class-A Delmarva and High-A Aberdeen before being promoted to Double-A Bowie. At Double-A, Holliday slashed .338/.421/.507 with three home runs, nine doubles, three triples and 15 RBIs over 36 games.

Over his three minor league stops in 2023, Holliday has batted a combined .333 with 10 homers, 26 doubles, nine triples and 66 RBIs.
