The Montgomery Biscuits announced their Opening Day roster. Nine of the Rays top 30 prospects, this team is stuffed with talent this season. Where the team stranded in the first round of the play offs last year, this year’s team may get a step further in the 2016 campaign.
The highest ranked prospect on the roster is 20-year old shortstop Willy Adames.
Despite being the 3rd best prospect in the Rays’ organization, Adames did not hit very well at A-Advanced last year. In 106 games with the Charlotte StoneCrabs, Adames hit just .258.
