Rays News and Links

10. Simon Rosenblum-Larson, RHP, Rays (19th round)

An $85,000 signing from Harvard, Rosenblum-Larson had an excellent pro debut. Working out of the bullpen for short-season Hudson Valley and low Class A Bowling Green, Rosenblum-Larson posted a sparkling 62-9 K-BB mark in 38.2 innings with a 1.16 ERA. He’s a low-slot righthander who drops down to a low three-quarter, near sidearm angle, giving hitters an uncomfortable look with his low-90s fastball and a solid slider.

Highest riser: Hernandez

Hernandez began 2018 as the Rays’ No. 20 prospect, but was up to No. 7 by the end of the season. Now he’s jumping onto this Top 10 list for the first time after a year that saw him hit 21 home runs in his full-season debut while throwing out 36 percent of runners trying to steal.
