The Complete 2012 Rays Season Preview

Over the past month, we've been slowly publishing our Season Preview pieces for the 2012 Rays. It's been a long process, but I believe we've had some really cool pieces in there, and hopefully each of the articles helped give you a bit of perspective about that player entering the season.

With the Rays kicking off the season yesterday, we managed to sneak in our final few player profiles juuuust in the nick of time. You can find the full season preview archive here, or you can access it anytime by clicking the "Season Preview 2012" tag in the "Sections" area of the left-hand sidebar.

Below the jump, I'll include links to our season preview pieces for every player currently on the Rays' 25-man roster. In case you missed any of the pieces or want to relive them, enjoy!
