Rays Young Pitching: It Keeps Going, and Going…

It looks like the Rays are at in again in terms of setting records with young pitching:

James Shields is, of course, the “old man” of the staff at 30 years old, drafted way back in Y2K, but still a pitcher drafted and developed by Tampa. Like Jonah Keri talks about in his book The Extra 2%, the Rays take the long view regarding their franchise and the starting rotation is a product of that. 

With Wade Davis working out of the bullpen and Alex Cobb in the minors, the Rays have young pitching depth that any team would envy.
