A few weeks and a number of cuts into Rays camp at Port Charlotte, a number of players have stood out…for better or worse.

While the Tampa Bay Rays’ unsightly record of 7-11 thus far this spring indicates a team performing below expectations, this spring has been host to a number of wonderful surprises. From vets looking to bounce back to form to young talents attempting to challenge for a roster spot at some point in the coming year, a number of Rays have let their presence be known at the plate as well as on the bump.

That being said, some have failed to live up to expectations if not actively taken steps back in their play. These unlucky few will need to perform well in the final few games of spring before the season gets going and they, potentially, are left behind.
