If the Rays are known mostly for their young offensive talent, McGee is a big reason why they'll soon be known for pitching as well. The young lefty was among the Minor League leaders in strikeouts, strikeouts per nine innings and batting average against this year. He did most of it before turning 21.

McGee began the year in the Class A Advanced Florida State League, but ended it by helping Montgomery win the Double-A Southern League title. He uses a three-pitch mix -- fastball, curve and changeup -- to miss a whole lot of bats. Another year in the Minors wouldn't be a bad thing, but he could be ready by late 2008 should the need arise.
