LHP Blake Snell was the obvious selection at the top of Baseball America's list of the Rays top 30 prospects included in the just-released annual Prospect Handbook.

SS Willy Adames and RHP Brent Honeywell were also logical choices for the next two slots, but there were some surprises down the rest of the list in the rankings and capsules that are must-reading to keep up on the prospects.

The rankings are compiled before the December Rule 5 draft and some trades, so not all transactions are reflected. 3B Kevin Padlo, acquired from Colorado in the Jake McGee trade, was No. 18 on the Rockies list.

Players who have been in the majors are shown in bold.

Here is the list:
1. LHP Blake Snell
2. SS Willy Adames
3. RHP Brent Honeywell
4. OF/1B Jake Bauers
5. OF Garrett Whitley
6. OF Mikie Mahtook
7. RHP Taylor Guerrieri
8. RHP Jacob Faria
9. 1B Casey Gillaspie
10. SS Daniel Robertson
11. 3B/1B Richie Shaffer
12. 2B Ryan Brett
13. C Justin O'Conner
14. RHP German Marquez (since traded to Rockies)
15. C Chris Betts
16. RHP Chih-Wei Hu
17. OF Justin Williams
18. SS Adrian Rondon
19. RHP Brandon Koch
20. RHP Andrew Bellatti
21. INF/OF Taylor Motter
22. OF Tyler Goeddel (since taken by Phillies in Rule 5 draft)
23. RHP Jamie Schultz
24. RHP Hunter Wood
25. SS Jake Hager
26. C Nick Ciuffo
27. C Luke Maile
