Players to Watch - 2014

I was asked to pull together my previous posts into one post that could be used to check all the guys I think we should be watching this spring. Here they are. Please note that some of these men have a good shot at making the Rays this year (but they have to get on to the 40-man first). Others may have contracts that let them "opt-out" at the end of spring trainings. And others will likely end up in Montgomery with Rays AA team, the Biscuits.

You will want to go to the original posts for stats and comments links: pitchers, catchers, and infielders/outfielders.
