Rays Rumors: Tampa Bay Seeking Center Fielder

The Tampa Bay Rays continue to look around for a center fielder, according to Jayson Stark of ESPN, who adds there’s “not much out there.” Stark continues on to speculate that the Rays could be an ultimate landing spot for free agent center fielder Michael Bourn.


Beyond Bourn, the only other free agent center fielders remaining on the market are Nyjer Morgan, Scott Podsednik and Grady Sizemore. Morgan and Podsednik started 48 and 18 games in center last season for the Milwaukee Brewers and Boston Red Sox, while Sizemore missed the entire year due to injury.

Sizemore provides a higher upside potential than Morgan or Podsednik, but he’s said that he may wait until mid-season to sign with a team. The 30-year-old wants to be completely healthy before signing with his next club.

Bourn might be had at a reduced cost considering he’s remaining on the market this long into the winter. However, his agent is Scott Boras, and there’s no telling what type of contract the free agent may still wind up with.
