The Tampa Bay Rays have released the names of the players that make up their 60-man player pool for the 2020 season.

Tampa Bay Rays News: The team has released its list of 60 players that will make up the player pool for the 2020 season.

Players on the 60-man roster will be eligible to be called up for injuries or should a round of illness hit the team.

The team will have to clear a spot on the 40-man roster to callup a player that is on the 60-man player pool but not on the 40-man.

Prospects will only earn service time if they are added to the active roster during the season.
