Supposedly the Rays and Cards are in talks to move Colby Rasmus from under the arch to the Sunshine State. At 24 years old and making under half a million a year right now, it definitely fits it the Rays wheelhouse. Batting average at .246 right now doesn’t look like much, but slugging percentage was a tick under .500 last year and OPS at .859 last year (and .742 right now) doesn’t suck. Young potential at a great deal. Not a bad addition, probably.
The swap? Well, likely a Hellickson or a Wade Davis type. Someone in the same caliber, but a different position. And with Alex Cobb making his way up a couple times this year, he may be primed to take the vacant spot.
You heard it hear first, folks! Unless you were watching the same bullshit on TV that I was….in which case you heard it there first just like I did. But it sure seems more important when I say it.
