2019-10-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Rays are in a bit of a tough yet enviable situation of having too much current and future talent to hold it all on the 40-man. Who do you see taking a step forward and who do you see being traded?
(duhbear from VT)
I mean they have nice depth but I don't think they're in a significantly different situation than a few other clubs. There are some easy cuts on that roster (de Leon, Zunino) and some FA types (Sogard, Garcia). In terms of guys they might trade, it's probably their areas of depth: Relievers and 1B/DH types. Choi had a nice year and can easily be part of their future, but you've got Nate Lowe there, too. Depth is the name of the game though, so I'd expect it to be more of the fringe relief types who end up running out of options and the like. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why is Nate Lowe not in the Rays lineup every day instead of AAA?
(Eddie from Tacoma)
Well, because they have Aguilar, Choi, and Garcia at 1B/DH. Would I rather have Lowe over one or more of those guys? I would, but he has options and they aren't struggling as it is. Plus they have McKay's flexibility to pinch hit and whatnot. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-07-31 12:00:00 (link to chat)Jesus Aguilar is now a Ray. Nate Lowe better no be going back down....
(Matt from Boston)
We'll see. It seems like a fair deal for both teams. A worthwhile gamble for Tampa to get a guy back o track who can impact their lineup for a guy in Faria who it seemed like they'd soured on. Milwaukee gets another multi-inning/outgetter type arm for their pen. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-07-31 12:00:00 (link to chat)Why do the Rays seem to hate a productive Nate Lowe?
(dzemens from Toledo)
I don't think they do. This is about improving the lineup and Aguilar can be a useful right-handed complement to Choi and Lowe, potentially. (Craig Goldstein)
