Similar to all prospects in any system, only time will tell as to whether Turner, Sulser, Lacy, and Plassmeyer will produce at the Major League level for the Tampa Bay Rays. The future is exciting for the Rays and despite the loss of some exiting prospects, Neander and co. made sure to get back some intriguing pieces.

I will say it again, I really like Gionti Turner’s make up and speed. I also really like Lacy and Plassmeyer and their abilities to work the strike zone and create swings and misses despite the inability to throw 95+.

Sulser may be able to crack the 25 man roster at some point this year if not by Opening Day. With his strikeout numbers, it is likely we could see his name being shuffled between Tampa and Durham.

Next. Rays trade for Pagan. dark

All four prospects could be really good finds by the Tampa Bay Rays, but like I said, only time will tell.
