If Evan Longoria isn’t a Tampa Bay Ray for life, it certainly won’t be for a lack of trying.
The third baseman agreed to a six-year, $100 million contract extension with the team on Monday, which means that he will be under team control until 2023.

Until he was dethroned by Mike Trout this summer, Evan Longoria had been a fixture atop my annual Trade Value series. It was partially due to the fact that he was both young and an excellent player, but, primarily, he ruled the list because his contract was so absurdly slanted in the Rays favor.

The Red Sox announced that they have traded reliever Sandy Rosario to the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday for future considerations — either a player to be named later or cash.
