The answer to Monday’s trivia was James Shields, answered correctly by Brickhaus

Name the former or current Rays player based off an excerpt on him from Baseball America

With a quick bat, [Prospect] has hit for average while also flashing power and RBI potential as a pro. He has a good eye for a young hitter and should develop into a high on-base percentage guy with experience. [Prospect] is a good defensive third baseman with above-average range, arm and athleticism. To add versatility, he played center field in the Dominican League. [Prospect] hasn't been able to translate his bat speed into power yet, though that should come as his body fills out. He doesn't have great speed but also doesn't clog the bases

Hint - Reached the top 10 in his system twice, but stayed in the top 15 for five straight years
