Rays Trade Jepsen

The Rays have dealt away Kevin Jepsen for minor league pitchers Chih-Wei Hu and Alex Tapia.


Hu was singled out by Carston Cistulli of Fangraphs earlier this season as one of his Fringe Five to watch citing his youth and the palmball he uses as his offspeed pitch shown in the image below as he strikes out current Durham Bulls infielder Vince Belnome in his only Triple-A outing this season.

Hu also received favorable reviews from both his Triple-A manager Mike Quade and catcher Eric Fryer for the start he made back in April before he was sent back to High-A Fort Myers.
