Rays Trade Joe Inglett to Houston

According to Brian McTaggart of MLB.com’s Twitter feed (hat tip to Free Zorilla:

The Astros have acquired IF Joe Inglett from the Tampa Bay Rays for a player to be named later or cash considerations

Inglett only signed with the Rays about a month ago, but I would suspect he’ll be a part of the Astros’ bench. I’m curious as to whether this is a handshake agreement between Inglett and Andrew Friedman in a similar manner to Adam Kennedy a few years ago. Essentially, if a team came calling and offering a big league spot for the vet, the Rays wouldn’t stand in his way. Of course, the team acquired Joe Dillon then, so the expected return is small here. Maybe it’ll be another veteran, maybe a live arm on the farm, or maybe just cash. Nevertheless, here’s hoping Inglett makes the most of his new-found opportunity.
