Tampa Bay Rays executive vice president Andrew Friedman has said his team will not make any huge moves come trade-deadline time July 31, but there could be some moves made. "We are always looking to improve, and between now and Wednesday, we're going to do everything we can to do that," Friedman said. "But I can't overstate our confidence in the team that we have. This is a tremendous group of guys, and the worst thing we can do is to feel pressure to make a move just for its own sake."
