Rays Top 10 Prospect Discussion

So the season's over, and top 10 lists are starting to come out. the system is tough to grade out this year. you have 2 guys that looked to be having years to solidify spots at the top getting injured (sss for hjl), a couple of upper level pitchers with great stuff that could be destined for the bp, and BEXXXX.

here's an initial pass of who i'm considering for the top 10 (let me know if i missed someone):

-BEXXX

-TG

-HJL

-Colome

-Romero

-Shaffer

-Brett

-Toles

-Odorizzi

-Stanek

-Ciuffo

-Hahn

-Hager

-Snell

-Vettleson

-Kiermaier

-Oscar Hernandez

Of that list the definites are BEXXX, TG, HJL, Stanek, Romero, Colome, and Odorizzi. That leaves 3 spots for other 10 guys. i have a soft spot for hager because of his skillset and arl. toles seriously broke out and had arguably the best minor league season in the system. kiermaier gets a big bonus for his proximity to the majors and high floor. snell is a lefty with good stuff that strikes people, and hahn's stuff is supposed to be great too. it isn't wise to bet against the rays developing pitchers.

any other thoughts?
