2011 Rays Digest Minor League Awards Schedule

Every Saturday, we will be honoring the best position player and pitcher from every minor league level of the Tampa Bay Rays organization in 2011. Starting with the VSL Rays and ending with the AAA Durham Bulls, the entire staff will collaborate and choose the players most worthy of recognition. We will culminate by announcing our 2011 Minor League Player of the Year. Look for the schedule inside.

As we begin to get our feet wet covering the Tampa Bay Rays on Scout.com, there is no better way to get things rolling then to take a look back at the best performances in the organization in 2011. Next week we will begin recognizing the Position Player of the Year and Pitcher of the Year from every franchise affiliate. These are players that we will be keeping a close eye on in 2012 and beyond.
