In case you forgot the Tampa Bay Rays are rumored to be interested in Josh Harrison.

The Rays were rumored to be one of roughly five or so teams interested in the former Pittsburgh Pirates utility man Josh Harrison.  Their interest in a free agent infielder is interesting to say the least. I always enjoyed watching Harrison play the game. He is a gamer like Wendle. He would bring added experience to a young team along with added flexibility and pop.

The question remains though: Are they getting ready to sign an infielder because an in-house infielder is about to be shipped to Miami in a J.T. Realmuto package?

Here is some of what I had to say about Harrison, with the full story below.

"He would bring some added experience to a young Rays clubhouse as he has played on 3 playoff teams. I like the fact that the Rays are interested in adding Harrison, but it would mean that someone in the already crowded infield would have to go. Duffy, perhaps would be the odd man out and Harrison and Robertson would share the third base duty."
