Early this morning, news broke that the Rays and Cubs had reportedly spoken about possibly sending three time top 100 prospect, Javier Baez to the Rays as Chicago is seeking pitching of any kind.
That news has since been confirmed by multiple sources.
Meanwhile, one of the possible pitchers the Rays could trade, Jake Odorizzi, they've actually sent him an extension proposal. Taking his name off the table if he were to accept.

So if the Odorizzi extension talks come to fruition, the Rays may send either Matt Moore or Alex Cobb to Chicago.
From what I've heard, Baez may not be the only player coming from ChiTown.

I'll continue updating throughout the day.
