Davis and McGee. McGee and Davis. It doesn't matter in which order you put them (though on this list, Davis is ranked higher); both will reach Tampa in short order and help support its quickly improving young offense. Davis got the bump up to Double-A in 2007 earlier than McGee and thus might be a touch closer to joining Scott Kazmir in the Rays' rotation.

The big right-hander has outstanding stuff combined with good command, consistency and outstanding poise. He can run his fastball up into the upper-90s and his hard curve is a plus pitch. His changeup and cutter have come a long way in the past year. Looking at his arsenal, size and delivery, one can easily see him as a future front-of-the-rotation pitcher.
