The Tampa Bay Rays and Seattle Mariners are finalizing an agreement that would send reliever Diego Castillo to the Pacific Northwest for fellow right-hander JT Chargois and infield prospect Austin Shenton.
With the trade deadline quickly approaching, one huge question surrounds the Tampa Bay Rays: will they land another impact player?
After winning three of four against Cleveland, and five of the last seven, the Tampa Bay Rays return to the friendly confines of the Trop, where they will start a three-game set against the New York Yankees on Tuesday.
The Tampa Bay Rays claimed right-hander Jake Reed from the Dodgers and placed right-hander Collin McHugh on the 10-Day Injured List with arm fatigue.
On Friday, the Tampa Bay Rays opted to part way with veteran left-hander Rich Hill, who they sent to the New York Mets for veteran right-handed reliever Tommy Hunter (currently on the 60-Day Injured List) and minor league catcher/infielder Matt Dyer.
