Thomas Coyle is a second baseman in the Tampa Bay
Devil Rays farm system. A 16th-round draft pick in 2012, the 23-year-old Pennsylvania native is hitting .249 with five home run, 27 RBI and 22 stolen bases through 92 games for the Charlotte Stone Crabs in the Single-A Florida State League.
Coyle could be an interesting sleeper prospect if his offensive numbers improve once he leaves the pitcher-friendly ballparks of the Florida State League behind, or he could find himself trying out for independent league teams in another year or two if they don’t.
Among younger baseball players, Coyle’s autograph stands out because it is fairly readable.
I received this card as part of the prize in @seansa91‘s Twitter contest earlier this summer.
