Rays Reassign No. 2 Prospect Caminero to Minors Despite Shortstop Void
  • The Tampa Bay Rays have sent their top prospect, Junior Caminero, back to the minor-league camp.

  • Junior Caminero will not be on the active roster for Opening Day despite being the No. 2 prospect in baseball.

  • At only 20 years old, Caminero requires additional development time in the minors, as determined by the Rays.

  • Last season, Caminero showcased his potential with 31 home runs across High-A and Double-A levels.

  • The Rays' decision arrives despite an existing gap at shortstop, with Wander Franco on administrative leave.

  • The organization maintains the expectation that Caminero will join the active roster in the future.
