The relief market shrinks.

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at Philadelphia Phillies Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Rays are allegedly looking for relief help on the trade market, so it’s news whenever a reliever is traded to someone else, and that market shrinks. Yesterday, that was Pat Neshek, going from the Phillie to the Rockies for a package of prospects.

  • Shortstop prospect Lucius Fox was promoted to High-A Charlotte.
  • Chris Gigley wrote about sexism now, baseball, and A League of Their Own on the movie’s 25th anniversary.
  • KATOH’s midseason prospect list is out.
  • Adrian Beltre is funny.
  • The manager of the baseball strategy group for the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles, Shingo Murata, went on the Effectively Wild podcast yesterday to talk about baseball statistics analysis on Japan. It’s a good interview for anyone interested in Japanese baseball, and Murata sounds like a really smart, cool, probably handsome guy. When asked, “Is it fair to say that the Golden Eagles are the Rays, or the A’s, or the Indians?” Murata says, “I’d like to think we are.”
