Hello Rays fans. My name is Tyler Hissey and I am the new publisher for Rays Digest. I am a student at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida, located just five miles away from Tropicana Field.

During my work for the site, I will focus the majority of my efforts on the top prospects throughout the Devil Rays' organization. Starting tomorrow, I will begin a series where I rank the top five prospects in the Rays' farm system by position. I will rank each position in order starting with catchers. At the end of the series, I will post a complete list of the organization's top 25 overall prospects. The first few lists will be available for all site visitors, but the majority will only be able to be viewed by subscribers to the Rays Insider.

Also, every day I will post a team report provided from with all of the latest game results, player news, and injury updates. The first one of these reports, for today April 18th, is currently posted on the Rays Insider homepage.

Please e-mail me any questions that you have about the Tampa Bay Devil Rays or prospects within the organization. Every week, I hope to answer all of the questions readers have. Leave your name and hometown in the message and I will post all questions and answers in a weekly Rays Insider Mailbag article. Send all questions to I look forwarding to answering all of your questions.

Also, feel free to create an account and post on the Devil Rays message boards. I will share my thoughts on the boards as well every couple days. I recently conducted an interview with Jeremy Hellickson, ranked the 9th best prospect in the Tampa Bay organization according to, and I will post a story with that interview by the end of the week.

With the help of all of you, I think we can make this one of the best Tampa Bay Devil Rays sites on the internet. I am anxious to get started.
