The Rays are in trade talks -- albeit minor -- with the Pirates. According to Dejan Kovacevic, it could be for Virgil Vasquez. I know Vasquez pitched in both relief and in the starting rotation last season with the Buccos. I am uncertain of the splits he had while starting and relieving last year with the Pirates. Who would the Rays give up to acquire Vasquez? Cash? PTBNL? Helliott Johnson? No se. We shall see what comes of this.
