Overall

Drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2nd round of the 2014 MLB June Amateur Draft from Walters State Community College (Morristown, TN).

Honeywell started his outing strong, displaying a plus fastball and flashing an above average curve and a plus screwball. Honeywell waned after four innings however, as the plus fastball slid back into average territory and the secondaries weren't as crisp. Honeywell's frame can add good weight and his mechanics can allow his command to improve.
