Candidates: Jake Hager, Parker Markel, Derek Dietrich, Tyler Goeddel, Oscar Hernandez, Alex Colome, Taylor Guerrieri, Drew Vettleson, Josh Sale, and Ryan Brett.
Jake Hager: Selected by the Rays in the first round as their 3rd pick, Hager provides solid tools all around as a dynamic SS prospect. (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=hager-000jak)
Parker Markel: Markel was selected by the Rays all the way back in the the 39th round. As a pitching prospect, Markel offers a combinations of great stuff and encouraging command. However, his results were not as encouraging as the scouting reports. (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=markel001par)
Derek Dietrich: A SS prospect from the 2010 draft, Dietrich offers enticing power from a SS. However, he may need to move off of SS and he was a little old, in prospect terms, for his league. (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=dietri002der)
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. (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=hernan002osc)
Alex Colome: Colome has a plus fastball and a developing curve and changeup. His command still needs some work. (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=colome001ale)
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.
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. (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=vettle001dre)
Josh Sale: A hyped up first round pick from the 2010 Rays draft, Josh Sale performed poorly in his first pro year at Princeton, with rumors of swing issues (I don't know how accurate they are). He still has raw power though. (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=sale--001jos)
Ryan Brett: A third round pick from the 2010 draft, Brett performed well during his first year. He has a good all around game, but his defense at 2B needs work. If he has to move, CF would probably be the spot. (http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=brett-001rya)
