Two players are returning to A-ball from the 2008 Columbus Catfish: Mike McCormick and Henry Wrigley. Three are skipping Hudson Valley and moving directly from Princeton in 2008 to Bowling Green: Joseph Cruz, Michael Jarman, and Matt Moore. The rest are all moving up from Hudson Valley.
I still say this team will feature one of the most talented groups of young players in minor league baseball, not just in the Rays organization. Great to see Joseph Cruz making the jump to full-season ball (Moore wasn't as much of a surprise). I was hoping Elias Otero would be here, but with Jason Tweedy and Jeremy Beckham, I guess there just wasn't room. Nick Barnese will join the rotation following rehab (shoulder) at Port Charlotte.
