Tampa Bay Rays News and Links: Hech-of-a Trade

Rays get the Hot Stove fired up early!

MLB: Kansas City Royals at Miami Marlins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

So, that was a fun off day. The Rays made a recently rumored move to go out and upgrade the SS defense, trading minor league OF Braxton Lee and RHP Ethan Clark for slick gloved SS Adeiny Hechavarria.

What does this mean for the Rays current SS Tim Beckham? It certainly sounds like the breakout Beckham still has a big role going forward. However, it may not just be as Hech’s new Double Play partner at 2nd...

As for Matt Duffy, it does sound like his tune up at the doc went well, and that the team does indeed still expect him to play this year. When that is, however, is anyone's guess.
