The rays should try to trade him with starter value. If they cant then dont trade him at all and start him next year because his salary increases steadily every year. One potential trade is to the Braves for Juan Francisco. He plays 3rd base but would be better off at DH for the Rays. He has a lot of power in his bat but also a lot of strikouts. He will bat in the .240s(better than Pena). The Rays need a serious left handed power bat in the lineup to upgrade their offence. http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/f/francju02.shtml. He hit 9HRs last year in 192 ABs and with 650 AB's he would hit 30 HRs with just over 100 RBI's. The Braves didnt give up much to get him so this deal looks possible.
