Baseball America issues Top 30 Rays Prospects

Justin O'Conner is well regarded by Baseball America - Jim Donten

Baseball America's Top 30 prospects is listed in their Prospect Handbook, which is published in hard copy and was sent out in the mail this week.

The list was sent to the publisher prior to the Alex Torres/Logan Forsythe trade that brought back quality prospects in RHRP Brad Boxberger, RHSP Matt Andriese, RHRP Matt Lollis, and INF/C Maxx Tissenbaum. It's reasonable to believe the former two may have challenged for the Top 30.
