Looking Back At The Rays 2009 Draft

In 2009 the Rays selected 50 players over 50 rounds, signed 32 of those picks, and have 15 players left in the system three years later.

Of the 15 remaining players 3 have reached AA Montgomery, 6 are with high-A Charlotte, 3 are in low-A Bowling Green, 1 is with short-season A Hudson Valley, and 2 are with advanced-rookie Princeton.

Here are how the players still in the organization have done statistically so far in their careers:

The 'LeVon Washington draft' has become the 'Todd Glaesmann draft', and other than Glaesmann, Malm and some relievers, there isn't much to show for it. And that's the optimistic outlook. Glaesmann seems to have turned it up a couple of notches since playing winter ball in Australia, and he's always been a strong defender. But this is his first good year, and the strikeout and walk rates are still worrisome. Malm has hit well so far, but as a 1B his bat will have to carry him. He did play 17 games earlier this year in the outfield, mostly in left, with a .933 fielding percentage. If he can play a reasonable left field his chances of making it improve quite a bit. Glaesmann is 2nd in the Rays organization this season with 181 total bases and Malm is 5th with 162. They are tied with an .815 OPS, good for 9th in the org among qualifiers. Relievers are relievers, a couple will probably reach the majors, but who knows which ones at this point.

The funny part is the draft wouldn't have been any better if Washington, Diekroeger and Dennis had signed. Washington has been a major disappointment in the Indians org, Diekroeger wasn't great at Stanford and dropped to the 4th round in the 2012 draft, and Dennis was awful at Michigan. You can still make a case for Diekroeger, but I want to see him do something above the Appy league.

Any thoughts on this draft, or things I'm missing?

  1. Pretty bad draft. Not a fan of Glaesmann.. not nearly enough power to supplement the lack of plate discipline and average. Hopefully he continues to improve, but I like Malm's chances of making it to the big leagues much more.

  2. I think Rogers has a great shot at making the bigs
