A First Round pick in 2004, Jeff Niemann would reach the main Tampa roster in 2008, and from 2009 to 2011, he was a regular on the Rays’ rotation.  In each of those seasons, Niemann had at least 11 Wins, with the first two seeing him eclipse 170 Innings Pitched.

Niemann had shoulder problems that caused him to miss the entire 2013 Season, and the Rays or any other club did not resign him.  Tampa Bay would be the only team that Niemann would play for on the Major League level.  He would leave the Majors with a record of 40-26 and 409 Strikeouts.
