PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Rays traded second baseman Logan Forsythe to the Los Angeles Dodgers during the offseason and Rays third baseman Evan Longoria is having a tough time coming to terms with his departure.
The Rays acquired pitching prospect Jose DeLeon in the deal, but Longoria still has trouble dealing with his friend being dealt.
“I don’t know that I’ll ever get over losing Logan, because we got real close and he became one of the clubhouse leaders,” Longoria said. “So when you take that away, it feels like there’s a much bigger void.” (Jayson Stark ESPN post)
Longoria said that he likes how the team looks, but it remains to be seen how the puzzle will finally be put together.
