Rays Close To Re-Signing James Loney

The Rays are on the verge of re-signing first baseman James Loney to a multiyear deal, according to ESPN's Buster Olney (on Twitter).

Loney, a client of the Legacy Agency, was said to be seeking a three-year deal in the $27-30MM range as recently as nine days ago. The 29-year-old Loney batted .299/.348/.430 with 13 homers in 2013 and comes with a reputation for sterling defense at first base. He's one of a number of first base options to have been linked to the Rays recently. Tampa Bay was said to have some interest in Logan Morrison prior to his trade to the Mariners. The trade market presents other potentially available options in the form of Ike Davis and Mitch Moreland.
