The 2018 Spring Season is fast approaching, and for the Rays it’s a new beginning. The Rays have recently traded many players to different MLB teams. Including, the famous third basemen, Evan Longoria, who has been a Ray since 2008. They also traded right fielder Steven Souza Jr to the Arizona Diamondbacks. Many more trades have been made but the Rays have made up for them by signing many new prospects just now coming into the Major Leagues. The Rays are going to have to adapt to the new players and may have a few off years. When the new prospects begin to work as a team there are statistics showing that the Rays will prosper and once again make it to the World Series.
