2011 Rays Prospects Reader Choice Players of the Year: Montgomery Biscuits

The poll for the RP Readers Choice MVP's for the Montgomery Biscuits has closed and here are the results.

Montgomery Biscuits Hitter of the Year: Stephen Vogt
Montgomery Biscuits Pitcher of the Year: Matt Moore

Vogt proved that 2010 was no fluke as his offensive production carried over into 2011. Vogt lead the Biscuits in average, slugging and RBI's while ranking in the top five of most of the other offensive stats. He finished the season with a .298 average, 35 doubles, 7 triples, 17 homer runs and 105 RBI's in 128 games split between the Biscuits and the Bulls. Vogt was a mid and post season all-star for the Biscuits and received a promotion to Triple-A Durham late in the season. Vogt was drafted by the Rays in Round 12 of the 2007 Draft.

Moore has been lights out for the Rays organization once again in 2011. Moore led the organization in strikeouts for the third consecutive season and missed taking the Southern League strikeout title due to a July promotion to Triple-A. Moore finished the minor league season with a 12-3 overall record with a 1.92 ERA and 210 strikeouts in 27 starts combined between the Biscuits and the Bulls. He was a post season all-star as well as the being named the Southern League's Most Outstanding Pitcher. At the conclusion of the minor league season, Moore was promoted to the Rays where he will make his first start tonight against the New York Yankees.

  1. Whoever didn't vote for Matt Moore is brain dead!!!

  2. I had a chance to watch a few innings of Moore's debut last night. What amazed me was he looked just as calm and collected on the mound at Yankee Stadium as he did last season with the Stone Crabs.
