If the minor leagues were like college, then Honeywell took 50 credits his senior year when he only needed 30 to graduate with honors. The fact that the Rays seemed intent on not promoting their top pitching prospect became a bit of a running joke in prospect circles toward the end of the year, although it shouldn't have come as a surprise given Tampa Bay's well-established slow-and-low approach with pitching prospects. Honeywell certainly thought he deserved a promotion, and his frustration boiled over to the point that he ended up getting a team-issued four-game suspension in late August. A .365 BABIP inflated his ERA, but his 2.84 FIP illustrates how dominant he was as a 22-year-old in the International League. His deep repertoire and plus command separates him from most pitching prospects, but he lacks the plus-plus offering that most frontline starters possess. He suffered a torn UCL early in camp this year and will likely need Tommy John surgery, so he should be avoided in all redraft leagues. Honeywell remains a top 100 prospect for dynasty leagues.

  2. Brent Honeywell 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Honeywell continues to enjoy a virtually seamless progression through the Rays organization, posting a combined 2.34 ERA and 1.03 WHIP over 20 starts between High-A Charlotte and Double-A Montgomery. His strikeouts were slightly down upon his ascension to the latter, but he otherwise was essentially producing at the same clip as he had against a lower level of competition. He has five pitches at his disposal and strong command of all of them, led by his plus screwball. His second best offering is a low-90s fastball, which also grades out as plus due to his command of the pitch and its late movement. All told, the ingredients of a high-end No. 3 starter are all present. The Rays are known for taking it slow with pitching prospects, but unique talents like Blake Snell and Honeywell can move at a more traditional pace, so we could see the Rays No. 2 prospect make his big league debut sometime this summer.
  3. Brent Honeywell 2016 Preseason Outlook
    It is pretty easy to fall in love with Honeywell as a prospect, but it is important to have realistic expectations. He has three above-average pitches to go with above-average command, but he doesn’t have the one or two great pitches typically necessary for a pitcher to profile at the front of a rotation. Of course, in the lower levels of the minors, just having two above-average pitches and above-average command is enough to dominate most hitters, so it is no surprise that Honeywell posted a 3.18 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, and 129 strikeouts in 130.1 innings between Low-A and High-A as a 20-year-old. He covered two levels in 2015, but it would not be surprising to see him spend all of 2016 at Double-A unless he pulls a Blake Snell and shatters expectations, which seems unlikely. In the end, Honeywell is probably a No. 3 or No. 4 starter who could debut in the big leagues in late 2017.
  4. Brent Honeywell 2015 Preseason Outlook
    Honeywell came out of the 2014 draft and did well in his rookie debut. He’s an unusual pitcher in that he throws a screwball, which is a pitch that is just about extinct in the major leagues. He throws in the low-to-mid-90s, and has the aforementioned screwball to keep batters guessing as he did when striking out 40 batters in 33.2 innings in 2014. He was ranked the fifth best prospect in the Appalachian League by Baseball America, and should be on watch lists in deep dynasty leagues.
