Rays Talking to Geoff Jenkins

New, 49 comments

Hat tip to Gavind for beating me to it. From ESPN via MLBTR  it appears the team is pursuing the 32 year old left handed bat of Geoff Jenkins to replace Delmon Young in right field.

Jenkins is coming off his worst season in quite a while, hitting .255/.319/.471 - that's a better OPS than Delmon last year, mind you - and only had a VORP of 8.9. There had been a lot of talk about Jenkins landing in Detroit, but apparently the teams interested don't include the Tigers but rather the Cubs, Padres, Giants, Rangers, and Royals.

Not sure how much he'll be asking for but he had a 9 million dollar club option that the team option to buyout for half a million.
