Rays Trade Sean Rodriguez to Pirates
The Rays have traded Sean Rodriguez to the Pirates for a player to be named later and cash considerations, according to Jerry Crasnick.
There’s not much to say about the Rays’ return here. Presumably, the player to be named later hinges on whether he is selected in the upcoming Rule 5 draft or not.
As for Rodriguez, the most accomplished of the players Tampa Bay acquired for Scott Kazmir, he was heading into his final season of team control. Given the Rays’ depth in the infield, it’s not a surprise that he was on the move. We wish him well.
