  • Rays' Cole Sulser: Sent to Rays

    Sulser was traded from the Indians to the Rays on Thursday along with Yandy Diaz in exchange for Jake Bauers.

    Sulser spent the majority of 2018 with Triple-A Columbus, posting a 4.53 ERA and 78:16 K:BB across 51.2 innings of relief. The 28-year-old has yet to reach the majors and figures to serve as organizational bullpen depth for his new team.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Dealt to Rays

    The Indians traded Diaz to the Rays on Thursday as part of a three-team deal with the Mariners, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Rays view Diaz as an upgrade both offensively and defensively over Jake Bauers, who heads to Cleveland in the deal. Diaz still has yet to get to much in-game power, but he puts bat to ball with consistency, and don't put it past the Rays and their analytics team to unlock something in the power department. He will likely see time at both first and third in 2019.

  • Rays' Jake Bauers: Viewed as primary option at first

    General manager Erik Neander said Bauers is "our guy" at first base heading into 2019, Juan Toribio of The Athletic reports.

    Neander added that the Rays will look at all options -- which could mean bringing in a righty-swinging first baseman -- but it sounds like Bauers will at least handle the larger side of a platoon at first base in his sophomore season. The 23-year-old's rookie campaign was marred by a brutal slump in summer, and he finished with a disappointing .201/.316/.384 line in 96 games. He'll look to use his experience against major-league pitching to improve in 2019.

  • Rays' Charlie Morton: Inks deal with Tampa Bay

    Morton agreed to a two-year, $30 million contract with the Rays on Wednesday, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.

    Morton did not receive a qualifying offer from Houston after logging a 3.13 ERA and 1.16 WHIP across 30 starts for the team in 2018. The 35-year-old has been a reliable pitcher the past two seasons after undergoing season-ending hamstring surgery in April of 2016, and he should slot in behind Blake Snell as the No. 2 arm on Tampa Bay's staff. In 313.2 innings of work dating back to that hamstring tear, he's recorded 364 strikeouts to just 114 walks and a 1.0 HR/9.

  • Rays' Brent Honeywell: Aiming to return in May or June

    Honeywell (elbow) is expected to return to pitch for a Rays' minor-league affiliate sometime in May or June, Juan Toribio of The Athletic reports.

    The team isn't giving a precise timeline at this point, but Honeywell seems to be more of less on the typical timeline following Tommy John surgery in February. The 23-year-old is yet to make his big-league debut but seemed to be on the verge of doing that when he suffered his elbow injury. If he looks good in the minors, it may not be long before he's up in the big leagues, though his workload will be monitored very closely throughout his first year back.
