Report: Jason Bartlett Trade Talks Progressing Well

Source:

Heard this: the trade talks involving Jason Bartlett have moved to point where the Rays will find an acceptable deal for the shortstop.

The deadline to tender contracts to arbitration-eligible players is Thursday night. Don’t be surprised if Bartlett is moved by then. As for the return, the best guess is something similar to the Akinori Iwamura deal; a young-ish (although age is mostly irrelevant for relievers) power arm with years of cost control remaining and some perceivable upside. The good news is that the reportedly interested teams have a lot of those guys.
