3 Top Prospects That Can Get the Tampa Bay Rays over the Hump Next Season
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports
Enny Romero allowed one hit over 4.2 innings in his major league debut.

The Tampa Bay Rays’ remarkable streak of four consecutive wins in an elimination game came to end on Tuesday night with a 3-1 loss to the Red Sox in Game 4 of the ALDS at Tropicana Field.

Tampa Bay was victorious in a must-win game against the Blue Jays at the end of the regular season, securing a share of the second wild-card spot. They then knocked off the Rangers on the road in the AL Wild Card tiebreaker to earn an official postseason berth and promptly took down the Indians (on the road) to reach the ALDS.

Facing a 2-0 deficit in the best-of-five series against the Red Sox, the Rays extended their winning streak in elimination games to four with Jose Lobaton’s walk-off home run in Game 3 of the ALDS. However, that would be it for both the streak and Tampa Bay’s season, as they were ultimately eliminated in Game 4 the following night.

Despite graduating top prospects Wil Myers and Chris Archer to the major leagues this past season, the Rays’ farm system remains loaded with potential major league talent.

So, here’s a look at three specific prospects that can help Tampa Bay get over the hump next season.
