Rays' Shane Baz: Opens in extended ST
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baz will open the year in extended spring training, Mike Rosenbaum of MLB.com reports.

With Baz, it's possible that he could be sent to Low-A before the short-season leagues open up, but at the latest we should see him sent somewhere in mid June. The player to be named later in the Chris Archer trade has frontline stuff but needs to work on harnessing his arsenal.

Rays' Shane Baz: PTBNL in Archer deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baz was traded from the Pirates to the Rays as the player to be named later in the Chris Archer deal, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.

As expected, the PTBNL in the Archer deal is better than the typical final piece in a deal like this, as Baz was the No. 12 overall pick in the 2017 draft and netted a slightly over-slot $4.1 million bonus. He has struggled with his command/control as a pro, walking 37 batters in 69 innings across stops in the Gulf Coast League and Appalachian League. However, as a 19-year-old with frontline-caliber stuff, it's not that surprising that he is still honing that aspect of pitching. Baz has 50 strikeouts in 45.1 innings in the Appy League this year, and had fanned 12 over 9.2 scoreless innings in his last two starts for Bristol. He slots in behind Brent Honeywell and Matthew Liberatore as the third-best pitching prospect in a stacked Rays farm system.
