Tampa Bay Rays preliminary prospect list

Here is the preliminary working research list for Tampa Bay Rays prospects. I had 60 names here initially, which has been brutally cut down to 51. I need to get this down to 40 at most, so there are some tough decisions ahead here.

As usual, the hard part is deciding between Grade C type prospects and finding the balance between role player types who could be in the majors soon (Luke Maile, C.J. Riefenhauser, etc.) and long-distance prospects who have more upside but a higher risk of not turning into anything useful at all.

In marginal cases I generally lean towards guys closer to the majors because I hate it when someone gets promoted who isn't in the book but your mileage may vary.
