The buzz in baseball indicates Tampa will look to flip Denard Span, who they acquired Wednesday from the Giants for 3B Evan Longoria.
They Rays are also expected to continue talking with teams interested in acquiring C Wilson Ramos, ace RHP Chris Archer, and closer Alex Colome.
The Mets tried to get Colome last winter, and reportedly checked in on him again this winter. I wonder if they'll also show interest in Span, who is due $11 million next season with a $12 million team option for 2019. The option can be bought out for $4 million.
Span is not very good in the field, especially on balls hit in the gap. In fact, Michael Conforto is easily a better defensive center fielder than Span, who is dwarfed by Juan Lagares. However, at the plate, he's going to put the ball in play, hit more home runs, and get on base more than Lagares.
