Report: Zobrist, Desmond were part of failed Mets-Rays-Nationals trade
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

A three-team trade involving the Mets, Nationals and Rays, which included players Ian Desmond and Ben Zobrist, had been discussed recently, but fell through after the Mets balked at the Rays asking price, sources told FOX Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal. 

The talks unfolded with the Nationals trading Desmond to the Rays for Zobrist and Yunel Escobar, who were eventually traded to the Athletics on Saturday. The Rays would have then dealt Desmond to the Mets, who are looking for an upgrade at shortstop.

Unfortunately, the Mets chose not to pursue the deal after the Rays requested two top prospects from a list of three, which New York considered too much for Desmond, who will be a free agent after the 2015 season. The Rays' list included Mets top pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard. It is not known who the other two targets were.

The Mets were also engaged with the Rays in a trade for Zobrist, but once again the Rays wanted two top prospects and the Mets did not want to make that deal. Zobrist will also be a free agent after the 2015 season.

A's acquire Ben Zobrist, Yunel Escobar from Rays
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Athletics have acquired infielders Ben Zobrist and Yunel Escobar from the Rays in exchange for catcher John Jaso and two prospects and cash, both clubs announced Saturday. The two prospects include shortstop Daniel Robertson and outfielder Boog Powell.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle first reported the trade, and CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman confirmed the deal.

Zobrist, a two-time All Star, is coming off a season in which he hit .272/.354/.395 over 570 at-bats. He is entering the final year of his contract, and is due $7.5 million next season. Escobar, 32, hit 258/.324/.340 with seven homers and 39 RBI over 476 at-bats in 2014. He is expected to earn $5 million this season and $7 million in 2016, with a club option for 2017 at $7 million with a $1 million buyout.

The move will likely turn recently acquired Marcus Semien into an "everyday super utility player," Slusser said.

Giants assistant GM confirms interest in Ben Zobrist
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Giants assistant general manager Bobby Evans confirmed the team has interest in Rays infielder Ben Zobrist, according to MLB Network.

The two teams have been rumored to be discussing a deal for weeks, but this is the first time interest was confirmed by a member of either club. Evans said the Giants are staying involved for Zobrist, but are realistic about the possibility of a trade. The 33-year-old Zobrist is coming off a season in which he hit .272/.354/.395 over 570 at-bats.

Report: Giants may look at versatile Rays veteran Zobrist
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Giants may look into acquiring Rays second baseman Ben Zobrist, according to Gammons Daily. 

Gammons notes that several general managers believe the club will deal prospects to acquire the 33-year-old Zobrist. San Francisco is currently slated to start Joe Panik at second, but Zobrist can play multiple positions. It's unclear where the Giants would elect to use Zobrist the most. He hit .272/.354/.395 in 570 at-bats last season. Zobrist is entering the final year of his contract, and is due $7.5 million next season.

Rays bring back 2B Ben Zobrist by exercising option
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Rays were expected to pick up the $7.5 million option on second baseman Ben Zobrist for 2015 - and they announced it Friday.

Zobrist was among the most productive players on an offense that struggled to score. He placed second on the Rays with a .272 average and tied for the team lead with 83 runs.
