    This is an intriguing trade for the Rays. I’m 60-40 in favor of it. I don’t think the Dodgers can afford to lose Urias though, so this trade is unlikely to go down.

    From the Rays perspective, they have Brujan ready to call up on day 1, so they could afford to part with B.Lowe. Brujan won’t be able to replace B.Lowe’s performance in year 1, not by a long shot. I think it’s optimistic to expect even 1/2 of B.Lowe’s performance in year 1, but the the loss in performance from B.Lowe to Brujan might be made up by Urias alone. A rotation of Kluber, Urias, McClanny, Patino, Rasmussen, and Baz would be pretty darn good in my opinion. The Rays would improve their Farm with Busch and Cartaya and further strengthen the LHP side of the Pen with Vesia. The Rays pitching would be a solid strength in the post-season, rather than the achilles heel it was in 2021. Losing B.Lowe would hurt though.

    This trade would require the Rays to move KK to offset Urias’ salary though, but that’s probably happening no matter what.
