Rumors that James Shields is going to the Angels for Hank Conger, Peter Bourjos, and Ervin Santana have been constant, but ESPN’s Jayson Stark tempered those rumors by noting that Evan Longoria’s return would likely cut the Rays incentive to trade Shields since, with Longoria back in the lineup, the Rays would have much-improved chances to earn a spot in the playoffs.
Stark also reported that there is a “big market” for Rays reliever Wade Davis.
James Shields will be the Rays’ first starter of their top four to start a spring game when he goes against the Red Sox Saturday in Port Charlotte.
Wade Davis will make Sunday’s road trip to Fort Myers to start against the Red Sox then Scott Kazmir will start Monday against the Twins at home. On Tuesday the Rays will roll out Matt Garza, Andy Sonnanstine, and David Price against the Blue Jays at home.
