Rays prospects and minor leagues: Durham adjusts to life with just 3 top 100 prospects

New, 15 comments

Without Wander Franco, the Bulls will be playing shorthanded with just seven of the team’s top 30 prospects.

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays-Workouts Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports

As MLB.com’s Adam Berry noted, Wander Franco had been playing a little more third base in the past week. He also essentially stopped playing second base. That doesn’t guarantee anything, but I would imagine the organization was trying to prepare him for what he would be doing in the majors.
