Probably the best power hitter in the Tampa Bay system, Richie Shaffer has been grinding his way through the minor league machinery since 2012, most recently slashing .270 .355 .582 for the AAA Durham Bulls, with 19 homers in 69 games against, in large part, MLB-level pitching. While some project the big man as a future first baseman based on his offensive profile, he's actually blessed with a plus arm better deployed at third base or right field, and he has just enough speed and grace to handle either. While he stumbled in a quick cup of coffee last year, he should be better the next time around. Don't give up.
