Tampa Bay Rays' Top 10 Prospects: Rankings, Spring Forecasts
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports
Top prospect Wil Myers should become a fixture in the middle of the Rays lineup by June.

The Tampa Bay Rays' farm system improved virtually overnight this offseason, as the team acquired Wil Myers, Jake Odorizzi, Mike Montgomery and Patrick Leonard from the Kansas City Royals in exchange for James Shields and Wade Davis in early December.

With five prospects ranked in Prospect Pipeline’s top 100 for the 2013 season, the Rays' system is top-loaded with impact talent in the high minors. But even after the acquisition of Myers, the No. 4 overall prospect, the organization still lacks young, projectable hitters. Therefore, it wouldn’t surprise me if they dangled one or two of their more advanced pitching projects this season to address a deficiency at the major league level.

Either way, the Rays are in a unique position to reap the benefits of their strong prospect pool throughout the entire 2013 season.
