Over the past ten years, the Rays have done an excellent job at getting value out of their farm system. Their entire business model is based on a constant influx of new talent as they generally move players after four years of service time and restock. Occasionally, a potential cornerstone player emerges like Wander Franco, and they spend money, but it’s a churning process for the most part.
The system is again loaded. Taj Bradley is the top player in the system. He’s an athletic pitcher who throws strikes and should join Glasnow, McClannahan, and Springs in the starting rotation in Tampa. If you like players like Wander Franco, you’re going to like Curtis Mead. He’s a hit-first player with position flexibility and emerging power. It then goes on from there for another 15 players. I overachieved on this system, writing up 17 players, including a few young Latin players, for deeper Dynasty League managers.
