Rays | Yunel Escobar acquired

Updating previous items, the Tampa Bay Rays sent minor league INF Derek Dietrich to the Miami Marlins in exchange for SS Yunel Escobar. "Yunel is a quality Major League shortstop," said Andrew Friedman, executive vice president of baseball operations. "He's a good defender. Has occasional pop. We feel like he really helps solidify our infield defense, which should be a real strength next year."
