Rays Trade Block

We've got a stable of solid arms we're looking to move, namely


SP Brian Matusz - Solid SP who, aside from one initial start with us, did great coming over from Cincinnati. 10-8, 3.88 ERA in 2017  as well

SP Austin Brice - Just 26, Brice had some control issues the 1st half of 2018 (4.1 BB/9), but rounded into form the 2nd half (2.7 BB/9). Signed to a very reasonable contract and was lights-out in 2017 (13-9, 2.92 ERA)

SP/MR Alexander Colome - Colome is another guy who was great for us in 2017 (2.91 ERA in 120 IP) but took a step back in 2018. Can start or relieve, hard thrower with 3 plus pitches

MR/CL Josh Lueke - Our 2017 Closer is also available after an injury plagued 2018 campaign. Ratins are still there, throws hard, killer split and signed reasonably. 30 Saves and 2.68 ERA in 97 IP in 2017

MR Daniel Tillman - Tillman actually went the other way - had a rough 2017 but was quietly stellar in 2018 to the tune of a 2.78 ERA in 58 Games. Throws 97 and 3 plus pitches


..and here are more guys I'd move, but am too lazy to write up:

SP De Los Santos, SP Gabe Guerrero, MR Corrales, MR Jacobson

One last arm, that kinda deserves his own category is SP Zach Potter. Just 24, he's a legit #2/3, but he is currently injuries until ~August 2019. I'll cut a bit of a break for the injury, but I'd move him if I'm getting back what I'm looking for (see below)


We do have a couple bats we'd move

LF Chiang, 3B Seager, 1B Marrero, LF Rosario, LF Parker


and as always, I'll always listen on any player in my entire organization, but at least come with a starting point offer in that case.


For most of these guys, I'm just looking for a prospect or two back (of varying quality depending on who you want), say aside from Potter and Matusz


Ideally though I'm looking for a RH or S corner OF with pop who can play vsL or vsR - I can also send along one of my existing OFs - Rosario or Parker to help fill back the hole.
