Triple-A Durham Bulls

We start with a layup as the Bulls are pretty straightforward. Richie Shaffer is set to play third base, Hak-Ju Lee will man shortstop, Ryan Brett will play second base, and Cameron Seitzer and Vince Belnome will share first base and DH. It isn’t a complete certainty that Shaffer will be promoted to Triple-A, but the prospects below him ensure that will be the case.

It is also worth mentioning Tim Beckham, who is no sure thing to make the Rays’ roster out of spring training. Should he return to Durham, Beckham will be playing a super-utility role and it should not difficult to find him playing time.
