Moving up to the Delmarva Shorebirds in 2017, the tall southpaw had a 3-9, 5.01 record. He tied for 7th in the O's farm system in losses.

In the second, though, he walked Robinson Chirinos and Carlos Pérez singled. He retired Diego Rincones and Alexander Palma then Ramón Flores singled in one run and Yonny Hernández singled in another, but Flores was thrown out on that play.

Luke Williams doubled in two, Jarren Duran tripled in another and then Todd Frazier hit a two-run homer to put it well out of reach at 10-1 before Seabrooke got Eric Filia looking at strike 3. His seven runs allowed led the tournament (though only two were earned), one ahead of Raúl Valdés, Anibal Sánchez and Erling Moreno. [5]
