Player Profile: Ryan Brett

I have one card of Ryan Brett, from 2011 Topps Pro Debut.

Playing career: Second baseman Ryan Brett was the Rays’ third round pick in the 2010 draft and has moved his way through the organization. In 2014 at AA Montgomery he hit .303 with 8 HR, 38 RBI and 27 SB.

Where he is now: Brett made his major league debut on April 18 against the Yankees, flying out in a pinch-hit at-bat against Masahiro Tanaka. Three days later he made his first major league start at second base against the Red Sox, only to suffer a separated shoulder that forced him to the DL.

Interesting facts: In 2012 he was one of three Rays minor leaguers suspended for methamphetamine use, which Brett claimed came from an Adderall medication.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is sixth when you type Ryan Bre, between Ryan Brennan & Donnelly, a law firm in Floral Park, NY, and Ryan Brenzier Reviews, referring to a wedding photographer. Another prominent Ryan Brett is a film editor.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Billy Brewer.
