Longoria has been linked to the Cardinals in recent weeks, but he'll surely draw interest from other clubs if the Rays truly intend to shop him.

  • Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that trade talks between the Rays and Cardinals could expand to including Evan Longoria.<p><b>Advice</b>: Earlier this month, it was reported that the Rays and Cardinals were discussing a trade for closer Alex Colome. Goold now says those talks could include (or pivot to) Longoria. The 32-year-old third baseman still has at least $86 million owed to him through 2022, with an option that could make it $94 million through 2023. If the Rays are serious about trading the lifetime face-of-the-franchise, they will likely do it before the season, as two weeks in he'll earn 10-and-5 no-trade rights. He's coming off his second-worst full season offensively, but his right-handed power and solid defense at third base would still be an upgrade for St. Louis. This may be Plan B to landing Giancarlo Stanton.</p><p><b>More</b>: <a href="http://www.stltoday.com/sports/baseball/professional/cardinals-add-to-depth-by-signing-pitcher-who-starred-in/article_e88a8244-389a-557c-8de1-adae893828d2.html">St. Louis Dispatch</a></p>
