Today’s player pool news:
- The Rays are adding shortstop prospect Greg Jones to their 60-man player pool, per Juan Toribio of MLB.com (Twitter link). The club’s first-rounder out of UNC-Wilmington in 2019, he’s now the #12 prospect in a stellar Tampa farm system, according to Baseball America. The switch-hitting speedster didn’t advance past the short-season New York-Penn League in his first pro action, so he’s surely not on the radar for an MLB call in 2020. Rather, he’ll get an opportunity for additional instruction in front of Rays’ player development staff.
