Have Rays given up on Guyer or is Upton on the trading block?

With the recent acquisition of Scott and Pena, Brandon Guyer has no chance of playing time unless something changes. Pena at first means Joyce in the OF and Scott means most DH at-bats will be spoken for. You might think there were some at-bats available when a left is on the mound -- as Joyce can't hit lefties and Pena has struggled - but Guyer has shown a reverse platoon split every year but one.

Guyer turns 26 this year so his window as a prospect isn't big. Keeping him in Tampa if he plays once or twice a week won't help much with his development.

Do the Rays see Guyer as part if their future and as more than a backup? Would the Rays be comfortable trading Upton and starting Guyer? What do you think?
