NJ Advance Media for NJ.com’s Randy Miller posted that Jon Morosi of mlb.com reported that there could be a deal between the Rays and the Dodgers for the Rays’ Longoria. According to Miller, Longoria has a 6 year $100 million contract extension that kicks in next year.
According to Miller, Morosi believes that the deal could be complete, but there would be a low probability that the deal would be complete by the Aug-1 nonwaiver trade deadline.
