Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune brings us the latest player that the Rays may be kicking the tires on. And this time, the Rays may be getting serious (via Twitter)…
Rays appear to be getting serious about Brewers’ Corey Hart. TB has pitching to trade with Futures starter Jeremy Hellickson ready.
Some have interpreted that to mean the Rays are willing to trade Jeremy Hellickson for Corey Hart. We read the tweet differently. Rather we read that to mean the Rays are willing to trade a starting pitcher (Wade Davis?), because they have depth at that position.
Hart is a solid right-handed bat from the Brewers that would fit in nicely at DH for the Rays. 2010 marks his fourth full-season in the big leagues and he is off to a career-year, hitting .288-21-65 with a .349 OBP.
