With Major League Baseball’s 2019 trade deadline fast approaching, the Tampa Bay Rays have made a move.
The Rays reportedly will acquire infielder Eric Sogard from the Toronto Blue Jays pending a physical, as first reported by the New York Post’s Joel Sherman. The reported deal is not finalized.
It’s still unclear what the Jays will receive on their end of the deal. Sources tell TSN’s Scott Mitchell that Toronto will receive two players to be named later as details of the trade are still being finalized.
Sogard is averaging .300 at the plate this season with 30 runs batted in and 10 home runs. He was scratched Sunday from Toronto’s lineup ahead of the move.
