SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports that the Rays have interest in Ian Desmond.
Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times first raised the possibility earlier this month of the Rays perhaps having interest in Desmond on a one-year contract. Cotillo hears that the Rays parting with draft pick in order to sign the shortstop would be considered a "huge obstacle" in getting a deal done. He adds that a match between the two sides is "unlikely" at this time. Desmond has failed to generate much interest this winter, so a one-year "pillow" contract might wind up being his best play.
