Report: Rays Zeroing In On Justin Wilson, Talks Gaining Traction
The Tampa Bay Rays are eyeing Justin Wilson as the solution to their bullpen problems.
Per Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, “there is some traction in talks” between the Rays and the Tigers regarding a potential Wilson trade.
MLB.com’s Jason Beck adds that though the Tigers are “getting a ton of interest on Wilson, nothing (is) close to a deal yet.”
So if Tampa doesn’t feel comfortable with the Tigers’ asking price for Wilson, they’ll likely look elsewhere.
MLB.com’s Jon Morosi adds that the Nationals “continue to show interest” in Wilson, even after acquiring relievers Ryan Madson and Sean Doolittle from the A’s over the weekend.
