The Rays are trying to cut salary and add top young players at the same time. They do need a 1st baseman, and bullpen help, of which we are stocked with so why not look at them for a trade partner!
1)Yonder Alonzo- blocked by Votto, would give the Rays a top prospect at a position of need.
2)Logan Ondrusek-fills middle relief role for them.
3)Brad Boxberger(AA)-middle of rotation prospect
1) Matt Garza-he becomes our #1 and allows us to have a solid rotation w/o overpaying for someone like Grienke, as the Rays need to create a rotation spot for Jeremy Hellickson.
Reds rotation thus becomes very deep:
thus allowing us to package 1-2 of the 5th starters to a team for a legit LF!
