2022 DRaysBay Community Prospect list results

We’re finished the top 30, but you have a chance to keep voting.

MLB: Chicago White Sox at Los Angeles Dodgers Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Previous winner

1B Kyle Manzardo (L/R, 6’1 205, 21 in 2022)

2021 statistics with Florida Coast League Rays: 50 PA, .349/.440/.605, 2 HR, 7 XBH, 8.0 BB%, 12.0 K%

In his debut, Manzardo looked very much like a polished college hitter crushing young pitchers. He showed a strong plate approach at Washington State before the Rays drafted him in the second round, and that carried over to the start of his pro career. His hit tool is his best, but his power improved throughout his college career and could be above average. He’s not much of an athlete and is limited to first base.
