Interest in Zobrist
While most of the trade rumors involving Rays players revolve around David Price, versatile Ben Zobrist has been another name drawing interest.
The latest rumor involving Zobrist comes from FOX Sports’ Jon Paul Morosi (Twitter links), who reported that the Giants are one of “multiple teams” who are “ready to act” in the event that the Rays decide to trade Zobrist.
With Thursday’s trade deadline looming, the Rays are not tipping their hand regarding their intentions for the remainder of the season. Though the Rays enter Monday’s action 7 1/2 games behind the Orioles in the AL East, they are very much in the hunt for a Wild Card slot. Thus, the team is in an interesting position when considering any possible changes to the team.
