Rays place five on MLB.com’s Top 100 Prospects

ST. PETERSBURG — Tampa Bay continues to enjoy success down on the farm, which is a success that is personified by the organization placing five players on MLB.com’s Top 100 Prospects list.

The annual ranking of baseball’s biggest and brightest young talent is assembled by MLB.com’s Draft and prospect expert Jonathan Mayo, who compiles input from industry sources, including scouts and scouting directors. It is based on analysis of players’ skill sets, upsides, closeness to the Majors and potential immediate impact to their teams. The list, which is one of several prospect rankings on MLB.com’s Prospect Watch, only includes players with rookie status in 2013.
