Shane Baz Newsbeat

Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Shane Baz is the player to be named later in the Chris Archer deal | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

This was a very good trade for the Rays.

Still, the Meadows-Glasnow-Baz price tag is significant, as will be the criticism general manager Neal Huntington takes in some circles for agreeing to it — an ironic twist, given the heat he previously was under for failing to materially improve the roster.

Considerable upside aside, Baz — and Meadows and Glasnow, for that matter — is far from a sure thing. If they all reach their peaks as Archer fails to reach his, it’ll be looked back upon as a disaster. If they don’t, and if Archer returns to something approaching his 2015 self, it won’t.
