The Matt Garza Trade Conference Call

Rancel was all over it for ESPN1040. Read the full thing over there, here’s a few slices of pertinent information:

While Jeremy Hellickson is the heavy favorite to replace Matt Garza in the Rays rotation, Friedman would not hand him the job right now, noting “those decisions don’t get made in January.”

When I asked about Jake McGee possibly competing for a rotation spot, Friedman said it would be a conversation they would have a lot more as they head toward spring training, adding that some in the organization feel the lefty could be an “impact guy” out of the bullpen.

On re-allocating Garza’s money into the 2011 team, Friedman said “that’s certainly the goal” mentioning relief pitching and addition bats as areas of interest.
