2010 RP Mid Season All-Star Team (Short Season Edition)

We have passed the mid-point of the season of the short season leagues. So its time for the short-season edition of the 2010 Rays Prospects Mid-Season All-Star Team. Just like the full-season voting that took place in June, it is your opportunity to vote for the players you think are worthy of all-star status.

Voting will take place until noon on August 8, 2010. The list contains players from all three of the short-season affiliates and they are listed in alphabetical order by the position in which they played the most during the 2010 season. The vote leaders in each category will be named to the all-star team as well as one wild card pitcher and hitter. The wild card player will be the highest voted player that did not win a position spot outright.

  1. With the Rays sending so many pitchers to the Hudson Valley Renegades, it's making it tough to even know how Hudson Valley pitchers are doing. We have 17 pitchers....10 (5+5) of them are piggybacking. Relief pitchers are barely pitching-lucky if it's once a week, This is crazy. The season is more than half over and we still don't have our 5 starters.I can't figure out what's going on.(Has to be tough on the coaches trying to get everybody into the games.) Do any other teams have this many pitchers?

  2. It's that way at all levels. These pitchers are stagnating. Tough to know anything about their development when all they are doing is throwing side bullpen sessions.
    Would've thought a deal for a big bat for the big club might have opened things by moving some pitching. Hope these guys don't rot on the vine. Pitch them in games or move them for immediate help for the big club!!! I understand going slow with young pitchers, but this year is frustrating. No bats anywhere and pitchers all over the place who aren't getting innings. Something's got to give.

  3. One thing I think the front office actually does poorly is that they hold onto too many players. You see it at the major-league level where it seems like they're going out of their way to keep Lance Cormier around. Even with three short-season teams, guys are struggling to get consistent playing time, and besides being ridiculous, it's likely impacting development.
