Rays In On Fuentes

On Monday, Tim talked about the Brian Fuentes situation, naming a few known suitors: the Yankees, Mets, Red Sox, Phillies, and A's. Today, Tracy Ringolsby adds another to the list, the Tampa Bay Rays. The team's current closer, Troy Percival, has missed some time with injury this year, and the Rays would like to add some insurance for late inning situations.

This would give them a viable eighth inning option to pair with Percival when healthy, especially with Al Reyes missing time with elbow tendinitis. If Percival continues to suffer from his hamstring injury, Fuentes could easily slide into the closer role. Though Grant Balfour didn't do a shabby job with that last night and Dan Wheeler is solid.

If they're so inclined, though, they certainly have the prospects to do it.
