Brand new Baby Rays, should I buy my Brendan McKay shirtsy now, and Vidal Nuno makes a triumphant return (to Durham).

The Rays were off yesterday, but there was still news as baseball kicked off day one of their annual amateur draft. The Rays had four picks in the first two rounds, included three in the top 40. With their three first round picks, they took speedy shortstop Greg Jones out of UNC Wilmington at #22, Texas high schooler RHP J.J. Goss at #36, and Campbell (North Carolina) University RHP Seth Johnson at #40. With their second round pick, they grabbed Texas A&M lefty John Doxakis at #61.

The Rays will continue refueling their stock of baby Rays in round two of the draft today. Meanwhile, the big boy Rays take on the Tigers in Detroit tonight in the first of a three game set.
