Tampa Bay Rays News and Links: Rays make it official with Marte

Another Marlin wants out of Miami.

Tampa Bay Rays
  • The Rays finalized the deal for the No 3 IFA, 16-year old SS Jelfry Marte.
  • Now with Marte officially signed, MLB Pipeline has added him to the team top 30 ranks, slotting him in at #14 (just ahead of another former highly ranked IFA):

...the Rays don’t really have a shot in the AL East in 2018 and they know it. But they should also not make deals just to make deals, and have other players to shop around such as Chris Archer. A Longoria trade would have to be a perfect situation for the Rays to pull the trigger, and this is far from that.
