Archer, Lee now among Rays top 10 prospects



Baseball America's Jim Callis is among the analysts who liked the return the Rays from the Cubs in the Matt Garza trade (more so than what the Royals got from Milwaukee for Zack Grienke), and said it was enough to push the Rays from third to second in their organizational rankings.

Callis also re-ranked the Rays top prospects list following the trade, adding RHP Chris Archer, SS Hak-Ju Lee and OF Brandon Guyer to the top 12, so the list now looks like this:

 1. Jeremy Hellickson, rhp
 2. Matt Moore, lhp
 3. Desmond Jennings, of
 4. Chris Archer, rhp
 5. Jake McGee, lhp
 6. Josh Sale, of
 7. Alex Torres, lhp
 8. Hak-Ju Lee, ss
 9. Alex Colome, rhp
10. Justin O'Conner, c
11. Drew Vettleson, of
12. Brandon Guyer, of
13. Jake Thompson, rhp

With the Cubs, Archer was No. 1, Lee No. 4 and Guyer No. 10.
