Report: Rays could be 'open for business'


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) The Rays are rumored to be "open for business" at the trade deadline, according to ESPN.

The club currently sits at 31-48, and are expected to sell of valuable pieces for future talent. David Price is considered the biggest prize, but Ben Zobrist may also be a useful asset. Both players are under contract next season. Price has one more year of arbitration, while Zobrist's deal contains a club option for 2015. 

Lesser players will also likely be available, though Zobrist and Price would be the biggest prizes if put on the market. It's unclear how soon the team is looking to move talent.

Ben Zobrist decision coming Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) The Rays will decide whether Ben Zobrist will require a stint on the disabled list Thursday, according to the Tampa Tribune

Zobrist dislocated his thumb sliding into second base Wednesday, and could miss two weeks due to the injury. If the team feels he can play sooner, Zobrist would not be placed on the disabled list, and would likely miss four or five games.

Zobrist, however, seemed to suggest it might take a while before he's back. "Best-case scenario, it heals very quickly and I can get back on the field, I don’t know, maybe within a week, but that’s unlikely," Zobrist said. 

Infielder Cole Figueroa is expected to replace Zobrist if he winds up on the disabled list. Zobrist is hitting .260/.352/.364 in 154 at-bats.
