2022 DRaysBay Community Outlook List no. 23


Previous winners

RHP Sandy Gaston (6’3 200, 20 in 2022)

2021 stats with Florida Coast League Rays and Low-A Charleston: 50 IP, 3.60 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, 16.6 BB%, 33.2 K%

That pace is actually a significant improvement compared to when he last pitched in 2019. It is clear that continuous improvement is needed. He touched triple digits and played regularly in the mid-90s. That kind of speed at his age is extremely rare, but he also needs to make progress with some secondary pitches.


We are at the point of the list where there is unlikely to be another broad consensus. I can not imagine anyone getting a lot of votes per poll the rest of the way.

IF Osleivis Basabe (R / R, 6’1 188, 21 in 2022)

2021 stats with Low-A Charleston and High-A Bowling Green: 327 PA, .284 / .347 / .388, 18/22 SB, 19 XBH, 8.6 BB%, 13.8 K%

Basabe was sourced from Texas in the Nate Lowe trade. He is known for making contact, and his low retrieval rate reflected that. Every report says he has power potential, but it does not yet show in his weakening percentage. He also has good speed and has stolen bases quite efficiently. Defensively, he has the arm and athleticism to hold on to short stops, but has also shown versatility by playing different positions.

RHP Nick Bitsko (6’4 225, 20 in 2022)

Did not show up in 2021

Bitsko was the number 24 choice in the 2020 draft after reclassifying to be drafted a year earlier. However, he has not yet made his pro-debut. Shoulder surgery set him aside in 2021, but he is expected to debut in 2022. Prior to surgery, he had two potential plus fields in his mid-90s speed ball and curveball. His change showed promise.

IF Junior Caminero (R / R, 5’11 157, 18 in 2022)

2021 Dominican Summer League Statistics: 171 PA, .295 / .380 / .534, 9 HR, 17 XBH, 11.7 BB%, 16.4 K%

Rather than lose him for nothing in the Rule 5 draft, the Rays traded Tobias Myers to Cleveland for Caminero. Cleveland signed him in the 2019 international season, and he made his pro debut in 2021. He played all four infield positions, but mostly the corners. He led the Dominican Summer League in home runs and was eighth in the fight.

LHP John Doxakis (6’4 215, 23 in 2022)

2021 stats with Low-A Charleston and High-A Bowling Green: 102 23 IP, 3.94 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, 4.6 BB%, 27.7 K%

Doxakis’ ERA was a bit high after his promotion to High A, but his numbers below the surface were good. He kept opponents at an on-base percentage below .300, and his OPS against was significantly better than the league average. His speed ball and break ball are just average pitches, but he has very good control. Only 15 minor leagues with 100 plus innings had a lower walking rate.

C Blake Hunt (R / R, 6’3 215, 23 in 2022)

2021 Statistics with High-A Bowling Green and Double-A Montgomery: 320 PA, .205 / .288 / .375, 9 HR, 28 XBH, 10.0 BB%, 32.5 K%

Hunt may have surprisingly not been added to the 40-man roster this offseason, making him eligible for the Rule 5 draft, which could eventually happen. He was part of the Blake Snell trade. His defense is very good – which the Rays appreciate – and he has intangible qualities that teams look for in catchers. He has power potential, but he struggled in 2021.

2B Cooper Kinney (L / R, 6’3 200, 19 in 2022)

2021 Florida Coast League Rays Statistics: 47 PA, .286 / .468 / .371, 2/2 SB, 21.3 BB%, 19.1 K%

The Rays defeated Kinney no. 34 set up overall for his bat, and he started his career nicely in a limited number of plate appearances. He makes good contact, and he has shown a good plate approach. At the moment he does not have much power, but he has a chance to develop average or above average strength. With limited athletics, his defensive home is a question.

1B Kyle Manzardo (L / R, 6’1 205, 21 in 2022)

2021 Florida Coast League Rays Statistics: 50 PA, .349 / .440 / .605, 2 HR, 7 XBH, 8.0 BB%, 12.0 K%

In his debut, Manzardo looked a lot like a polished college hitman crushing young pitchers. He showed a strong plate approach at Washington State before the Rays drafted him in the second round, and that carried over to the beginning of his professional career. His hit tool is his best, but his power has improved through his college career and can be above average. He is not much of an athlete and is limited to the first base.

LHP Brendan McKay (6’2 220, 26 in 2022)

2021 Statistics with Double-A Montgomery: 7 IP, 12.86 ERA, 2.00 WHIP, 11.1 BB%, 22.2 K%

It was another losing season for the No. 4 pick in the 2017 draft. McKay started late in 2020 due to COVID and then underwent shoulder surgery. In 2021, he had surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, which is difficult for pitchers to recover from. At best, he threw a lot of strikes with decent stuff, including an above-average speed ball. His cutter, conversion and break ball can also all be above average.

C Rene Pinto (R / R, 5’10 195, 25 in 2022)

2021 Statistics with Double-A Montgomery and Triple-A Durham: 382 PA, .274 / .325 / .500, 20 HR, 40 XBH, 5.8 BB%, 29.8 K%

Any team could have had Pinto in minor league release after 2020, but he returned to the Rays. After an outbreak of 2021 season, he was added to the 40-man roster to stop him from hitting free agency again. He was previously a bat-first-catcher and suddenly gained more power, nearly doubling his career home total. He has an aggressive plate approach, but has made it work. His defense has improved.

IF Ryan Spikes (R / R, 5’9 185, 19 in 2022)

2021 Florida Coast League Rays Statistics: 47 PA, .250 / .362 / .400, 1 HR, 4 XBH, 4/5 SB, 12.8 BB%, 27.7 K%

The Rays liked Spikes enough to draft him in the third round and gave him almost twice as much as the recommended signing bonus for his number 100 overall pick. He makes good contact and is a decent athlete. Despite not being very large, it places good exit speeds and can have decent power. With a good arm, he shows versatility in the infield, dividing time between second and third bases in his short pro experience.
