Additionally, our ratings reflect very little about a team's ability to sign or develop talent. They simply gauge how much talent is presently in its system. That's why we also like to look at which organizations have been most productive over the last three years. No one has generated more talent than the Rays. Tampa Bay has unveiled four-fifths of a starting rotation in two-time all-star David Price, Baseball America 2011 Rookie of the Year Jeremy Hellickson, Jeff Niemann and Wade Davis. The Rays also introduced Desmond Jennings, who may be a better version of Carl Crawford, as well as two semi-regulars (Reid Brignac, since-traded John Jaso) and a pair of relievers (Brandon Gomes, Jake McGee). With all of that talent arriving from the minors, Tampa Bay was able to make consecutive playoff appearances despite MLB's sixth-lowest payroll in the last two seasons."
