    I don’t think the Rays would be interested in this trade. Adams wouldn’t play CF for the Rays with his weak arm and he lacks the bat for COF.

      Ok. I just want Angels to trade for Wendle to address SS hole because he will be cheaper than top 5 SS(He has two years control with arbitration). Furthermore, his contact is good and his power is above average. His defense is also terrific.

      • M P

        Fair enough. I think Wendle is the most likely Ray to be traded this year, so if the Angels want him, he should be available.

        What do you say to Wendle for Vera (switch hitting SS with 2 years remaining before Rule 5 eligibility) and Landon Marceaux (2021 3rd round RHP)? I think the Rays will be looking for pitching (which the Angels don’t have) and restocking the Farm in their offseason trades this Winter. This trade does the latter.

          I don’t think Rays want another SS, because they have Franco and Walls. I think Rays want pitchers. But I don’t know will they want OF?

            LOL. You would think that (I know I have), but they continue to trade for SS and draft SS.

            The holes on the Rays’ 2022 team are pretty few.

            ** Outfield – I could see them target an outfielder, or roll into 2022 with Aroz (LF), KK (CF), Phillips (CF/RF), J.Lowe (RF) and Luplow (4th outfielder – COF). The downside to that group is that none of the righties (Aroz and Luplow) can play CF. Margot is gone next year.

            ** DH – I could see the Rays target a new 1B/DH, as one of Meadows or Choi could be traded in the offseason. Both players have warts and both will make about $4-5M next year, which is rich for the Rays.

            ** Pitching – Rays need 1-2 starters, and maybe another high leverage reliever. That’s probably their greatest need in the offseason. Next year’s rotation will have McClanny, Ras, and Patino in all likelihood as options 1-3. Yarbs needs to go, but that leaves Fleming, Chirinos and rookies Myers and Romero for opening day. That’s not a particularly strong group, and the Rays should look to bring in 1-2 pitchers to augment that group. The Rays will promote Baz at some point in the first half and might get Glasnow back at some point in the 2nd half (I’m skeptical of Glas returning next year, but that’s another discussion). Still, as this year has shown, you can never have enough pitchers.
