I thought this was an interesting profile on Devil Rays prospect Elijah Dukes. There’s no doubt Dukes has had his share of issues and while it looks like the Devil Rays outfield is set, Dukes would make a nice option as a fourth outfielder. He had a very good season in Durham where he hit .293 but more importantly, he walked 44 times versus only 47 strikeouts so Dukes would make a very nice table setter. He also has some pop and he hit 10 homeruns and 15 doubles in 283 at bats.
This success also carried over into a solid Arizona Fall League. There he hit .313/.425/..488. So Dukes is ready and I think it’s time to give him his chance.
