Prospect Spotlight

Rondon was one of the top prospects in 2014’s J2 class, signing for just under $3 million with the Rays as a 16-year-old. He showed flashes of brilliance early in his pro career but has yet to put everything together, really struggling the last two seasons in the Midwest League. Rondon got lost in a deep Rays system and was dealt to the Angels for just international bonus money in return. The trajectory is different than what scouts would have hoped at the time he signed, but it’s worth noting Rondon is still just 20 and has time to turn a corner. He’s in somewhat of a make-or-break situation, however, at risk of fully falling off the prospect radar unless he can get over the hump in full-season ball.
