Rays Roster

All players on this roster have accumulated more WAR for the Rays than any other major league team. Players are listed alphabetically, followed by their Strat-o-Matic card being used and their position eligibility.

Players without the *** designation are listed in Baseball Reference’s top 1000 in career WAR.

Players with the *** designation are not listed in the top 1000, but are “invitees” to round out the team to fulfill these minimum requirements: 30 players — 18 position players (with at least 2 players rated at each position) and 12 pitchers (at least 7 must have a reliever rating).
