Jennings, 6 others in Baseball America's top 100



OF Desmond Jennings was ranked sixth, and six other Rays made the list, as Baseball America released its ranking of the game's top 100 prospects.

After Jennings, RHP Jeremy Hellickson was ranked 18th, RHP Wade Davis 34th, LHP Matt Moore 35th, SS Reid Brignac 54th, SS Tim Beckham 67th and RHP Alex Colome 68th. The seven are the most of any team in the majors.

Atlanta OF Jason Heyward was No. 1.

Beckham, the top pick of the 2008 draft, took a huge tumble in the eyes of the BA staff as he was ranked 28th at this time last year. Playing his first full season, Beckham, 20, hit .275 with 5 homers, 63 RBIs and 116 strikeouts for Class A Bowling Green.

The Rays had five prospects in last year's top 100.
