Rays acquired SS Nick Franklin in a three-team trade that sent LHP David Price to the Tigers.
Tampa Bay immediately optioned Franklin to Triple-A. It seems as though Tampa Bay is viewing Franklin as Ben Zobrist 2.0, so it's a little disappointing they couldn't move Ben Zobrist 1.0 today to open a spot in the lineup. The talented 23-year-old raced through the minor leagues -- his time at Low-A Clinton was even chronicled in the 2013 book Class A -- but fell out of favor in Seattle by slashing a rough .214/.291/.358 over 119 games the past two seasons. The former top prospect has destroyed, and continues to destroy, minor league pitching, so this is an interesting gamble by Andrew Friedman. Jul 31 - 6:07 PM
