Infographic: Tampa Bay Rays Draft Picks By Location

As if his graphic previewing the Draft wasn't enough, Josh Frank is back for round two. Now that the draft is finished, Josh takes a look at where the Rays' most recent picks came from:

As you can see, the Rays followed their previous drafting patterns pretty darn closely. Texas bumped ahead of Arizona for number two on the list, and the Rays also took a good number of players from Florida. But nothing can top California -- the Rays love taking players from there (as do other teams), and they selected 11 players from there this year.

Also, it looks like the Rays chose a player from Maryland for the first time, and chose five players from the Northeast. That seems like more than normal, considering their past history with that region.
