The Rays Rumor Mill

By Dustin Staggers

I have heard from a source within MLB, that the Rangers are considering moving the recently acquired RHP Chris Ray to the Tampa Bay Rays for C Dioner Navarro.

There are a few verifications of this within some blogs and forums of Texas Rangers sites.

This is a slam dunk move for the Rays in every way shape and form.

  1. Even after acquiring Rafael Soriano, the Rays need more help in the bullpen.
  2. Navarro makes over 2.5 million dollars, and Ray shouldn’t see more than 1-1.5 in arbitration.
  3. Ray is one of my real good friends!
  4. If we can get these stats, pre-Tommy John stats, remember last year was his first year back from TJS, we’ll be stacked in the pen.

Bam!!!! This makes so much sense for the Rays, that I’m honestly a little giddy for it to  happen, right now.

I’ll let you know throughout the day if I can substantiate this rumor a little more.
