Having one of the top farm systems in baseball doesn’t happen on accident. Consistently drafting well on top of having the ability to develop that talent. It’s one of the hardest things to do, but it’s something the Tampa Bay Rays do as well as any team in baseball. Arguably better than any team in baseball.

The Rays own the top spot again as they have the number one ranked farm system. That’s quite the luxury for a team that’s won at least 90 games in back to back seasons.

Coming into the 2020 MLB Draft, the Rays got the add the that luxury as they had two selections in the first round.

With their first selection the Rays took right-handed pitcher Nick Bitsko, a high-schooler from Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Bitsko is committed to the University of Virginia. According to our friends at  Prospects Live, Bitsko ranked 21st in this class.



With their second pick in the first round, the Rays selected Arizona State INF Alika Williams. Williams is a right-handed hitter with a crazy low 8.9% K-rate during his stint at ASU. Williams ranked 44th by Prospects Live.


The draft will conclude tomorrow where the Rays will be selecting 57, 96, 125 and 155.
