The Tampa Bay Rays farm system does not have the talent it once did.
The team used to have an overabundance of talent, particularly starting pitching.
As the beginning of the 2014 season approaches, the reality is that there is no David Price, Matt Moore or Jeremy Hellickson waiting in the minor leagues for the promotion the majors.
The lineup has some promise in the infield. The promotion of Wil Myers to the majors took away the organizations top prospect for years to come.
With all of that said, the Rays have some quality players within their minor league organization with the ultimate goal of developing those players’ skills so they can contribute at the major league level.
Typically, the Rays spend the offseason making moves to add more organizational depth, while teams in the larger New York and Boston markets have the additional means to sign free agents to market-value deals.
Here are the Rays' top prospects in each position.
