Helping the Rays accomplish their postseason goal are players called up from the team’s minor league affiliates in September. This includes pitcher Enny Romero, who came up and had a very impressive start in his major league debut against the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday.
Romero was available to the Rays, due to the season already being over for its minor league affiliates.
The Rays saw some great team performances from its farm teams, including three playoff appearances.
The Triple-A Durham Bulls won the Governor’s Cup, before falling to Omaha in the Triple-A National Championship.
Behind these great team performances were individual efforts that are also worth rewarding.
Here are my selections for the 2013 Minor League awards for the Tampa Bay Rays.
