Rays Community Prospect #2

With 100% of the vote, the top prospect honors go to Matt Moore.

1. Matt Moore (100%)

Candidates: Chris Archer, Alex Colome, Alex Torres, Taylor Guerrieri, Enny Romero, Mikie Mahtook, Tim Beckham, Drew Vettleson, Hak-Ju Lee, and Brandon Guyer.

Chris Archer: With a superb slider and fastball combo, Archer has very good stuff. However, his changeup lags behind and his command has been very poor. (

Alex Colome: Colome has a plus fastball and a developing curve and changeup. His command still needs some work. (

Alex Torres: Torres has electric stuff, with a good fastball, curve, and an excellent changeup. His delivery, while clean, is a bit high effort. (

Taylor Guerrieri: The Rays first pick in the 2011 draft out of high school, Guerrieri has a good fastball/curveball mix. He has no pro experience.

Enny Romero: Romero has a good fastball, a potentially plus curve, and a developing changeup.(

Mikie Mahtook: Mahtook was a first round pick in the 2011 draft. He plays in the OF and possesses good all-around tools. He has no pro experience, except some time in the AFL.

Tim Beckham: The first overall pick in the 2008 draft, Beckham is the heat of much debate. Some say he has plenty of tools while others doubt it. (

Drew Vettleson: The Ray's second first round pick in 2010, Vettleson put up a strong year in 2011. He is an all around player with solid defense and a good bat. (

Hak-Ju Lee: Lee was one of the players in the Matt Garza trade. While his bat should be solid, if not better, his defense at SS has been reported to be very good in the future. (

Brandon Guyer: Guyer has hit well despite being a little older for a prospect. He has solid tools across the board and should contribute for the Rays in 2012. (
