Drafting and the Rays

Raysdrafts_medium

MLBers - Simply put, players who are, or have been in the majors. I did not set an innings or plate appearances limit, so Reid Brignac and Carl Crawford are weighed equally. I did not count Jason Hammel twice.

T10 Rounds - Pretty self explanatory, these are the players selected in the first 10 rounds of the draft. Not just the Rays top 10 picks.

With Rays - This is to say with the Rays when they debuted, not currently with the Rays.

Now, I know some people prefer cold and hard data, so here are the tables with this same information. Note: "Total" is the amount of players drafted that year.

Year MLBers T10 With Rays Total
1996 8 2 5 97
1997 8 4 5 92
1998 6 3 4 47
1999 7 4 5 50
2000 5 2 4 47
2001 9 5 7 50
2002 6 5 2 50
2003 5 2 3 50
2004 4 3 4 50
2005 0 0 0 50
2006 1 1 1 50
2007 1 1 1 50

For those too lazy to add those columns up, here are the totals:

MLBers T10 With Rays Total %
60 32 41 683 8.8

Take 2006 and 2007 out of the equation and we get...

MLBers T10 With Rays Total %
58 30 39 583 9.9

It's hard to evaluate this information. I don't know the league average over these years, and while the raw numbers look poor, hitting on  ~10% of your draft picks seems fair.
