As today is the final day for teams to sign their 2011 draft picks, we should be getting news later today on if the Rays have signed their top draft picks Taylor Guerrieri and Mikie Mahtook. So to kick off this Monday morning, I've pulled together a bunch of links from Rays Prospects to get us thinking back on the draft:

  • 2011 Rays Signing Board -- Here's a list of all the Rays' picks and signings so far. As you can see, the Rays have signed 10 of their first 14 picks in this year's draft, and six out of their 10 first-round picks. Their four first-round picks that haven't signed yet are Taylor Guerrieri, Mikie Mahtook, Tyler Goeddel, and Grayson Garvin.
  • If you're looking for some stats for each of the players the Rays have signed so far, here's the list for hitters and pitchers.
  • Baseball America released their 'Best Tools' rankings for this season, and Doug Milhoan summarized the rankings for all players in the Rays' organization. Who the heck has a better pickoff move than James Shields? And wow, Hak-Ju Lee cleaned up.
