    The Rays season hasn’t exactly started out well. If it goes into the toilet, the Rays might consider trading Glas at the deadline. It would take a great package to move him this year, but the White Sox have the goods and perhaps the motivation. Glas should be in the CYA discussion all year and he has 2 years of control beyond 2021. If the Rays move him, they’ll want a top pitching prospect and a top position player at an area of need (OF, 1B, C, 3B). Chicago has both.

      crochet seems a lot more tradable than vaughn but I still doubt they would trade either for a starter right now rather than sticking to their long term plan of kopech and crochet in the rotation.

        Totally understandable perspective for April. Right now the Rays see themselves as a playoff contender, despite their stooges like performance to start the season. They would laugh at the thought of trading Glas this year. Things change though. If Glas continues pitching at the level he has so far this year, he’s a TOR pitcher for all but maybe 5 teams in the league. Just the kind of pitcher teams sell out for at the deadline. The biggest problem to trading him this year would be cost. He would be ridiculously costly this year because of his 3 years of control (and ridiculously low salary). Next year makes more sense both because he’ll be cheaper but also because he would be able to mentor the Rays’ young pitchers coming up this year.

        In any event, there are only a few select teams with both the trade chips and possible desire to pay what it takes for Glas. The White Sox are one of those teams.
