Report: Rays have interest in Rasmus, could deal Zobrist

Outfielder Colby Rasmus remains one of the top free agent targets left on the market, and the Rays appear to be interested.

FOXSports.com‘s Jon Morosi tweeted that the Rays “have had discussions” with the free agent, and could be especially willing to add the outfield bat if they trade Ben Zobrist.

Rasmus, 28, appeared in 104 games for the Blue Jays last year, batting .225 with a .735 OPS.

The Rays currently have an outfield depth chart that features Desmond Jennings in center field, David DeJesus in left, Stephen Souza (recently acquired from the Nats) in right and Zobrist — who can play multiple positions — at second base.
