727Area has new update 3 hours ago 2020 DRaysBay Community Prospect No. 14
Photo by Frank Jansky/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images The organization’s top breakout pitcher from 2019 is the latest player selected for the list. Previous winner RHP Joe Ryan (6’1 185, 24 in 2020) 2019 statistics with Class-A Bowling Green, Class A-Advanced Charlotte, and Double-A Montgomery: 123 2?3 IP, 1.96 ERA, 0.84 WHIP, 5.6 BB%, 38.0 K% Ryan came out of nowhere in 2019 and was one of the best pitchers in minor league baseball. He leans heavily on a fastball that batters have a hard time picking up, and he finished second in the minors in strikeouts. His velocity may only be above average, but he commands his fastball well and throws a lot of strikes. His changeup can be above average, and he has to improve his breaking ball. Joe Ryan had been receiving votes for quite a while, and now he’s finally on the list. The last three votes have been pretty decisive, but that trend could change again. I’ll take up to two testers this poll. There were a lot of names being thrown out over the weekend, so if a player you wanted to see didn’t make it this time, try again. SS Lucius Fox (S/R, 6’1 180, 22 in 2020) 2019 statistics with Double-A Montgomery and Triple-A Durham: 480 PA, .221/.331/.327, 39/50 SB, 28 XBH, 12.3 BB%, 21.7 K% In an organization filled with athletes, Fox is one of the best. He has at least 29 steals in all three seasons with the organization, and he’s an efficient basestealer. His defense in the infield is among the best in the organization, and for the first time in his pro career, he played some second base and third base. At the plate, he hit for slightly more power than usual, but he generally struggled, particularly in a cup of coffee with Durham. OF Moises Gomez (R/R, 5’11 200, 21 in 2020) 2019 statistics with Class A-Advanced: 489 PA, .220/.297/.402, 16 HR, 44 XBH, 9.8 BB%, 33.5 K% Baseball America views Gomez’s power as the best in the organization, and his 16 home runs set Charlotte’s single-season record. However, his aggressive approach got the best of him in 2019, and he wasn’t able to build on his breakout 2018 season. His athleticism and defense are just average, so he’ll need to improve his pitch recognition to make more consistent contact and get the most out of his raw power. RHP JJ Goss (6’3 185, 19 in 2020) 2019 statistics with Gulf Coast League Rays: 17 IP, 5.82 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, 2.8 BB%, 22.5 K% Goss improved throughout the spring, and that led to the Rays selecting him with the No. 36 pick in June. His stuff got better. His velocity improved, and his breaking ball and changeup were sharper. In addition, he was considered one of the best strike throwers in his draft class (Baseball America $). With his athleticism, he should continue to throw strikes, and his fastball may improve further as he gets stronger. 3B Kevin Padlo (R/R, 6’2 205, 23 in 2020) 2019 statistics with Double-A Montgomery and Triple-A Durham: 432 PA, .265/.389/.538, 21 HR, 53 XBH, 12/16 SB, 15.7 BB%, 26.9 K% Padlo broke a hamate bone in 2017, and it took him until the 2019 season to get back on track. He’s always had power potential, and now that he’s healthy, he’s showing it in games. His average wasn’t bad, and he posted a high walk rate. At third base, he’s a good defender and also spent a handful of games at both first base and second base, which he was able to do with his athleticism. OF Nick Schnell (L/R, 6’3 180, 20 in 2020) 2019 statistics with rookie-level Princeton and Class-A Bowling Green: 226 PA, .272/.338/.455, 5 HR, 23 XBH, 5/8 SB, 8.8 BB%, 33.2 K% Injuries ended Schnell’s pro debut early and delayed his start to 2019, but when he’s been on the field, he’s played pretty well — despite a very high strikeout rate. Otherwise, he’s shown why the Rays selected him with the No. 32 pick in 2018. He’s hit well, showed power potential, and he has the chance to stick in center field with solid athleticism. Staying on the field will be key moving forward. IF Taylor Walls (S/R, 5’10 180, 23 in 2020) 2019 statistics with Class A-Advanced Charlotte and Double-A Montgomery: 423 PA, .270/.343/.452, 10 HR, 40 XBH, 28/43 SB, 10.6 BB%, 18.7 K% An injury kept Walls from really starting his season until May, but it didn’t affect him much, as he was able to finish the season in Double A. Known as one of the better defenders in the organization, he gained versatility last season, often sharing the field with other prospects who needed innings at shortstop. At the plate, he makes consistent contact, knows the strike zone, and showed a little more power in 2019. Loading poll...
727Area has new update 4 hours ago Rays prospects and winter leagues: Hulsizer smashes competition
Niko Hulsizer slides into second base in a photo from 2018 | Photo by John Byrum/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images After a long slump, Niko Hulsizer dominated over the weekend in Australia. I decided to move every player in the Caribbean leagues to the finished section. I think all the leagues are in the postseason now, and the stats are too hard to track at that point. There was some Twitter buzz Saturday when Rob Friedman tweeted a brief clip of Brent Honeywell throwing at Tropicana Field. I haven’t seen any updates on him this offseason regarding where he is in his recovery process, but this is still a good sign: Ninja Scoop:I heard a rumor that Brent Honeywell is back throwing.
