    Notes and Updates

    V.1.0
    - Picked up James Shields' option for $7,000,000
    - Picked up Kyle Farnsworth's option for $3,300,000

    V.1.1
    - Dan Johnson is a Free Agent in real life. No longer on Rays roster.
    - Andy Sonnanstine was non-tendered in real life. He's a free agent.

    Edits will come when Slugger gets online.

    V.1.2
    - In real life, John Jaso was traded to the Mariners a while ago in exchange for Josh Lueke. I'm waiting on confirmation from the commissioners on if those moves effect us in the mock. If so, that removes him from our roster.

    V.1.3
    - Cleared up the confusion. Missed one of the rules. Since the rosters roll back to the 28th of October, Jaso, Sonnanstine and Johnson are actually all still Rays.

    V.1.4
    - Tendered contract to David Price - $7,800,000
    - Tendered contract to BJ Upton - $7,600,000
    - Tendered contract to Jeff Niemann - $3,100,000
    - Tendered contract to JP Howell - $1,400,000
    - Extended Joel Peralta - 2012: $1,500,000 | 2013: 1,500,000
    - Non-tendered Andy Sonnanstine. He is now a free agent and welcome to talk to any other team.

    V.1.5
    - Settled on a trade with Los Angeles Angels.
    - Update: Trade was vetoed by commissioner's office.

    V.1.6
    - To be clear, Shields is making 7M not 7.5M. MVP results came out after the 28th of October, meaning Shields never finished 5th in voting and never got the 500K performance bonus.

    V.1.7
    - Submitted request to Bank to have salary increased by $30,000,000 (from 43M to 73M)
    - Appeal accepted. Total salary cap raised by $15,000,000 (from 43M to 58M)

    V.1.8
    - Settled on a trade with Los Angeles Angels.
    - Awaiting commissioner approval.
    - Trade passed. Kyle Farnsworth to Los Angeles Angels; Mark Trumbo to Tampa Bay Rays.

    V.1.9
    - Forgot to 'officially' non-tender Andy Sonnanstine and the deadline was passed. He is back on our team, though unwelcome as ever nonetheless. You will be dealt, Andy. You can bet your pretty little tutu, you will be dealt.

    V.2.0
    - Settled on a trade with Toronto Blue Jays.
    - Awaiting commissioner approval.
    - Trade passed. Evan Longoria, David Price, BJ Upton, Hak-Ju Lee to Toronto Blue Jays; Jose Bautista, Brett Lawrie, Yunel Escobar to Tampa Bay Rays.

    Tampa Bay Rays Updated Farm System

    Top Prospects
    1 - {Grade A} Matt Moore, LHP:
    His profile is a collection of superlatives: excellent stuff, dramatically improved command over the last two years, impeccable statistics. He'll be a true ace and Cy Young contender barring an injury or catastrophic command slippage.

    2 - {Grade A-} Jarrod Parker, RHP:
    I wish his strikeout rate was higher and I think he needs some Triple-A time. I don't think he uses his breaking stuff as much as he did pre-injury, but overall he still looks like a future rotation anchor to me. The risk may be higher than some anticipate, but the ceiling is quite high.

    3 - {Grade A-} Tyler Skaggs, LHP:
    I don't know what to say here other than he's really good. Scouting reports are quite strong, numbers excellent, future number two starter although if everything works out. If everything works out (more on that below).

    4 - {Grade B+} Alexander Torres, LHP:
    Outstanding dominance ratios, still has some command issues but has nothing left to prove in the minors.

    5 - {Grade B} Alex Colome, RHP:
    Also has command issues but plus stuff, and I trust the Rays organization to develop him properly. Could be mid-rotation starter or a closer.

    6 - {Grade B} Wily Peralta, RHP:
    Looks like he could be a solid number three starter if his command remains steady. We should see him sometime in 2012.

    7 - {Grade B-} Parker Markel, RHP:
    High-velocity power sinker, hard slider and changeup stand out. Could rank much higher next year once he performs in full-season ball. Low strikeout rate mitigated by ground ball tendency. Could be mid-rotation starter or a closer.

    8 - {Grade B-} Enny Romero, LHP:
    High-ceiling arm went backwards with his command in full-season ball. Seems a good bet to improve/rebound, and grade could be at least a notch higher if that happens.

    9 - {Grade C+} Oscar Hernandez, C:
    Put up monstrous numbers in the Venezuelan Summer League and did a good job throwing out runners. He wasn't a big bonus guy and scouting reports remain annoyingly vague. It will be fascinating to see how all this translates to North America. Ranking here is a guesstimate.

    10 - {Grade C+} Felipe Rivero, LHP:
    Live-armed lefty didn't dominate the Appy League statistically, but has plenty of arm strength and a mid-rotation ceiling.

    11 - {Grade C+} Derek Dietrich, SS:
    Good power, but poor strike zone judgment in Low-A and pending move to third base keep him from a higher grade at this point. With some adjustments could get into strong B range.

    12 - Johnny Eirman

    13 - Russ Canzler

    14 - Matt Bush

    15 - Justin O'Connor

    Lucas Bailey, C; Marquis Fleming, RHP; Grayson Garvin, LHP; Todd Glaesman, OF; Kyeong Kang, OF; Braulio Lara, LHP; Kyle Lobstein, LHP; Jeff Malm, SS; Ty Morrison, OF; C.J. Riefenhauser, LHP; Wilking Rodriguez, RHP; Cody Rogers, OF; Cameron Seitzer, 1B; Blake Snell, LHP; Matt Spann, LHP; Jacob Thompson, RHP; Stephen Vogt, C-1B.
