Yesterday there was a request to a follow up from the 2008 draft for the Rays. This should provide a brief glimpse into how the players are doing this year accompanied by R.J.'s post-draft analysis from 2008. This first installment will focus on the players drafted who are currently positional players for the Class A Bowling Green Hot Rods:

Not on the map to start the season, Jefferies has had a tremendous junior campaign and has been steadily moving up the ladder all year. A terrific contact hitter who almost never strikes out, he hasn't shown much power. Defensively, he's pretty good, though the arm is fringy. Whichever team sees more arm or more power in the future will likely be the one to take him

"And here's the other half of the Beckham middle infield. If nothing else this is the protection to keep Tim away from tattoo parlors in Bradenton."
