C.J. Riefenhauser: A 20th round pick in the 2010 draft, CJ had excellent numbers in a little over 100 innings at Bowling Green. However, reports indicate that he lacks an above-average pitch. (

Tyler Bortnick: A solid all around player, Bortnick offers limited upside and probably profiles more as a reserve. However, he has continuously player better than the scouting reports would lead you to expect. (

Marquis Fleming: One of the Rays best releif prospects, Fleming puts up impressive numbers despite a dull fastball. (


James Harris: A first round pick in the 2011 draft, harris has exciting tools. However, he is also extremely raw. (


Jeff Malm: A top pick in the 2009 draft, which has looked like a poor draft, Malm has good power and hitting ability. However, his defensive reports have been negative and he has to hit alot as he is a 1B. (


Russ Canzler: An older prospect, Canzler has some power and good hitting ability. His defense is limited. (


Ty Morrison: A speedy OF with the potential to gain some power, Morrison has plenty of physical upside. However, to this point, the baseball skills have no been there. (


Granden Goetzman: A high upside and well liked pick from the 2011 draft, Goetzman gives the

Rays a good all around prospect. (


Lenny Linsky: Linsky was an interesting pick, as he was drafted so high despite being a reliever. Despite that, he should prove a valuable pick; a guy who can move up the system quickly and offers closer upside. (


Tyler Goeddel: A first round pick from the 2011 draft, Goeddel recieved an overslot deal to keep him from college. His bat is his main current tool, as his defensive posistioning still isn't clear. However, his bat has a lot of potential if the scouting reports turn out to be true. He has yet to have pro experience.

Oscar Hernandez: In posting video game numbers, Hernandez has himself driving a hype machine. However, little is known about his actual talents besides for the numbers in a small VSL park. (
