Report: Tampa Bay Rays close to landing slugger

Former Houston Astro is nearing a deal with the AL East squad.


The Tampa Bay Rays are reportedly close to adding some pop to their batting order.

According to FOX Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal, OF Colby Rasmus is close to signing with the AL East squad:

Rasmus played for the Houston Astros in 2016, batting only .206 while slugging 15 home runs and picking up 54 RBI.

It’s possible Rasmus, an outfielder by trade, could see some time at DH for the Rays, too, as the outfield/DH rotation fills out this offseason.
