Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Billy Butler is someone the Rays are considering.
Topkin also says the club could "possibly" consider Matt Wieters, although that seems highly unlikely after they inked Wilson Ramos to a two-year contract. Butler would give the Rays an option at designated hitter and possibly occasionally at first base against left-handed pitching, although his success against southpaws has waned the last two seasons. He'll turn 31 in April and surely can be had cheaply after batting just .266/.325/.390 over the last three campaigns. Jan 27 - 9:36 AM
