Ranking 35 trades that shaped the Rays, Astros, Dodgers and Braves

12. Rays trade Matthew Liberatore, Edgardo Rodriguez and supplemental second-round pick to Cardinals for Jose Martinez and Randy Arozarena, January 2020

Liberatore is a top-50 prospect. Martinez, the main pickup in this deal, didn’t hit for Tampa Bay and was traded in July for a player to be named later. But Arozarena, the postseason’s hottest hitter, has probably already won this one: He’s slugging .886 this postseason and has scored more than a quarter of the Rays’ runs. You don’t have to believe that the 25-year-old is likely to keep doing this for five more years or ignore Liberatore’s potential. The Rays are already deeper into the postseason than they’ve been in more than a decade, and Arozarena’s being an unlikely hero doesn’t make him any less of one.
