Baseball America’s Top 10 Prospects: Tampa Bay Rays

While Tampa Bay continued to win in the majors, it also restocked its system. The Rays received five youngsters from the Cubs for Garza, including three quality prospects in shortstop Hak-Ju Lee, righthander Chris Archer and outfielder Brandon Guyer.

The exodus of seven free agents gave Tampa Bay 10 compensation draft choices and an unprecedented 12 picks in the first two rounds. The Rays’ first two picks weren’t supposed to get to them, high school righthander Taylor Guerrieri at No. 24 and Louisiana State outfielder Mikie Mahtook at No. 31, and they continued to blend college players and prep talent afterward.

Mikie Mahtook is on the list? Do we know if he can succeed with a different playing style, or is he relying on getting on base by HBP 150 times a year?

if he acts like that all the way to the big leagues, what makes you think he won't be hit intentionally 150 times a season?
