|2013-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Can Grayson Garvin turn into a #4 for the Rays? And is Mikie Mahtook anything more than a reserve outfielder?|
(The Wolf from Noggin)
|Think Garvin is headed to the Fall League, right? I'll see him there and have more for you. I don't have any reports on Garvin from this year, but my reports from last year were average fastball with pedestrian secondary stuff. As far as Mahtook: reserve outfielder is what I'd mostly heard coming into this season, and I think this year is kind of reinforcing that. (Jason Cole)|
|2012-11-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Lots can be said about the Rays farm system, anywhere from it being a seemingly never-ending factory for pitchers or the thin amount of power-hitting positional prospects that are contained in the 9 different teams. First, what is your opinion of the Rays farm system? Next, Mikie Mahtook seems to never get much mention as he nears landfall in St. Pete. Will he have any impact at the major league level or is he just a fun, high-intensity guy to watch?|

|Thanks for your question, jlarsen, wondering what part of my hometown you're writing from today. I have a lot of respect for the Rays, as what they have done in their incredibly tough division is remarkable. Their scouting director, RJ Harrison, is really good, and their player development staff, led by Mitch Lukevics, is also top notch. It is REALLY hard to find power, especially when you're drafting deeper die to having a winning club. Their 2011 draft will benefit them for years. They have done a great job developing pitchers, a key ingredient to a winning organization. As for Mahtookl, I have seen him since LSU (Dan Evans)|
