We learned earlier today that the Rays would prefer to hold on to their starting pitching, something we have heard in the past. But now Troy Renck of the Denver Post says the Rays may just be waiting to make a move.
Renck says several teams are “letting the market breathe” before they decide whether they will trade a starting pitcher. The Rays and Marlins are two teams that Renck specifically mentions.
Renck also notes that the Rockies are looking for a “No. 3-type starter who can gulp quality innings,” and that the team has interest in both Wade Davis and Jeff Niemann.
