Rays Interested In Brandon Nimmo

In a market thin on center field help, Brandon Nimmo has naturally drawn a lot of interest on the free agent market. Many of baseball’s bigger spenders have been linked to the former Mets standout, but according to Jon Heyman of the New York Post, the low-payroll Rays are also a rather surprising suitor for Nimmo’s services.

Rays’ roster changing this offseason

ST. PETERSBURG — A few weeks into the offseason, the Rays have turned over quite a bit of their roster. Mike Zunino, David Peralta and Corey Kluber became free agents. Out went Ji-Man Choi, Nick Anderson and Kevin Kiermaier. Then, Tuesday’s reserve list deadline spurred more movement, as the Rays traded reliever JT Chargois and cut ties with Ryan Yarbrough, Javy Guerra and others to make room for five top prospects. They officially parted ways with Yarbrough and Guerra prior to Friday’s non-tender deadline.

How did all of those contracts turn out for the Rays?

The Rays do not often venture into the free-agent market, but they have been aggressive signing their own players to long-term deals. Here are the 15 largest multiyear deals in team history, including how long the player stayed in Tampa Bay during the contract and how much of the deal was paid by the Rays.
