Matt Bush: Bush was a former SS prospect and the top pick in the 2004 draft. However, with on and off the field issues, he spent some time out of baseball before converting to pitching. (

Brandon Martin: The Rays 4th first round pick in the 2011 draft, Martin is another SS prospect, possessing offensive potential and a strong defensive reputation. (

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. (

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. (

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. (
