Here’s everything we’ve put together ahead of today’s 4:00 EST Trade Deadline:
Trade Deadline Analysis
Rays Trade Rumors
Rays Trade Targets
Where do we go from here?
Not discussed in detail (yet) are what prospects the Rays could be asking the Dodgers for in a trade of starting pitching (LA has two openings in rotation).
Also not discussed to-date is the potential of pairing up with Houston, another team that could use a starter, or the Rockies, a potential match for Steve Pearce.
The most likely contracts to be moved at today’s deadline are Steve Pearce and Matt Moore, although Jake Odorizzi and Drew Smyly are very much in play. The most recent rumors pair Moore with San Francisco, although Pittsburgh was a match in late July.
For what it’s worth, I do not expect Chris Archer to be moved mid-season, but you never know how high the offers might get!
Stay tuned, and join the conversation in our 2016 MLB Trade Deadline Open Thread!
