Blake Snell

I am now working on the St. Louis Cardinals Top 20 prospects list for 2017. The next team in line is the Tampa Bay Rays, to be followed by the San Francisco Giants, Texas Rangers, Philadelphia Phillies, Boston Red Sox, Pittsburgh Pirates, and Chicago White Sox.

Use this thread to discuss the Tampa Bay Rays organization. Possible points for discussion include, but are certainly not limited to,

***The Rays finished 68-94, fifth place in the American League Eastern Division. Any chance to get back to .500 or better this year?

***Did you know that Nick Franklin is still only 25 years old? Is there any chance for a surge in his late 20s?

***Tell us about your hopes and fears for Blake Snell. Does his control improve?

***Lay out your timetable for shortstop Willy Adames, Tampa's best prospect. Does he get a full year in Triple-A?

***Same question for Brent Honeywell, their top pitching prospect.

***How much power will Jake Bauers eventually produce?

***As always, feel free to discuss anything Rays-oriented and share your prospect sleepers.
