Rays Recap: Everthing that happened at the trade deadline

New, comments

The team looks a lot different than it did two weeks ago

MLB: Detroit Tigers at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Man what a day. Rays were active sellers (and buyers, really) all the way up to the 4:00 PM deadline. So what all happened?

Rays Trade RHP Nathan Eovaldi to the Boston Red Sox for LHP Jaleen Beeks

Things started off with the Rays making an unusual in-divisional trade with the Red Sox. In return for an Eovaldi rental, the Rays got LHP Jaleen Beeks. Here’s what Wayne Cavardi from Minor League Ball had to say about the Rays return:

Rays Trade RHP Matt Andriese to the Arizona Diamondbacks for C Michael Perez and RHP Brian Shaffer

Rays sent Andriese to the Dbacks for Catcher MIchael Perez, who provides immediate help at catcher with Wilson Ramos hitting the DL (and, spoiler alert, eventually traded). Rays also acquire a low level piece in Brian Shaffer

Rays Trade LHP Jonny Venters to the Atlanta Braves for International Slot Money

In one of the best feel good stories of the year, Jonny Venters goes to his original team, the Atlanta Braves, for international slot money. I love baseball.

Rays Trade LHP Hunter Schryver to Chicago White Sox for International Slot Money

A minor move that might pay off dividends in the Rays pursuit of international FA this year. First reported by Neil Solandz, and supposedly up to $1 million.

Rays Trade OF Justin Williams, LHP Genisis Cabrera, and RHP Roel Ramirez to the St. Louis Cardinals for OF Tommy Pham.

Here’s what started the trade frenzy today, with an unexpected trade for OF Tommy Pham.

Rays Trade C Wilson Ramos to Philadelphia Phillies for a PTBNL or Cash Considerations

We all knew this trade was coming, some even wished it might not happen with Ramos on the DL with a hamstring injury, but the Rays found a partner with Philly.

Wilson Ramos’ reaction to being traded:

Rays Trade RHP Chris Archer to the Pittsburgh Pirates for RHP Tyler Glasnow, OF Austin Meadows and PTBNL

Here was the big one. After a frenzy of rumors, reported interest from multiple teams (including the Yankees at one point), it finally happened. Archer is going to the Steel City where he can re-join former Rays Corey Dickerson and Sean Rodriguez.
