That was the word this morning in Tampa. Rays manager Joe Madden was asked the possibility of Blalock signing a minor league deal during his morning briefing. Here's what he said, according to MLB.com:
"I don't know. I know Andrew [Friedman, Rays executive vice president of baseball operations] is taking care of all that stuff," Maddon said. "I anticipate that it's going to get done relatively soon. I just don't know exactly what's going on. I did talk to Andrew yesterday."
How do you think Blalock will do in Tampa?
