It should be fun to see how the team has come together and who will step up this season. There certainly is a lot of opportunity for some young players as well as a few grizzled (and not so grizzled) veterans.
In addition to local product Casey Kotchman, former Ray catcher and 2000 International League MVP Toby Hall is working out for the Rays, hoping to extend his career with the team he began it with. Hall has spent the past two years dealing with shoulder injuries and last played for the Texas Rangers.
