Rays farm system ranked No. 2 by Baseball America



The Rays farm system was ranked No. 2 in the game by Baseball America; the Rangers were No. 1.

Here is what editor John Manuel wrote:

2. Rays: Talk about top-heavy. Every system would love to have two big league-ready right-handers like Wade Davis and Jeremy Hellickson, who both have stuff, command and success at the upper levels. And neither of them is even the Rays' top prospect -- that honor goes to five-tool center fielder Desmond Jennings, whose only issue is durability. In between Triple-A and low Class A, the Rays are a bit thin, but they have a bevy of power arms at the lower levels, led by left-hander Matt Moore.

The Rays were fourth in BA's spring organizational rankings, behind the Rangers, Marlins and A's.
