Affordable Free Agents that Would Help the Rays More than B.J. Upton

Affordable Free Agents that Would Help the Rays More than B.J. Upton

Hyped by on November 28, 2012 Website:

As the MLB Hot Stove continues to heat up, the Tampa Bay Rays find themselves searching the free agent market for a handful of players who could potentially fill in empty holes on the roster.

With star centerfielder B.J. Upton leaving the team, the Rays are seeking someone who can possibly replace him in the outfield. They could also use a first baseman (Carlos Pena likely not returning), a DH (Luke Scott not returning), a catcher, a utility middle infielder and maybe some help in the bullpen as well.

Having a player like Upton leave is definitely a negative for the team, especially a team like the Rays who could use all the offense they can get, but there are a few affordable FA’s on the market who could help Tampa in 2013 at least as much as Upton can. Here are four guys the Rays should look into this winter.
