    The Rays are in 4th place and 15 out in the division. It’s way more likely they trade their vets than buy someone else’s.

        56%. Essentially a coin flip. The Rays won’t trade 35 million worth of future value so that they get to call it in the air.

          I don’t think the Rays’ playoff odds are going to dictate their actions much. RFO could easily look at their record and think “imagine how good we’ll be when B.Lowe, Fairbanks, Feyer, Anderson, Chargois, Patino, and maybe even Glasnow return” and decide they should add or just stand pat as a result. The Rays may not have a chance at catching the Yankees, but they absolutely should be playoff contenders til the very end.

          Your second point is absolutely spot on though. Rays don’t trade prospects for expensive veterans. The only exception I can think of is the Cruz trade, and that trade appeared to fill the Rays biggest need with the perfect player. It also blew up in their face with Cruz struggling with the Rays and J.Ryan becoming a really good ML pitcher in his rookie year. This year’s team needs a catcher, a power bat and maybe a RHRP or two. Contreras would fill a huge hole in the team, but I struggle to see the Rays giving up $13MM for him. That’s the Cruz trade all over, except that Contreras sucks at the catching portion of his job, so it’s not a perfect fit (all the more so when you consider the Rays have the leading CY contender in McClanny, which Contreras could derail). Happ is even less likely because he costs so much more trade capital to acquire, has only 1.5 years of control, and doesn’t fill a huge need in the field.
